Combwell Priory

Flimwell, East Sussex

Commission: Given the annual net heat load at Combwell Priory was in the region of 180,000kWh, the owners were keen to reduce their carbon footprint as well as their heating costs. To meet this demand, Douch Biomass specified and designed a 199kW biomass system. The system was installed within an existing barn to provide heat and hot water to the main house, annex and swimming pool and the existing tack room was converted into a large bulk pellet store. Douch Biomass then assisted with the RHI application in order to secure their RHI accreditation.

Boiler Type: Herz Firematic 199kW
