Hartpury College campus covers 360 hectares and is a residential learning hub to 1300 students. By switching to biomass technology the college will save a predicted 400,000kg of carbon per year, in a bid to reduce its annual £800,000 energy bill whilst receiving Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) payments of just under £80,000 per year.
The project required a solution to supply heat and hot water to the accommodation, kitchen and Further Education buildings.
Euroheat installed four prefabricated Energy Cabins, each containing a 199kW HDG Compact wood pellet boiler, integrated 14 tonne pellet store and 4000 litre accumulator.
As a result, the campus will save over 150,000 litres of oil previously used on-site, replacing it with an estimated 300 tonnes of wood pellets used by the compact wood pellet boiler.
Completed in December 2014, Euroheat were identified as the best supplier for the project by Steve Luker Associates, consultant for the project, who was impressed with the swift, problem-free installation.
He said: The part of the campus now benefiting from biomass previously cost some £143,000 per year to heating, so taking into account previous fuel costs, we can say that it is hoped that savings will amount to over £100,000 a year when lower cost fuel is combined with the RHI.
Obviously exact figures will be monitored closely over the next year.
