Dencombe House

Commission: Douch Biomass was commissioned to supply and install a wood chip fuelled biomass boiler to supply all the heat requirements to Dencombe House and two further staff cottages.

Boiler Type: Herz Firematic Biocontrol 151kW

Fuel Type: Wood Chip

Fuel Storage: Purpose built low-walled pit silo that contains an auger system delivering chip to the biomass boiler.  Chip from the main storage area is moved to the pit by a vehicle when needed.

CO2 emission reduction: 600 tonnes over 20 years.

Case History: In replacing the old and rather undersized oil boilers, the biomass system ensured Dencombe House and the staff cottages were for the first time warm throughout the winter.

Date Completed: December 2012
