Hellens Manor, Much Marcle
A KOB 100 kW Log Boiler provides heat and hot water to one of the oldest historic houses in England dating back to 1096.
- The Great Barn and Haywain Building are hired out for events and the Georgian Stables have been refurbished to provide accommodation.
- Heat from the biomass plant room is fed through a district heating network to the buildings.
- The system is weather compensated and heat demand to each building is controlled via purpose-built heat interface units, which regulate the return temperature back to the plant room, thus reducing heat loss from underground heat main and improving the efficiency of the system.
- The system was sized to heat the event venues and accommodation building, but if the heat is not required here, it can be used in the Manor House.
- Backup oil boilers can be used in the event that the log boiler is unavailable.
