Sunamp is preparing a landmark project with the UK's Bristol City Council that will see the company take excess heat from waste treatment facilities by barge to be used in the city’s district heating scheme.

Speaking to Clean Energy Today at SEUK|CEL 2016, Andrew Trewin, product sales specialist for Sunamp, said the company has been in discussions with the local authority for months and is currently in the process of applying for funding from Innovate UK.

If successful, the scheme will see Sunamp extract heat from waste processes in Avonmouth and ‘containerise’ it in up to 16 shipping container-sized units, each carting 2MWh of heat storage in its phase change technology.

Trewin explained that the company would then transport up to 32 containers carrying 64MWh of stored heat by barge to the city’s district heat scheme, which is currently under construction to move away from gas.

The project is currently working through the first stage of applying for funding, with Sunamp having all but completed the feasibility requirements of the scheme. Once funding is secured, the company will carry out an intensive three month trial before the project is taken forward.
