OTTAWA, April 11 /CNW/ - Thermal Energy International Inc. (TSX-V: TMG)
(www.thermalenergy.com) ("Thermal Energy" or "the company") is pleased to announce that on
April 6th, 2011 it received a purchase order for £246 thousand (approximately CDN
$386 thousand) from Salisbury District Hospital Trust, a major hospital
in the south west of England, to install a combined heat and power
(CHP) exhaust stack condensing heat recovery system for use on its
heating and hot water system. The condensing heat recovery system is
expected to be installed and revenue earned over the next 20 weeks.
The purchase order was received following the successful supply and
installation of a GEM® condensate return system, also from Thermal
Energy, just one year earlier.
"This project will provide further energy savings to add to the energy
efficiency of the CHP system to be installed concurrently and overall
the carbon reduction expected from these projects will demonstrate a
high commitment by the Trust to improving the environment" commented
George Atkinson Head of Estates. "This is a very significant project
within the UK NHS and is evidence of Thermal Energy's continued
commitment to supporting the goals of the NHS in reducing their carbon
footprint," said Thermal Energy's President and CEO William Crossland.
About National Health Services
NHS is the publicly funded healthcare system in Great Britain. According
to its web site, the NHS is the largest single organization by
employment in Europe, employing 5 per cent of the UK workforce and
producing more than 18 million tonnes of CO2 per year - 3.2 per cent of
carbon emissions and 25 per cent of public sector emissions in England.
The NHS is the largest public sector contributor to climate change and
is working vigorously to reduce its energy consumption by 80% by 2050
against a baseline use in 2000, a legal limit set by the UK Government.
The NHS Sustainable Development 2011 - Delivering Transformational
Change Conference and Exhibition aimed to identify the progress to date
and define the challenges moving forward in creating a sustainable NHS
legacy for the future. This is set within the context of the current
regulatory framework and policy mandate for the UK under the
groundbreaking Climate Change, Planning and Energy Acts. Taken
together, these provide an action plan to secure a Low Carbon Future
and reduce carbon emissions by 10 per cent below 1990 levels by 2010,
34 per cent by 2020, and 80 per cent by 2050, according to govtoday.co.uk, an online resource for the public sector in the UK.
