Elco takes the castle
As part of a major refurbishment, the 180-year-old Studley Castle in Warwickshire needed to refurbish its boiler plant to provide hotel guests with highly efficient and reliable heating and hot water generation.
To fulfil the property’s complex requirements, three Elco Trigon XL 570kW floor standing boilers were specified and installed on the first floor of the main castle building, alongside eight bespoke Inox-Maxi cylinders.
The new equipment provides heating and hot water to the entire building, including: 209 bedrooms, which are spread across the main castle building and newly built accommodation wing; leisure facilities, with heated swimming pool and treatment rooms; restaurants, bars and entertainment venues; plus the main kitchen facilities. Space heating is supplied by radiators throughout the main castle building, while external areas and the entertainment venues utilise air handling units (AHUs) connected to the primary system.
When designing the provision of hot water, building services contractors for the project, LJJ, were acutely aware the system needed to deliver plentiful DHW for peak periods of demand. The bespoke Inox-Maxi cylinders, alongside the Trigon XL boilers, are designed to cope with the peak hot water demands and provide reliable hot water delivery all year round.
