Cochran Royal Warrant

Newbie Works, Annan, Dumfries & Galloway DG12 5QU Scotland


Foresterhill CHP Plant Supply

Project Type: Turnkey Projects   |  Client: Foresterhill   |   Location: Foresterhill Campus Energy Centre, Aberdeen


To design and install a CHP plant capable of generating 55,000kg/hour or 34 MW of heating steam to service the needs of the building forming the newly completed Foresterhill Health Campus Energy Centre.


Installation of a three Cochran Dual Fuel Boilers and one Waste Heat Recovery unit, working alongside an existing Gas Turbine and wood chip-fired Biomass Boiler.


The facility’s three Cochran boilers and a biomass boiler have enabled the Campus to be completely self-sufficient in terms of heating. It also generates 90% of its electricity requirement using a gas turbine. The Cochran Heat Recovery Boiler scavenges the exhaust heat of the turbine to generate additional ‘free’ steam.

Foresterhill Health Campus Energy Centre

Having previously supplied Aberdeen Royal Infirmary with steam boilers back in 1986, Cochran were contracted to provide the main steam generation equipment for the new Foresterhill Health Campus Energy Centre. Commissioned in June, the plant was operational by August 2012.

The energy centre provides heat in the form of steam to the Campus buildings. The facility combines a Biomass Boiler, installed by Cochran biomass partners Scot Heat & Power. This is fired with locally sourced woodchips generating 1.5MW. There are also three conventionally fired dual fuel Cochran Boilers and a Cochran Heat Recovery unit which generate a total of 34MW / 55,000kg/hour of steam.

Gas Turbine

The Foresterhill Energy Centre also features a Gas Turbine which generates 5.3MW, or around 90% of all the electricity required by the Campus. The exhaust heat generated by the turbine is captured using Cochran’s Heat Recovery Boiler which turns it into approximately 8.5MW of additional ‘free’ heating steam for the Campus.
