Students and staff have moved into the new Monaghan Education Campus.
The campus comprises of 5 buildings:
· A 16 classroom all Irish Primary School
· A 400 pupil all Irish Post Primary School
· An Institute of Further Education that will replace the existing PLC College and Theatre
· Sports Hall – to be shared by all education users on the campus
·The Garage Theatre building.
This project signals the increased involvement of VECs in the procurement and delivery of major building projects throughout Ireland and Co. Monaghan VEC has now proven that “it can be done” on-time and within budget. There are five new buildings on the campus.
The campus is heated by a district heating system operated from a centralised energy centre which contains 2 Schmid UTSK wood-chip boilers supplied by Imperative Energy Ltd. The state of the art boilers provide a sustainable and renewable solution to the provision of heat for all facilities on the campus. This will realise annual savings on heating costs in the order of 40% Imperative Energy Ltd has also been awarded the fuel supply and maintenance agreement for the energy centre.
Lancaster University is one of the leading universities in the world, having being ranked in the top 1% globally. The campus university is situated on 360 acres of parkland and has around 12,000 students .
The University has a deep academic appreciation of the environmental issues that face us all. That’s why reducing the energy they use and the carbon they generate was at the very heart of their decision to start using renewable energy resources. Hence, why Imperative Energy, which won “Best of BioEnergy” from the Global Cleantech Association was appointed to undertake the biomass boiler installation . In addition to this, energy savings from the project will help to ensure that available funds can be invested in providing high quality education and research.
Imperative Energy installed a Schmid 900kW UTSR biomass boiler with an innovative fuel handling system called a toploader to meet bulk handling needs. Commissioning was successfully completed in February
Imperative Energy in September 2012 opened up a new Regional Office in Perthshire, where Adam Baxendine, our new Sales Manager for Scotland will be based. Adam has joined us with a wealth of experience working within the Biomass industry. With an agriculture and forestry background he has a practical view when developing projects. When not thinking about Biomass he can be found renovating his house or being towed behind a speed boat on a wakeboard.
Imperative Energy will be attending the Greenbuild Expo in Manchester on 29th and 30th June 2011. Come and see us there!!
