DTGen has been appointed to supply and install the standby power solution at the state-of-the-art Co-op Live stadium in Manchester, the UK’s first purpose-driven arena.
The 1250 kVA generator will be installed along with a 75 dBA acoustic enclosure at the site which is due to start hosting events during 2023.
Chris Connors, Head of Sales (South) at DTGen, said: “We’ve been working across the Midlands and Northern England for many years, but it’s really encouraging to see development work in Manchester thriving.
“Our competence in system design for high profile projects puts us in a competitive position to deliver a wide range of power solutions to clients throughout the UK, and we’re excited to be involved in the Co-op Live project.”
The Co-op Live arena will be a world-class venue that will host international music, sport, charity and business events, and create more than 4,000 new jobs. It will be a sustainable and socially responsible venue, creating zero waste, extremely low emissions and generating £1m a year for community causes.
To deliver the venue, Co-op has joined forces with the global recording artist Harry Styles and Oak View Group (OVG) to develop one of the most socially responsible venues in Europe; joining Manchester’s zero-carbon agenda and tackling food poverty with its food redistribution programme. Rooted in the Co-op’s ethical, community-focused values, it expects the arena to generate around £1m each year for Co-op Foundation causes.
In recent years, DTGen has secured new contracts for a range of new infrastructure projects in and around Manchester including the standby power solutions for the New Baily mixed-use development, all seven plots at the city’s intriguing neighbourhood development, Circle Square; the high-profile office building, One Piccadilly Gardens in central Manchester, Manchester Airport; the award-winning leisure and work complex, Stockport Exchange; the iconic CIS Tower; the 20-acre NOMA project including Angel Gardens; and RBS in Southport.
