This is the first time this technology, developed by SHARC Energy Systems, will be deployed in the UK.
The pilot project will see heat extracted from waste water intercepted from Scottish Water’s Galashiels network. The heat will then be sold to Borders College under a 20-year purchase agreement resulting in energy and cost savings and a reduction in carbon emissions.
Installation of the system is scheduled to start later this month and completion is expected by the end of the summer. The work will be carried out with no disruptions to normal operations.
Borders College will be the first to benefit after agreement reached with Scottish Water.
