Second CHP powers new greenhouses at Frank Rudd & Sons

Last updated: 4th March 2024

Tomato producers Frank Rudd & Sons tap Centrica Business Solutions for second time, to power their new greenhouses.

Expanding a Proven Partnership

Centrica Business Solutions originally partnered with Frank Rudd & Sons in 2017 to install a new Combined Heat and Power (CHP) unit to power their operations. When Frank Rudd & Sons began to expand their greenhouses in 2023, they needed to install a second CHP to meet their increased demand.

We designed and installed a turnkey 1.5MW CHP system to power their production processes. The CHP generates heat and carbon dioxide, which are both fed into their greenhouses and are vital components to the growing process. The system also generates electricity, which Frank Rudd & Sons sells back to the grid through an export agreement – giving the business a significant ongoing revenue stream.
