1.5MW Biomass Boiler Commissioned at Dumfries NHS

Tue 01 July 2008

The installation and commissioning of a 1.5 MW Steam Raising Biomass boiler and 200m3 underground woodchip store has been completed at the Dumfries and Galloway Royal Infirmary. The storage system incorporates 3 hydraulically operated doors to simplify fuel delivery. The capacity of the store allows for 2-3 days at full operation.
This landmark project is the largest steam biomass boiler installed in NHS Scotland (with approx 2,300 tonnes carbon dioxide offset per annum), and provides the base load heating requirements for the NHS Dumfries Royal Infirmary and will provide significant cost saving to the site.
