United Lincolnshire Hospitals NHS Trust - Pilgrim Hospital, in Boston has delivered one of the largest and most successful biomass heating projects in the UK. The 3MW Steam Binder Boiler is an ideal template for how the NHS can apply biomass heating to significantly reduce both carbon emissions and heating costs.
The design, installation and now ongoing operation has been delivered by highly experienced specialists within COFELY and Wood Energy. The overall project reduced boiler house and total site emissions by 51% (including imported electricity). Annual financial savings are expected in the region of £210,000 per annum and a significant majority of these savings will be delivered solely by the biomass boiler.
Wood Energy has now taken all this expertise to launch a new product called the Green Heat Module, specifically designed for maximising the benefit of the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI). The scheme will revolutionise the way buildings are heated, with biomass heating being the preferred choice in NHS buildings. The Green Heat Module can be procured as an energy service contract (heat sold on a p/kWh basis), lease or direct purchase. For further information: www.woodenergy.com.
