A new energy centre will open in Grantham and District Hospital to improve heating and hot water facilities in the building.
Lord Lieutenant of Lincolnshire, Toby Dennis will open the hospital’s new energy centre on Friday, October 7 at 2.30pm.
The efficient energy centre will provide the hospital with improved heating and hot water facilities following works that involved the replacement of temporary boilers with three new condensing boilers and the laying of new pipework around the hospital.
This £650,000 investment coincides with the launch of United Lincolnshire Hospitals NHS Trust’s Sustainable Development Management Plan (SDMP) which outlines how the Trust is working towards being even more sustainable and energy efficient.
The Trust reduced its carbon footprint by 13% from 2010 to 2015, compared to the national target of 10% for NHS organisations.
Paul Boocock, Director of Estates and Facilities at ULHT said: “This is an exciting step forward for us in providing our services more efficiently and at reduced cost and is a significant investment in Grantham hospital.
“We have much more work planned in the future and this is a key milestone on our sustainability journey.”
Kier partnership director, Dan Maher, said: “The new energy centre will help support the hospital in meeting energy targets and reducing running costs, as well as providing an improved and efficient heating and hot water service to the hospital and service users.”
