This district heating system is being installed at
the time of writing, so more information and photos
will follow in due course.
The system will be operated by Charlie and
Andrea Walker who farm at Barnside. Woodchips will be provided
by Willie Dobie of Abbey St. Bathans Estate, the owner of the
system, from Abbey Timber sawmill.
This installation features one of our
custom built CompleteHeat
boiler rooms with a Veto
75 woodchip boiler coupled to an 8cum
Veto 8 woodchip silo.
How it will work
heating scheme will heat a traditional, stone built 4 bedroom farm
house and a separate terraced row of three cottages. The
properties will be heated by underground proprietary insulated
district heating pipe from the remote boiler room located 80m from
the farmhouse and 100m from the cottages.
will retain its own individual heating system and will be linked to
the district scheme by its own heat exchanger. Heat meters
will be installed in each property to monitor how much heat it uses
from the district scheme.
The silo will be filled with a front end
loader from a bulk chip store in an adjacent farm building.
Small diameter timber will be dried in the round on-site and chipped
into the bulk store at 3-6 month intervals.
