This rural farm wanted to reduce their oil bills, so opted to take advantage of the government incentives by switching to biomass heating. They chose wood chip, due to the sustainable source of chip in the local area and the minimal. This site required a consistently high heat load, which is where wood chip works best.
A 110 kW Froling T4 chip boiler was selected for its clean burn and high efficiencies. The boiler house was set in a barn adjacent to the chip store. The chips were auger fed into the boiler through the adjoining wall. The thermal store is a 850L buffer and serves the farm house with hot water and heating.
