Atlantic Boilers has commissioned two electric boilers at Iona Abbey on the Isle of Iona off the west coast of Scotland. The work was part of a programme of renewing engineering installations in a number of historic buildings in Scotland to reduce carbon emissions, including Edinburgh Castle and Stirling Castle.

Iona Abbey was founded by St Columbus in 563 and was a celebrated focus for Christian pilgrimage. It now welcomes up to 50 guests a week and thousands of pilgrims every day during the summer.

Ongoing work on re-establishing the living accommodation has now seen the boiler room being refurbished. Two Atlantic 90 kW Multi-elec boilers are the first stage in replacing four old boilers. It is intended to add a sea- or ground-source heat pumps later.
