1.5MW Biomass Boiler at Dumfries NHS

1.5MW Biomass Boiler at Dumfries NHS

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.
Jefcoate Anderson Architects Ltd were appointed by lead consultant for the project, Renewable Devices, tasked with the co-ordination of the design for the new storage and fuel feed facility.  Despite being essentially a large underground bunker, the proposals required planning permissions and building warrant applications.  The design had to be co-ordinated with a large multi-disciplinary team of structural engineers, mechanical and electrical engineers and specialist contractors.

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.
