ABOUT THE PROJECT
Cardinia Life Aquatic Centre, located in Pakenham Victoria, is receiving a 2G Patruus 140kW Natural Gas cogeneration unit which will see the centre generate electricity and heat to power the Aquatic Centre, as well as heating their pools and air. Evo ET's technology will save the council significantly on environmental costs and greatly reduce their environmental footprint.
Location: Cardinia Life Aquatic Centre, VIC
Client: Cardinia Shire Council
- 2G Patruus 140kW Natural Gas unit
Cardinia Life is the premier health and recreational facility in the Cardinia district of Victoria. The facility was also responsible for a large portion of the district's greenhouse gas emissions. To mitigate against this, the Cardinia Shire Council engaged Evo Energy Technologies to provision a cogeneration plant and to upgrade their facilities for maximum energy efficiency and cost savings.
In 2017, the leisure centre was responsible for 24% of the Council's operational carbon emissions and 1684 tonnes of carbon dioxide. When the cogeneration unit is operational, significant yearly savings in energy costs and associated reductions of greenhouse gas emissions are to be expected for the council!
The 2G Patruus Natural Gas unit is replacing an older unit to provide better and more efficient and effective service than the original unit. EvoET's cogeneration solution will see the council save massively on their energy costs, and by reducing the operational cost of the facility, the Council reduces costs to ratepayers while also significantly reducing the centre's carbon emissions.
