Stokvis gas-fired boilers play a key role in supporting a biomass boiler at a new school in Bristol.

A biomass boiler sized to meet half of the heating requirement of a new school in Bristol is supported by two Stokvis Econoflame boilers and plate heat exchangers. The plant meets the requirements for space heating and hot water. The Oasis Academy John Williams has been built by Bristol City Council to replace an earlier building on adjoining land. Skanska was the project manager.

The two 650 kW Econoflame boilers can meet all the load if the biomass boiler is being serviced, and themselves share the duty to reduce wear.

Two Econoplate plate heat exchangers are used to meet the academyís high demand for domestic hot water used in the washrooms and changing rooms and for preparing food.
