In addition to designing and installing the energy infrastructure behind one of Europe's largest developments Vital Energi is also undertaking the 25-year operation and maintenance contract which ensures the system performs as expected with the minimum amount of down time.
Vital Energi have over a decade of experience in contributing to the King’s Cross development infrastructure. As the site has evolved, we have created numerous solutions including the district heating and cooling networks, temporary and permanent energy centres and the ground-breaking cooling solution. The primary assets under our responsibility now include:
Our operations and maintenance contracts essentially see us responsible for the entire heating, cooling and electrical generation for the development.
At King’s Cross we had a team of three engineers and a contracts manager who oversaw all works. We had an engineering presence on-site 24 hours per day from Monday-Friday and on-call engineers to respond to issues over the weekend within a timescale agreed with the client. This team delivered all scheduled, preventative maintenance as well as reactive maintenance whilst ensuring legislative compliance.
Additionally, as part of the O&M contract we provided comprehensive reporting to the client so that they have a detailed overview of how the energy solution is performing.
