2 x 100kW Biomass Kabin
UHI Portree - Case Study
The University of the Highland & Islands Campus in Portree has undergone a refurbishment and a new extension. Opened in September 2013, the campus is heated using a biomass system constructed by Korrie Renewables.
The Kabin was designed and built in Inverness and transported to the site. This reduced the requirement to visit the site which was 160 miles away by 50%. It also enables the Kabin to be built in a controlled and safe environment while reducing disruption on site.
The Kabin contained two Herz Firematic 100kW boilers. This allows more flexibility in the amount of heat generated, which makes it more efficient. These are automatically fed from the purpose built fuel store which has a capacity of 12 tonnes. All heat produced is stored in two buffer tanks with a combined capacity of 3000 litres.
This new biomass system provides much lower costs compared to oil, which would have been used if biomass was not selected. The system will also be eligible for the Government's RHI Scheme which will pay UHI for each unit of heat they use from the new system.
