St Clere Estate (Manor House)

Commission: The St Clere Estate have been enjoying the benefits of biomass in the Manor House and adjacent cottages for a number of years. However, the existing boiler was showing its age, so the decision was made to replace it with a modern Gilles industrial 180kW boiler, together with a 230kW backup boiler.

This was achieved whilst being able to keep the existing RHI tariff from the old boiler.

As part of the installation work the existing fuel silo configuration was changed to an external buried silo with a sliding loading door, so that wood chip can be tipped easily into the silo with a tractor and trailer.

Boiler Type: Gilles HPKI-R-180kW

Date Completed: July 2019

  • 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.
