Rainbow Heat and Power Biomass Boiler System makes 40% Fuel Cost Savings and Reduces CO2 by 96%

20 October 2014

Lynhales Hall Nursing Home is set in seven acres of wood and parkland with ornamental lakes. The Manor House, now refurbished, was built in circa 1588 and extended in the Georgian Period.

The Main House comprises two floors of single and shared rooms, the majority of which have en-suite facilities providing accommodation for 53 residents.

The driver for the customer was the reduction of a large annual oil bill to heat the nursing homes and offices. The system would need to replace 7 ageing and inefficient oil boilers.

Rainbow Heat and Power carried out a turnkey project including all ground works, trenching, primary and secondary connections, erecting buildings and civils. We also organised and oversaw the construction of a new building to house the biomass boilers and fuel store.

As well as fuel cost savings of 20-40%, the installation will soon be accredited into the Renewable Heat Incentive. Once approved, the client will start to receive quarterly RHI payments. The RHI payments and the fuel cost saving will ensure that the project is sustainable and financially viable.

The RHI Payments and fuel cost savings combined will give a 5-6 year payback.
