MHS Boilers, solar thermal
Energy-efficient heating and hot water for the HIghland Archive Centre in Scotland is provided by condensing boilers and solar thermal collectors supplied by MHS boilers.

Gas-fired boilers and solar -thermal energy work together to meet the heating and hot-water requirements of the recently opened Highland Archive Centre in Inverness. The boilers and solar panels, along with a 300 l stainless-steel water cylinder were all supplied by MHS Boilers for this £10.5 million investment by the Heritage Lottery Fund and The Highland Council.

The centre includes an archive conservation unit, ceremony suite and modern office accommodation. There is also a family-history centre for visitors to trace their family tree and cross reference it with the on-site registration service. Specialist controls will safeguard the stored records, which were previously in Edinburgh.

There are two Ultramax 500 kW floor-standing condensing boilers and 4 m2 of Auron 20 DF solar vacuum tube collectors.

These boilers have two return connections as standard to serve circuits requiring different flow temperatures. They are designed to pass through standard doorways. Efficiencies are up to 109% with NOx emissions less than 35 mg/kWh.
