We felt that biomass heating was another way forward to help reduce running costs for the company. We found that HWEnergy were very good to deal with, they were very informative at the early stages and we managed to work hand in hand with them with some of the civils work needed. We are very pleased with the systems as a whole, especially the running costs. As a result of this it is now our intention to expand biomass involvement further throughout the business.
Allan Campbell, Director of Argyll Holidays
2 x high specification 320kW biomass boiler projects serving 2 very different holidays villages. Underground fuel stores allow easy delivery. Underground pipe transfers heat to a variety of buildings.
A complete solution
HWEnergy took the project from design stage all the way through to completion and now manage the ongoing supply of heat to Argyll Holidays. The projects involved the design, supply and installation of the system including linking up with a variety of existing boiler rooms. The client undertook the civil engineering works with support from HWEnergy. The controls have been mollified to ensure that the biomass boiler delivers as much of the heat load as possible with the existing oil boilers being retained to provide peak load and back up heating when required.
Heat Supply – Hassle-free heating
On an ongoing basis, Argyll Holiday purchase ‘heat’ from HWEnergy. The heat supply contract includes all elements required to make the project a success and minimise the input required from the clients. This includes fuel, routine maintenance, technical servicing and boiler ‘MOT’, troubleshooting and annual management and performance reports. Performance guarantees are built into the contract so that if the system is not deliver heat then Argyll Holidays receives financial recompense. This approach minimised the risk and the time input for Argyll Holidays and ensured a single point of accountability for all aspects of the system performance.
