Linear Control Systems Ltd (LCSL) has completed the installation of the building energy management system for the second phase of Harewood House’s £2 million investment. It is for a biomass plant that can heat over 30 buildings and save over 500 t of CO2 a year.

With 850 acres of forestry, Harewood Estate will be self sustainable.

The Grade 1 listed building presented many challenges to Linear Controls. Working with the estates department and trust enabled a seamless encapsulated system to be developed and delivered.

The BEMS is a Tridium system communicating over fibre, Ethernet and wireless communications protocols to control and monitor from a central station in the facilities office on the estate.

The biomass plant comprises a 500 kW biomass boiler, one of the largest in Yorkshire, with secondary biomass and standby oil boilers and thermal stores. It will provide district heating for the estate and house.
