Atkins to deliver geothermal heating for Stoke

Stoke on Trent City Council (SCC) has appointed Atkins to undertake consultancy work for a geothermally powered district heating network for the city.

Atkins will work with SCC to plan the network with £19.75M of funds provided for the pipe network infrastructure by central government.

The system will be powered by geothermal heat sources from 350M year old rock deposits located at a depth of 3km below the city.

Atkins will assist SCC with identifying potential heat customers, confirming the heat demand including connection to buildings, pipework entry routes, physical plantroom space, controls integration and secondary heating circuit operating conditions.

“We’re looking helping develop what will be one of the largest and most carbon efficient heat networks in the UK,” said Atkins power division senior renewables engineer Steve Cowan. “Not only will the Stoke heat network help to reduce emissions and alleviate fuel poverty but it will also help to drive social and economic regeneration.”
