Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust

We were awarded preferred contractor after the Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust in conjunction with the Carbon Energy Fund tendered for an Innovation Partner to work with the Wythenshawe Hospital.

The hospital has a heat requirement of approximately 25GWhrs per annum which is expected to be fully served by a geothermal plant and the project team are currently working with the hospital and existing framework providers on the best approach to achieve this with the potential to supply to additional users in the area if initial estimates are validated. As Innovation Partner, we will carry out a full assessment of this heat potential of the subsurface leading through to plant and well design, applications for planning consents and securing of necessary permits for operation.

It is expected that, subject to a successful appraisal program, that heat might be available to the hospital as soon as 2027.
