Essentia’s award-winning sustainability team supported Barts Health NHS Trust to procure an operations and maintenance Energy Performance Contract (EPC) which delivers 20% carbon savings and a fully managed energy service with a 1.45-year payback.
The client wished to establish a managed service contract for the operation and maintenance of its central boiler house and associated plant, including a water bore hole. The Trust sought to connect the installed, but unused, combined heat and power engine to a newly upgraded high voltage system.
The Trust intended to deliver financial and carbon savings, outsource servicing and billing, maximise existing assets, improve business continuity and reduce the cost of ongoing backlog maintenance.
Essentia’s flexible energy performance contract (EPC) framework and contract documentation provided Whipps Cross with a clear, simple and streamlined process to establish an operations and maintenance contract for its energy infrastructure, which also delivered guaranteed savings.
The Essentia team understood the key drivers and ensured the supply chain was fully briefed to deliver the highest quality submissions for evaluation. Essentia provided fit for purpose contract documentation and partnered with the client and supply chain to ensure smooth and efficient delivery of the project.
Whipps Cross appointed Engie to deliver the project, which delivers a 20% carbon saving and pays back in 1.45 years. The Trust also achieves guaranteed energy and maintenance cost savings of over £600k per annum.
