Technology Type: Biomass 975kW
Summary of Project:
A State school for boys and girls aged 11-18, located in Swanley, Kent, with over 500 pupils.
Install a wood pellet-fuelled 975kW BioPod, in a pre-fabricated plant room, to serve as a base load boiler. The plant room to be located on land adjacent to the existing plant room on the north east side of the school.
Installation of the biomass boiler, converting the Academy from oil to biomass, will save 30% of heating costs and reduce carbon emissions by 90%.
Over the 20-year period of the renewable heat incentive (RHI) the Academy will save £50,000 per annum in heating and maintenance costs.
