The biomass boiler system provides heat to 4 buildings at Beeston Fields Golf Club via an underground pre-insulated pipe. This includes the Golf club, Greens keepers’ house, The Unit (greens staff machine shed and workshop) and the Marquee (used for corporate, social and wedding events)
The clubhouse is supplied by 3 metres of underground pre insulated pipe from the plant room.
This is an old, detached property that is made of stone. It has no cavity walls or any retro fit insulation in the property. It is fully enclosed with 90% single glazed windows and 10% double glazed. The property is heated by radiators.
The property consist of 67 rooms. On the ground floor there are 29 rooms, the first floor there are 26 rooms. The second floor has 12 rooms.
It was previously heated by 3 gas boilers
The estimated heat load for the property is 160KW, being heat via pre-existing radiators.
The clubhouse uses heat for space and hot water heating.
Green keepers house
The Green keeper’s house is supplied by 45 Metres of underground pre insulated pipe from the plant room.
This as an old, detached property that is made of red brick covered in plaster. It has no cavity walls and 250mm loft insulation. It is fully enclosed with double glazed windows throughout. The property is heated by radiators.
The property has 9 rooms on the ground floor there are 4 and the first floor there are 5
The property was previously heated by 1 gas boiler.
The estimated heat load is 30KW, being heated via pre-existing radiators.
The greens keepers’ house uses heat for space and hot water heating.
The Unit (green staff Machine Shed)
The machine shed is supplied heat by 60 meters of underground pre insulated pipe from the plant room.
The shed measures 28.4m x 15.0m and is used to house the Golf Clubs green keeping equipment.
The shed is a modern building of steel construction with Big 6 cladding sheets. The property is heated by fan coils.
The estimated heat load is 30KW, being heated via a fan coil circuit.
The Unit uses heat for space and hot water heating.
The marquee is supplied by 62 metres of underground pre insulated pipe from the plant room.
The marquee measures 30.4m x 12.8m and the attached marquee kitchen measures 9.1m x 6.1m
The marquee is a permanent structure use for weddings and functions.
The marquee is fully enclosed with no glazing as such except for transparent sides. The marquee is heated via hot air blowing units.
The estimated heat load is 30KW
The Marquee is a permanent venue that we are taking bookings for years in advance. The main aluminium structure lasts for upwards of 20 years. We will replace sections as needed. The side panels and roof panels last for anywhere from 5 – 10 years depending on conditions. We have and will continue to replace these when needed.
The Marquee uses heat for space and hot water heating.
Part 2.:Whether or not your boiler is located in its own boiler house, separate from the buildings where the heat is being used:
The boiler system is located in a boiler house converted from a brand new 40 foot long shipping container which is located at a distance of 3 metres from the point at which the connecting pipe work enters into the plant room in the basement of the club house.
The boiler house contains 2x ETA PE-K 90kW biomass boiler, rated output 28.4 – 95.0kW (wood pellets). The boiler uses wood pellets that are stored in a purposed built timber constructed wood fuel store within the container, approximately 13 tonnes of storage capacity. It is heated by a 4,000 litre buffer tank and there is also an 800 litre heating expansion vessel to allow for thermal expansion on the primary side of the system. This is all stored within the boiler house and can be seen on the plant room layout document uploaded with the supporting evidence section for reference.
Part 3: Details of any ineligible uses of heat
The heat generated from this system is transported to the various properties via three sets of underground pre insulated pipe. There is a heat meter (14272197) on the biomass boiler system, which is seen on the schematic diagram.
Pipe run 1 transports heat to the club house, via 3 m of underground pre insulated pipe work. There is a heat meter (14285563) next to where the underground pipe works connect to the golf club to measure heat used.
Pipe run 2 transports heat to the marquee, via 62 meters of underground pre insulated pipe work. There is a heat meter (14251678) next to where the underground pipe works connect to the marque to measure heat used.
Pipe run 3 transports heat to two locations. It travels 25m underground before reaching a T.
Travelling 20m before reaching the Green Keepers house, there is a heat meter (14251685) next to where the underground pipe works connect to the house to measure heat used.
Continuing from the T, the pre insulated pipe continues a further 60m to the Green staff machine shed, there is a heat meter (14273174) next to where the underground pipe work connects to measure heat used.
