Briggs & Forrester Special Projects Complete UK Battery Industrialisation Centre Project

Acting as Principal Contractors, Briggs & Forrester Special Projects have successfully completed building services work on a project at the UK Battery Industrialisation Centre, the UK’s national manufacturing battery development facility, which provides manufacturing scale-up and skills for the battery sector.

The works involved the installation of backup chillers which entailed the design and modification of the current mechanical and electrical services. The facility’s cooling coils, which are housed in nine dehumidifiers and keep existing clean and dry rooms at a specific dewpoint, are served by the existing 1oC CHW system. In the event that the current system fails or needs maintenance, the resilience chiller will provide chilled water.

The full works included chiller water system, new chiller power supply, BMS controls and associated plant bases.
