Acting as Principal Contractor, Briggs & Forrester Special Projects have successfully completed the installation of air source heat pumps at Cranfield University, thanks to government funding.
The ambitious project has been funded through the Phase 3a of the Public Sector Decarbonisation Scheme. The scheme is initiated by the Department for Energy Security and Net Zero and is delivered by Salix Finance. The works have included the full design and build of electrical and mechanical services installation of two combined 1MW air source heat pumps and a 1MW water source heat pump to provide renewable heat and reduced gas consumption to the campus heating system.
This followed on from the previous phase of installing two combined 1MW air source heat pumps along with power supplies, a BMS system and interconnecting pipework from the pumps to the main district heating.
