Background

Hay House is a family- owned and run nursing home specialising in the care of people with dementia and other mental health conditions.

Resident comfort is a priority for the owners, who were expecting large heating bills from the three old and inefficient oil boilers they were using to heat this Grade II listed building.

 

The Requirement

In partnership with Rainbow Heat and Power & Wye Valley Energy, we won a competitive tender for the supply and installation of a 150kw Linder & Sommerauer biomass boiler which would need to run on EN Plus grade wood pellets.

Two 2,000 litre buffer stores, all associated fitting accessories and a wood pellet fuel suction system were also included. As part of the project, we also managed Hay House’s RHI application.

 

Complete Biomass District Heating Package

We installed the boiler, fuel delivery system and buffer tank in the plantroom as well as the heat main to connect the main farm house.

 

The Renewable Heat Incentive

A project this size would expect to receive RHI Payments of approximately £17,345 every year for 20 years, index linked to inflation.

They would also expect to gain a fuel cost saving of approximately £3,500 per annum. The fuel cost saving will deliver a payback on the capital cost in 4-5 years.
