Cofely buys industrial energy network

Cofely, the energy efficiency services company of GDF SUEZ for businesses and local authorities, has completed the purchase of a large scale energy centre from Humber Energy Ltd in England for an undisclosed sum.

The energy centre includes gas-fired combined heat and power (CHP) and an associated industrial energy network. Together they are capable of supplying 48MW of electricity and in excess of 200 tonnes of steam to a major industrial park near Grimsby.

Cofely
Cofely have signed two new long-term Energy Service agreements for both heat and electricity with current users Lenzing Fibers, a leading global provider of man-made fibres and Bluestar Fibres, a multi-national carbon fibre precursor/oxidised fibre producer.

Further investment is planned by Cofely, which will assist network users with ongoing reductions in both energy costs and carbon footprint for the foreseeable future. Cofely will also implement their specialist Optimise TM energy management service to manage and reduce demand-side energy consumption at point of use.

Discussions are on-going with other potential connections with a view to expanding, and creating opportunities to further improve the efficiency of the network.

Paul Rawson, Managing Director of Cofely Industrial Energy Services, commented: "This acquisition is very significant for Cofely and further strengthens our presence within the energy intensive industry sector, whilst also aligning with our strategy of further expansion into large-scale industrial CHP. We are looking forward to working with users on the park to help them exploit opportunities for reducing carbon emissions, cutting production costs and complying with forthcoming legislative changes."
