• Mace Selects Natural Gas-Fired Distributed Power Technology from GE and Clarke Energy to Provide Power and Heat to the Nova Development in London’s Victoria Area;
• CHP System to Supply Nearly 3 Megawatts for Land Securities’ Nova Redevelopment Project, Enough to Power More than 5,700 Standard U.K. Homes.

The engines will provide environmentally friendlier, more sustainable power and heat for the first phase of the £380 million Nova, Victoria, redevelopment project, an area of London previously known as Victoria Circle.

Land Securities are transforming the area by providing new high-quality apartments, restaurants and modern offices. The first phase of the project, overseen by Mace, will include three new buildings and landscaped public space, and in keeping with the project’s environmental sustainability goals, GE’s Jenbacher units will run a combined heat and power (CHP) configuration to generate 2.96 megawatts (MW) for the area enough electricity to power more than 5,700 standard U.K. homes. CHP offers greater carbon savings compared to traditional heating and grid-based power, and excess heat from the engines will be used to help heat the Nova buildings.

Once operational in 2016, the CHP configuration will power the on-site Energy Centre, export electricity to the grid and provide heat to Nova residents and businesses as well as reduce carbon emissions. Based on 8,000 operating hours per year, the ecomagination qualified Jenbacher gas engines are expected to offset more than 6,500 tons of carbon dioxide.

“We are delighted that Mace has chosen Clarke Energy as a collaborator once again to work on a redevelopment project in London. Improving the energy efficiency of Nova, Victoria, will prove to be a great step forward for the capital city’s energy consumption,” Clarke Energy CEO Jamie Clarke said.

The Nova CHP project reunites Mace with Clarke Energy and GE. Clark Energy is an authorized distributor of GE’s Jenbacher gas engines in many regions throughout the world, including the U.K. The companies previously collaborated on The Shard tower CHP project in London, where similar Jenbacher technology provides highly efficient on-site power and heat for the tallest building in the European Union and second tallest, free-standing structure in the U.K.

Mace’s project director at Nova, Tony Palgrave, said,“Having already worked with Clarke Energy on The Shard, we know they are a reliable partner. Working together, we are proud of the ways in which we are helping to lower carbon emissions, as this ultimately helps London to become a more sustainable city. Clarke Energy has extensive knowledge and experience in providing high-efficiency CHP solutions across a number of applications and their passion in this area is great to be a part of.”

“We are excited to once again work with Clarke Energy to support Mace’s latest energy efficiency project in London with the Nova CHP redevelopment,” said Karl Wetzlmayer, general manager reciprocating engines for GE Power & Water’s Distributed Power. “From the 2012 London Olympic and Paralympic Games to the city’s hospitals and other industrial facilities, GE’s is providing U.K businesses and residents with reliable supplies of on-site power while supporting the government’s commitment to reducing industrial emissions.”

Commissioning of the plant is not expected before the end of 2016, in line with completion of the first phase of the Nova redevelopment project. GE’s gas engines offer an electrical efficiency of 41.5 percent and a thermal efficiency of 45.5 percent by recovering hot water from the engine jacket, lube oil circuit, intercooler and exhaust gases providing a total CHP efficiency of 87 percent for industry-leading efficiency.
