CHP plant reduces hospital's footprint

Since achieving foundation trust status in 2005, Frimley Park Hospital—a 700-bed facility in the commuter town of Frimley, Surrey, about 30 miles from London—has made significant financial investments to enhance its acute services for the nearly 365,000 people in the North East Hampshire and West Surrey region.

After hiring a full-time environmental officer in 2006, the forward-thinking hospital trust also adopted a greener agenda, continually raising awareness of energy issues among its 4,000 employees and nearby residents. Recently, the hospital took a huge step toward reducing its carbon footprint with a new tri-generation project featuring a combined heat and power (CHP) plant driven by Cummins Power Generation Inc.

Michael Rule, sales manager for Cummins Power Generation said the hospital trust's decision to go with a cogeneration solution will have long-term benefits—both financially and environmentally. "In addition to saving money in the long run, Frimley Park Hospital has taken an important step in reducing its carbon footprint," Rule said. "That’s a win-win
situation that you just can't beat."
