"We are delighted on our appointment to design and build BMS systems for the world-leading Keadby 2 project."
Simon Shaw, Project Director at BGES

Keadby 2 is expected to become the cleanest and most-efficient gas-fired power station in Europe, enabling the UK to move away from coal in the 2020s and to integrate more renewables into the power grid. It will also be capable of being upgraded to further decarbonise its generation through carbon capture or hydrogen technology, as routes to market develop. When completed, the power station will provide electricity to up to 840,000 homes and businesses in the UK.

Siemens Energy is the principle contractor delivering the power station, with specialist HVAC company Exyte Hargreaves supporting the delivery of mechanical and electrical / HVAC within five buildings on the site. BGES has been appointed to design the building management systems, which will be commissioned in spring 2021. 

BGES is one of the UK’s leading BMS and energy solutions companies, with roots dating back to 1995. The company has offices in Sheffield and London and is known for its unique approach to customer challenges, using class-leading technologies. BGES is a member of the Engineering Construction Industry Association and adheres to the NAECI framework (the National Agreement for the Engineering Construction Industry).

Adrian Woodhead, Project Lead at Exyte Hargreaves said:

“As a committed and responsible member of Britain’s Energy Cluster we are delighted with this appointment. Our delivery build methodology incorporates the use of our MMC Offsite Assembly Facility to supply horizontal modules, vertical risers and a prefabricated plant room, housing the centric energy centre and heating distribution for the whole facility.”

Simon Shaw, Project Director at BGES said:

“We are delighted on our appointment to design and build BMS systems for the world-leading Keadby 2 project. In doing so we’re proud to play our part in delivering a future-ready power station that will help the UK transition to a net zero energy system.”

Commercial operation of Keadby 2 is scheduled for 2022 as coal power plant closures come into effect.
