Rainbow Heat and Power Looking Good at NextGen 2014

8 October 2014

Here at Rainbow Heat and Power we think the stand is looking really good at the NextGen 2014 show. Not only do we have an actual Lindner & Sommerauer Biomass Boiler we are also show casing a few of our case studies:

Fairclough Hall

Fairclough Hall Farm Estate includes a substantial farmhouse residence and estate office units with expansion plans for the further.

We supplied and installed two 99kW Guntamatic Biocom boilers in cascade, with a fuel store, to send 198kW of heat to a 3,000 litre buffer tank. The heat, in the form of hot water, is distributed to each unit by a district heating pump. They have now been adapted by using bespoke SAV heating and hot water units with individual heat metering.

As well as delivering fuel cost savings of 50-80%, the installation is now accredited for Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) and will receive payments in excess of £22,895 for the next 20 years.

Hay House Nursing Home

Resident comfort is a priority for the owners, who were experiencing large heating bills from the three old and inefficient oil boilers they were using to heat this Grade II listed building.

We won a competitive tender for the supply and installation of a 150kW Linder & Sommerauer biomass boiler which will run on EN Plus grade wood pellets.

Two 2,000 litre buffer stores, all associated fitting accessories and a wood pellet fuel suction system were also included. As part of the project, Rainbow also managed Hay House’s RHI application.

A 150kW project of this size would expect to receive Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) Payments of approximately £17,000 per annum and to gain a fuel cost saving versus oil of 20-40% or approximately £3,500 per annum.

The fuel cost savings and RHI payments combined will deliver a payback on the capital cost of the equipment in 5 years.
