PROJECT HIGHLIGHTS

This study investigated the feasibility of a Quibble Creek Energy Plant to service developments in Surrey’s King George node, using a hot water piping system to provide heating service to buildings in the city centre.

The proposed facility would house natural gas boilers and associated plant infrastructure on a 13,000 sq.ft. site to provide thermal energy distribution piping system to serve the City of Surrey District Energy Grid.

Further, the City wanted to explore using the Quibble Creek Plant site for a temporary boiler installation which would remain open during construction of the permanent Quibble Creek Plant.

Our scope of work included:

  • Assessing design and site scenarios for the proposed permanent plant;
  • Assessing using the Quibble Creek Plant site for a temporary boiler plant.
  • Developing a preliminary design based on the preferred scenario for the plant (and potentially temporary boiler plant)
