Wandsworth Riverside Quarter, one of our innovative landmark district heating schemes, comprises 550 residential units together which consists of six blocks and a further 2,773 m2 of commercial space.
SSE worked with IFTech, a geothermal/heat extraction expert, to design an Aquifier Thermal Energy System (ATES). This is a highly innovative, integrated energy system which combines open loop ground source heat pumps in combination with gas CHP to provide low carbon heat, hot water, cooling and electricity all under the control of SSE’s ESCo team.
SSE has worked with the client team throughout the construction process, bringing our many years’ experience, to ensure that commissioning of new phases can occur whilst the performance and integrity of the live network is protected. This is a complex exercise and a common challenge for multi phase developments.
