The customer required a large biomass heating system to provide heating for two large tenanted flats and a single, small, one bed flat on his farm near Caenby Corner in Lincolnshire. With the additional capacity, a district heating main was run from the boiler buffer tank to provide heating to a workshop and then on to the dairy wash down unit.
The flats were originally heated by electric storage heaters, these were removed and a full radiator wet system was installed by J L Phillips Renewable Energy as part of the project.
Wood chip was the main fuel source so the boiler was set up to accept woodchip supplied by the customer from his own stock. A pellet system was also installed to enable the use of pellets if the need arose. Each of the flats were metered to enable the tenants to monitor their heating usage and for RHI requirements. The workshop heating and the dairy water heating was also metered for RHI and Ofgem requirements.
The installation of the boiler and buffer tank along with heat meters and controls to each area took just two weeks to install, with the radiator system taking a further two weeks. Now up and running, the feedback from the tenants is very positive, where once they were always trying to cut down on their heating, they now have an excellent efficient and cost effective heating system which heats their old Victorian building up to levels they have never before achieved.
With an estimated heating demand of 125,000kWh per year, the customer will benefit from £7,489.80 in RHI payments per year for 20 years rising each year with RPI, plus a significant £8,750.00 saving in the cost of the displaced fuel oil and direct electric heating. Following the success of this installation, the customer has invited J L Phillips to assess and evaluate further projects on his Farm and other properties.
