Peninsula Print is a commercial printing business employing over 30 people in Newtownards, Co. Down.

CHP Mechanical Services were approached to design, supply and install a biomass boiler system with fuel store and a complete heating system, comprising of fan coil units in various areas of the factory.

The factory was previously heated in only one area with a direct fired oil heater which ran on oil. This system was inefficient as it only heated a small proportion of the factory and was expensive to run.

 

The new system comprised of air heaters in three different areas of the factory which were connected to a new heating pipe network, with the heat source being a Herz 99KW Firematic Boiler running on wood pellets.  The wood pellets are stored on site in a 10 tonne fuel store which is connected to the boiler with a flexible auger.

We expect the client to make savings of a round £20K per annum comprising of a RHI tariff payment and the savings achieved of using wood pellets compared to oil.

The installation was efficient, effective and there was no interruption to business.

Installation:

99kw Herz Firematic pellet boiler with associated buffer tank and controls.

Testimonial:

“We have just got through our first winter with the system and we’ve certainly noticed the difference,” said Mr Cooke. “We have had no hassle
with it at all, and already we’ve noticed that the savings are colossal.”

He added: “In our line of business we store a lot of paper and we have to be wary of the temperature changes all the time. If it gets too cold, the paper can get damp or ripple, and be unusable. “We haven’t been worrying so much about that since CHP Mechanical Services Ltd
installed the new system.

“We’ve expanded a lot over the last three years and needed to improve our heating. We considered a second boiler but
that would have been a huge cost. “The work CHP Services Ltd did took 4-6 weeks and the system is easy to maintain. We’re glad we made
the decision to give them the job.”
