RAF Museum Cosford in Shropshire is looking forward to an annual reduction in energy costs of £25,000 after installing an energy management system from Vickers Energy to optimise heating in two of the three hangars used to house the museum’s collection of 70 aircraft.
The new contract follows the successful implementation of a Vickers Energy management system to regulate the heating in its largest
hangar, which has already enabled the Museum to reduce gas consumption by 28%, leading to savings of £14,000 per annum. Implementing an energy management system in the other two hangars is expected to reduce annual heating bills by an additional £9,500.
RAF Museum Cosford, which attracts 300,000 visitors every year, boasts the world’s oldest Spitfire and a Lincoln Bomber.
The system was supplied by Vickers Electronics
