Solar Power at NHS Health Centre

GES Mechanical UK Ltd has provided Doncaster’s new NHS health centre with two solar power renewable energy systems.

The Doncaster based renewable energy provider has installed a 1.29 Kwp solar PV system and a solar thermal system that equates to 9.69m2 on the roof of the landmark building in the heart of Doncaster town centre.

Standing five floors high at the corner of Trafford Way and St. Sepulchre Gate, the Flying Scotsman Centre rises above the traffic close to the interchange and railway station.

The centre was built through the Local Improvement Finance Trust (LIFT), and has been designed to be light and welcoming with strong green credentials. The centre opened last autumn and provides top quality accommodation for Doncaster’s health centre, and is open throughout the year.

Marcus Payne, managing director of GES Mechanical, said: “We have provided the Flying Scotsman Centre with two sustainable solar power systems that will generate the NHS an income through the government’s generous feed in tariff.

“Another positive is that the centre’s gas and electric bills will be significantly lower thanks to these renewable energy technologies

“We were delighted to work on this prestigious project and we hope the centre proves to be a success for the residents of Doncaster.”
