Both staff and pupils are very pleased that we are now more environmentally friendly in the way we heat our building.

100 kW wood chip boiler with spring-agitator fuel-out feeder and accumulator heat storage capacity.
Packaged system with boiler room (containing pre-plumbed and pre-wired boiler ) and integral fuel store built within modified container.
HWEnergy provided the 100kW wood chip system as a 'packaged' system, constructed off site and craned on to a concrete pad outside the school building. Once a system like this has been delivered it is a quick process to connect up the heating pipes and mains power and water supply before commissioning the system, therefore ensuring minimum disruption on site.
Connection was made into the existing boiler room via heat exchanger, with the existing Building Management System control panel modified to provide the control integration. The packaged system consists of a modified container, comprising a boiler room, and a partitioned fuel store. The blower connections and electric opening roof enable the fuel store to be filled either by blower vehicle or high lift trailer. The system can operate on wood chip or wood pellet fuel and can be fitted out to include additional heating plant such as heat meter, pumps and standby boiler as required.
The boiler installed in a very high specification 100kW Froeling 'Turbomatic' boiler complete with auto ignition and auto heat exchange cleaning. The boiler is installed in conjunction with a heat storage accumulator tank which provides a storage 'buffer' for peak load heating times , and reduces boiler 'short cycling during periods of low heating load. These features combine to ensure operating efficiencies of over 90% and minimal routine maintenance, which is limited to emptying the sealed ash containers approximately every fortnight.
HWEnergy provide Inverlochy Primary with a comprehensive service and support package. This ensures all technical servicing is completed routinely and the client is provided with responsive remote and on-site technical support as required.
