Fuel bills will be more than halved for this golf club and hotel following the installation of biomass boilers.

Manor House Golf Club and the adjacent Manor House Hotel in the Cotswolds expects to more than halve its fuel bills for space heating following the replacement of oil- fired heating with a wood-pellet boiler system. An income of £14 000 a year from the Renewable Heat Incentive will be generated. The 5-star hotel is part of The Exclusive Hotels Group.

The new installation comprises two 60 kW Windhager BioWIN Excel wood-pellet boilers in cascade to meet the requirement for a large but varying output. the 6 mm wood pellets originate from the UK.

The oil-fired system had been costing on average £13 000 a year in fuel alone to heat the building — which includes accommodation, restaurant, bars and changing facilities.

The biomass system will save around £6500 in fuel a year and achieve a boiler efficiency of 92%. The RHI payments are additional.

These boilers have an automatic system for feeding pellets. The stainless-steel combustion burner bowl has a patented cleaning mechanism, removing much of the necessity for manual upkeep. The compact design of these boilers enables them to be installed in a small boiler room.

Other features include a central control system and weather compensation.

Wessex Biomass was the installer, and this was its ninth projects using Windhager boilers.
