EN-Projects was awarded the contracts to modernise the rehabilitation departments of the Shaoxing People’s Hospital in Zhejiang Province and the Affilitate Zhongshan Hospital of Dalian University in Liaoning Province, with funding from the Netherlands Government Package4Growth programme. Both projects included a sustainable / renewable energy programme.

The sustainable energy programmes aimed to develop renewable energy packages to generate energy on-site, which would compensate for the energy consumption of the equipment delivered by EN-Projects. A detailed energy audit was carried out to estimate the energy use of the new equipment. A variety of renewable energy options to compensate for the energy use of the equipment were considered. Following detailed evaluation, a solar thermal system was deemed the most suitable system for both hospitals. The solar thermal system has been implemented successfully at the Shaoxing People’s Hospital, with work ongoing at the Affilitate Zhongshan Hospital of Dalian University.
