A Scottish hotel on the banks of Loch Ness has slashed its heating and hot-water costs following the installation of two wood-pellet boilers to completely replace LPG boilers and electric storage heaters. The combination of fuel-cost savings and payments from the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) amounts to about £26 700 a year and are almost evenly split.

The installation for the Glenmoriston Arms Hotel comprised two Windhager 60 kW BioWin Excel boilers and a 1500 l accumulator tank in an external BioCabin. They were specified by local installer McInnes Renewables.

The cabin was delivered fully equipped for easy and quick installation. It was installed during the hotel’s shutdown winter months.

BioCabins are tailor made to each project. They comprise a fully equipped plant room and integrated wood-pellet store. They can be craned into position. Up to four boilers can be installed in cascade to deliver up to 240 kW of heat.
