St Clere Estate (Coney Shaw)

Commission: The St Clere Estate were already familiar with and enjoying the benefits of biomass in the Manor House. Douch Biomass were contracted to design and install another biomass system for the 8 properties at their Coney Shaw Farm development, also on the estate. Two 130kW Herz Firematic biomass boilers were installed, together with a 6000 litre accumulator tank.

The heat from the biomass system is distributed around the site via a below ground district heating network and provides heat to the residential dwellings as well as a Tea Factory and office building.

The boilers are fed from a buried fuel silo with a sliding loading door. Wood chip is delivered to site with a tractor and trailer and tipped directly into the store.

The Herz Firematic 130kW boiler control also offers remote visualisation via smartphone, PC or tablet. The handling is the same as the touch screen controller on the boiler itself and the processes and parameters can be read and modified anytime from anywhere.

Boiler Type: 2 x Herz Firematic 130kW

Fuel Type: Wood Chip

CO2 emission reduction: 1400 tonnes over 20 years

Date Completed: January 2017 and further extensions added during 2018

  • Douch Biomass has restored our faith in the biomass industry and we would recommend them unequivocally. They deliver what they say they will deliver; practical solutions that work for the long term with exceptional follow up care. This sounds obvious, but in our experience it is in fact highly unusual in this industry.
