Contracted by Wolseley UK Ltd once again, Utile designed and built a duty/standby natural gas booster package to supply elevated gas pressure to feed the Kitchen equipment, Hot Water Boilers and CHP plant recently installed at the New US Embassy building in London. Using their Utile 90 series multistage, centrifugal gas boosters, Natural Gas at a flow rate of 680Sm3/hr was boosted up to 280mbarg using 11.0kW WEG, Safe Area IE2 motors.

Due to plant room space restrictions, a bespoke design was employed to minimise the footprint and ensure manifold connects were accurately positioned for local connections. The Utile ‘Smartdrive’ control system was installed with ABB inverters to maintain precise discharge pressure whilst operating at the lowest speed possible, thus reducing the absorbed power to a minimum.
