The Tulloch Caledonian Stadium is the home of the Scottish Premier League team Inverness Caledonian Thistle. Korrie were contracted to install a Korrie Energy Kabin and a new wet central heating system to provide renewable and low carbon space and water heating.
The main stand accommodates the clubs facilities including the reception, offices, hospitality & conference areas, kitchens, laundry as well as the players changing facilities. The heating was provided by electric convectors and infrared units. The Korrie Heating Kabin will provide all the heating and hot water requirements.
The Kabin is constructed using an insulated wooden frame on a steel base with larch cladding on the exterior. Once the Kabin was completed and the plant was installed inside, it was transported to site at the stadium. By constructing the Kabin at the Korrie yard, we reduce the amount of visits needed to site which reduces carbon emissions by transport by up to 50%. The Kabin will have a fuel store with a capacity of 8 tonnes with an automatic feeding system. This ensures a continual supply of heat to the stadium.
The main stand was built in 1996 and relied on electric radiators for all their heating needs. With electricity prices constantly rising, the board decided to opt for a new biomass Kabin along with a new wet heating system to provide renewable heat for the whole stadium. Since the change to biomass, the club can now heat the whole stadium with out worrying about the costs.

Facts & Benefits
199kW Biomass Energy Kabin
"We installed a biomass heating system at Tulloch Caledonian Stadium from Korrie Renewables in September 2013 to replace our existing electric warm air heat system. The new system provided heating and hot water over the winter, the running costs have been as forecast in the initial proposal.
Registration with the RHI Scheme was handled efficiently by Korrie and we have recently received our first payment, confirming that the running costs are indeed as forecast. The large reduction in our monthly electricity bills together with the reduced (net) heating costs has produced an overall saving for the Club."
