The Merchant in Belfast has signed a contract which will see Electric Ireland powering the five-star luxury city centre hotel.

The new contract, which is worth £228,000, will see Electric Ireland providing the popular city centre spot with both its gas and electricity.

Owned by Bill Wolsey's Beannchor Group, The Merchant is one of Belfast's oldest grade A listed buildings, dating back to 1857, and is formerly the headquarters of Ulster Bank.

Kevin Reilly, group procurement manager of Beannchor Group, said: "To help enhance and grow our businesses it is vital that we have an energy supplier that can support all of our needs and is able to provide us with a flexible and competitive energy offering.

"In Electric Ireland we have that trusted supplier."

And Electric Ireland's business markets manager Tony Dunlea said: "Electric Ireland has a long and established presence of providing flexible and targeted products and services for businesses across Northern Ireland and our team has a deep understanding of the bespoke needs and challenges of all industry sectors.

"It is those insights, the ability to adapt and our competitive approach that supports our strategy."
