Roko Health Clubs Installing EuroSite CHP Units

October 17, 2012 By Paul Nastu

Four Roko Health Club sites in the UK have contracted EuroSite power to provide on-site utility solutions. The total contract value is about $10.7 million.

Under the 15-year agreement, EuroSite Power will install and operate combined heat and power (CHP) systems at each of the four health clubs. EuroSite will produce energy in the form of electricity, heating and domestic hot water for each health club at a price lower than that of the clubs’ current and future energy suppliers.

With EuroSite’s On-Site Utility solution, the clubs will pay only for the energy used and will avoid all capital, installation and operating costs. EuroSite Power will also handle all service, maintenance and repair. The four projects combined will produce about 6.6 GWh of total energy per year and save up to 694 tonnes of CO2 each year.

“We anticipate a material reduction in both our annual energy bill and CO2 production,” says Neil Stanton, Roko Health Clubs’ Operations Director. “Moreover, these improvements are made without capital outlay or financial risk to Roko Health Clubs. In addition, by displacing electricity consumption from the grid with generation from an on-site CHP unit we believe EuroSite Power’s solutions provide the opportunity to address some of the financial and administrative challenges posed by the CRC Energy Efficiency Scheme.”

Last month, the Wentworth Club in the United Kingdom signed an agreement to buy power from EuroSite Power.
