Surrey Farm Replace LPG with Biomass to Reduce Costs and Emissions.
Tuesley Farm, in Surrey, is one of Hall Hunter Partnership’s largest sites, covering 469 acres. The site already has 177kW of solar PV installed on it, providing them with clean, green electrical energy to help grow the fresh berries the farm is known for.This Biomass installation will supply two cottages, the farmhouse, the swimming pool and underfloor heating with hot water. The new wood chip Biomass boiler replaces an ageing LPG boiler. By taking this step not only will HHP reduce their impact on the environment, but will also lower the cost of heating the buildings on the site. HHP also believe that by promoting green technologies, their farms will possess a USP when compared with the competition.
Biomass is classified as a carbon-neutral renewable technology. This is because of the ‘Closed Carbon Cycle’. This means that no more carbon dioxide is released into the atmosphere than is absorbed by the replacement tree.
Biomass Boiler System Design
The installation at Tuesley Farm in Surrey consists of an ETA 199kW biomass boiler linked to 3 x 2200 litre buffer tanks. The boiler is fed from the 15 tonne fuel store located next to the plant room. A screw auger transports chip to the boiler where it is burnt at high temperatures.
District Heating System
The biomass heating system was designed to heat a number of properties on the farm including the owners farm house and swimming pool and a number of different houses and staff accommodation on the farm. Provisions have also been installed which will allow further circuits at a later date if required.
Heating System Design & Installation
The Greener Group carried out all aspects of the design, supply, installation and commissioning of this biomass boiler installation. If you have an energy or heating installation project contact us to discuss your requirements.
