Biomass district heating system

A full feasibility study was carried out for a biomass district heating system for a large country house and nearby offices.

The study included:

  • Assessment of existing heating systems
  • Outline system design
  • Selection of possible heat distribution, boiler and fuel store equipment
  • Financial comparison of potential system design options

Biomass resource assessment

When completed, the study showed that there would only be a low to moderate return on financial investment; however due to rising fossil fuel costs, generous grant funding and a pro-active client the project was subsequently constructed.
