Vital Energi succeeded in a £6.58m contract to deliver ThamesWey Energy’s Woking Power Station project. The work will create a state-of-the-art Combined Heat & Power energy centre providing low-carbon heating and power to local businesses and residents.
Enough heat and power to supply the equivalent of 2,500 homes will be done by the energy centre. The first customers will be the new Hilton hotel, shops and over 400 apartments currently being delivered as part of the Victoria Square development.
The energy centre comprises a three-storey building at the junction of Poole Road and Butts Road. The energy plant and equipment are based on the ground and first floors and ThamesWey on the third floor of the new headquarters.
The building is being constructed to be capable of upward extension of up to a further 17 stories of co-living space. When complete the flues from the energy centre will measure 29.3m. The project is being delivered for ThamesWey by Galliford Try.
Hulley & Kirkwood are the mechanical and engineering consultants on the project while Vital Energi have been working on the project since 2018 and recently won the contract to undertake the mechanical and electrical services installations.
