Ardmore has awarded Vital Energi with the contract to provide the energy solution for the £170 million mixed-use residential-led Ram Quarter Development. This will be Vital Energi’s sixth collaboration with Ardmore, with previous successes including the Limehouse Basin development and the City Road Tower in Islington.
Vital will be working with Ardmore’s professional team to supply and install the new low-carbon energy centre which will house two 229kW combined heat and power engines, two 25,000 litre thermal stores, four 963kW boilers, with the capacity to add a fifth, and two 1MW chillers.
Vital Energi will also be installing the hydraulic interface units, risers and laterals, and heating and cooling meters for the development, Phase One of which will see the creation of 338 apartments and a variety of commercial units too.
Rob Callaghan, Regional Director for Vital Energi commented, “This is a development which is rich in heritage and history and we are delighted to be delivering a 21st century low-carbon energy solution. This project also marks the sixth time we have partnered with Ardmore and we are happy to be continuing our relationship on another great project.”
The former Ram Brewery in Wandsworth has a continuous history as a brewing site dating back almost 500 years, and is being developed by the Chinese investment company Greenland Group. In addition to the residential buildings, the development will also create new public spaces, shops, restaurants, cafés, a microbrewery and a heritage centre to celebrate the site’s history.
