Blackpool Teaching Hospital NHS Foundation Trust – Salix Funded Replacement of Heating Plant Equipment
The energy and sustainability team at AA Projects provided advice and guidance to Blackpool Teaching Hospital NHS Foundation Trust in relation to the replacement of outdated heating plant equipment. The aim was to secure more energy efficient plate heat exchangers saving in energy costs and reducing carbon emissions, working to provide a safer working environment and increasing patient comfort.
A Salix interest-free loan was secured providing £476,586 of funding for the project, providing a safe, low-risk finance option and the upfront capital for an energy efficient project. Once the loan is repaid, it will enable the energy savings to be reinvested into the Foundation Trust’s estate.
