Penrhyn Castle biomass. Hotting up and bye bye oil

the new building buries in the woods of the carpark (near the half acre of PV)

I had a few minutes spare today and so popped over to have a look at how our new Penrhyn Castle biomass is progressing. The new building has a roof. Waiting for the PV system in a few weeks for said roof (powering the hot water pumps). The twin 150kw woodchip boilers have arrived along with the buffer tanks. Augers looking symmetrical and are sitting there ready to be installed. Overall the project is progressing well. It’s just a pity you don’t get to see all the plumbing which has gone into the castle to make sure we make the most use of this new heat. Pipes in roof voids, spaces behind panels and through cellars and so on. Stunning pipe work (I know i get worked up with pipes but what the hey!) The reason i am quite passionate about this site is that Penrhyn is the last major site the National Trust has in Wales on oil heating and its about to be an ex-oil site. Quite a shift in the last five years. We are now working on the rest of the smaller sites
