Working with an experienced installer has been a real benefit to the delivery of the project. With Treco also taking on the long term support of the installation, it means that households will continue to receive guaranteed renewable heating in the long term.Rod Pope, Lomand Homes
Perryfields is a 72 unit housing development in Portland, Dorset built by Lomand Homes. The development features an integrated mix of private ownership, affordable and 22 units of social housing.
Lomand Homes wanted the Perryfields development to incorporate highly energy efficient homes with low occupancy costs. The properties were designed to make the most of insulation, low energy lighting, heat recovery and recirculation. Biomass district heating was specified to also give the development energy efficient heating.
Treco supplied and installed three 100kW Guntamatic Powerchip biomass boilers, commissioned to burn wood pellets.
Each boiler supplies a network of houses and appartments via a large district heating scheme. The system delivers low operating costs and automatic ash removal. The boilers were each installed with a 2,000 litre buffer tank. Large fuel stores automatically feed wood pellets into the boilers.
Heat is supplied to each unit via an underground heat main. Consumer Interface Units were fitted into each property, enabling automatic billing and the easy calculation of RHI Payments.
Treco‘s design, installation, commissioning and maintenance service included;
As well as delivering fuel cost savings of 20-40% with wood pellets and 50-80% with wood chips, Perryfields is now accredited into the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI). This will enable them to gain significant payments per unit of heat generated and used by submitting quarterly meter readings to OFGEM.
A project of this size would gain upwards of £33,924 every year for 20 years, index linked to inflation.
Longer term, control of the district heating system will be passed on to a tenant and owner, community-led company, giving long-term low cost of occupancy.
