LCSL delivers control of biomass plant for Harewood House
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.
