Biomass heating commission
Published: 26 February, 2014
The Crown Estate has appointed Midlands-based LORIEN ENGINEERING SOLUTIONS to design and project manage a proposed woodchip boiler and district heating system, to be installed at Windsor Great Park.
The scheme will use woodchip produced locally from The Crown Estate forests, and will serve more than 60 domestic properties and a mix of commercial buildings.
The commission follows an initial feasibility report completed by Burton based Lorien, which considered viable biomass options for the Estate, along with the potential for generating wood chip from its own forestry activities.
Lorien’s team of engineers and project managers are highly experienced in the technologies and equipment required for biomass, biogas and waste to energy projects.
Lorien project manager Tom Jordan said: “We are excited to be involved in this project for The Crown Estate, which sees us build on our extensive track record of delivering complex renewable energy schemes within sensitive, historic environments.”
