The University of Bristol (UoB) wishes to upgrade the burners in a number of our large boilers as part of the Carbon Management Plan. The prime objective of the project is to reduce energy spend and carbon emissions.
Savings are expected to be achieved by using equipment with best in class combustion efficiency, by more accurately matching the burner output to the boiler capacities and building loads, and by dynamically changing the boiler flow temperatures to take account of the availability of external heat sources such as Combined Heat and Power Units and District Heat.
Equipment that does not meet all of these criteria which are described in the full specification in greater detail will not be considered.
This contract is for the supply and installation of natural gas burners.
UoB have an initial programme of replacements as laid out in the full specification and intend to consider further works as sites are identified and the success or otherwise of the initial programme is known.
UoB has a networked TREND BMS system which it intends to use to provide time and status functions and receive alarms etc. The equipment will need to interface with the BMS by means of an serial communications protocol. Final connection to the TREND equipment and TREND software changes are not part of this contract.
