Case Study 2: Staythorpe Power Station

Coolstream Ventilation joined hundreds of sub-contractors at Staythorpe Power Station at Newark in Nottinghamshire to carry out a large scale installation project.

A total of 20 air conditioning systems were installed by the air conditioning and ventilation company at the £600m plant which is set to be the second largest combined cycle gas turbine (CCGT) power station in the UK.

Working for an Italian consortium, Coolstream Ventilation installed four systems in the water treatment building, two in each of the four electrical buildings and two in each of the four chemical dosing buildings.

The air conditioning systems were Ascon models manufactured in Italy. Coolstream Ventilation installed the refrigeration pipework to connect the indoor models to their associated outdoor units.

The lengths of the pipework ranged from 10 metres to 20 metres with some of the units being installed high up in the roof space of some of the buildings. Condensing units were positioned on the building walls externally with the exception of the water treatment building where the units were sited in the main internal space.

The installation project was challenging and intermittent as it involved working with numerous contractors with workforces of different nationalities, each with their own projects, timescales and policies to adhere to. Work started in November 2009 and was completed by the end of 2010.

Staythorpe Power Station will be a compact industrial facility located on a brownfield site that housed two previous coal stations. Once completed, the power station will produce enough power to cater for around two million homes. It will reduce average annual CO2 emissions by up to 7.5 million tonnes compared to an existing coal-fired power station producing the same amount of electricity.
