Telford & Wrekin Council chooses Interseasonal Heat Transfer as the sustainable heating source for the exciting new developments in Wellington town centre. ICAX will provide renewable heating to the town centre development and swimming pool and renewable cooling to control summer temperatures.
On Wednesday 12 May 2010 the new Mayor of Wellington, Councillor Graham Riley, celebrated the start of the £8.5 million town centre redevelopment with a symbolic cutting of the turf with Telford & Wrekin Council's Cabinet Member for Regeneration and the main contractor.

Councillor Eric Carter, Cabinet Member for Regeneration, said: “I am delighted that we are now able to realise our vision for Wellington.
This plan is to regenerate the borough and provide a real boost for Wellington’s economy.
This is a significant investment in Wellington by Telford & Wrekin Council and will help bring many more people into the centre of Wellington and provide a boost for local traders.
Rationalising the Council’s offices in Wellington around this core site will also offer considerable savings in the long term.
We are also grasping this opportunity to enhance Wellington town centre and underline its importance as one of the key centres in this borough.”
Work is well under way with drilling of the first of 20 boreholes to create a ThermalBank to store solar energy from summer sunshine for use in winter to heat the building.

Wellington is expected to benefit from a cashback of around 8 pence per kilowatt hour of renewable heat used from the Renewable Heat Incentive. The revenues from the RHI are expected to be significant in relation to the annual running cost of heating the building - for 20 years.
