201kW Commercial Biomass
Weigh Inn Hotel, Thurso - Case Study
Situated overlooking the Pentland Firth, with panoramic views of the Orkney Islands, The Weigh Inn Hotel is a busy hotel for people looking for somewhere to stay in the North of Scotland. Previously running on oil boilers to provide its heat and hot water, the hotel looked to find a more cost effective, carbon friendly solution.
After speaking to KORRIE, a replacement biomass boiler was selected. The new boiler and fuel store was installed in the existing plantroom and adjacent store room, with the old system kept as back up. The new system was interfaced with the old system through the use of a plate heat exchanger, causing minimal disruption to the running of the hotel. This resulted in greatly reduced fuel bills, whilst being eligible for Government Renewable Heat Incentive payments.
KORRIE installed a HERZ Firematic 201kW wood pellet boiler, along with a 4000L buffer tank that would further increase system efficiency by reducing the required run time on the boiler.
