Imtech realises environment-friendly power plant for Amsterdam Academic Medical Centre


Gouda, the Netherlands - Imtech (technical services provider in Europe) announces that it has been commissioned by the Housing Directorate of the AMC, the Academic Medical Centre of the University of Amsterdam, to provide all technological solutions for the renovation and expansion of their power plant. The order represents a value of about 26.5 million euro.

The new power plant will consist of a sophisticated heat and power system consisting of three gas engines of each 4 MWe. This means the combined generation of heat and electricity (power) with a high efficiency. The residual energy will be used for heating the AMC buildings among other things. With this environment-friendly approach energy savings of about 20% are realised. Also the CO2 emission will be reduced more than 30%. The new combined heat and power plant will also serve as emergency generator, a crucial function in the hospital. In case of a power failure, all the activities in the hospital, including crucial facilities such as operating rooms, can continue uninterruptedly.

Total technological solution
The project will be carried out by Imtech Nederland. In addition to the combined heat and power technology, Imtech will also be responsible for the emergency power facilities and for all electrical and mechanical solutions and other systems related to the environment-friendly energy production. Entirely in line with the Imtech philosophy, a total solution from a single point responsibility approach is provided. DWA energie- en installatieadvies (DWA energy and installation consultancy) acts as advisor for the client. The scheduled completion of the project is the end of October 2011.

Successful in ’energy & environment’ market
Imtech occupies an increasingly prominent position in the fast-growing European ‘energy & environment’ markets and is active with a wide range of activities. These vary from ‘green’ revitalisation of buildings and numerous energy saving technical solutions to sustainable exploration of energy sources and generation of sustainable energy. These activities also include lower emissions of environmentally-harmful (greenhouse) gases, reduction of emissions of fine particles and the achievement of clean drinking water and treatment of waste water. These activities accounted in 2008 for 960 million euro, which is 25% of Imtech’s total revenue of more than 3.8 billion euro. The strategy of Imtech is focussed on further strengthening this prominent position.
