The Queens Quay Heat Pump Project

The water source heat pump project (WSHP) we delivered at Queens Quay (is at the forefront of an exciting new chapter of Scotland’s heating infrastructure and is the UK’s first major WSHP project of its type.  The scheme comprised of an energy centre housing two x 2.65MW water source heat pumps, a 130,000 litre thermal store and back up gas boilers which adds resilience and contributes towards the 20MW peak demand.   The heat pumps and thermal store are capable of delivering approximately 82% of the peak demand at final development build-out and in early years will provide greater than 95% of the heat demand.
