Hotel group opts for biomass boilers

Windhager, biomass, renewable energy, boilers

The Strathmore Hotel Group, which has hotels in northern England and Scotland, has installed wood pellet boilers to provide heating and hot water for seven hotels. The 36 BioWin Excel boilers from Windhager’s commercial range were installed by Green Guru of Newcastle to replace fossil-fuelled boilers.

Charlie Lamb, sales director with Windhager UK, said, ‘The Strathmore Hotel Group is committed to the environment with a very sustainable approach to running its business. With full biomass heating across all hotels, there will be a significant reduction in carbon footprint and a big saving in energy costs.’

These boilers can be linked in a cascade system. This is a popular choice for applications such as hotels and leisure centres that have a high winter demand (heat and hot water) with lower summer demands when only hot water is required.
