In Summary

Local renewable energy company, Green Guru NE won the contract to install one of the first wood-fired heating systems in a northeast hotel.

As part of a substantial refurbishment programme, the prestigious Best Western Derwent Manor Hotel in Allensford chose to replace their ageing oil fired boilers with a state-of-the-art biomass heating system using wood pellets.

The hotel’s heating is now 100% renewable with the new system providing heating and hot water for the hotel, three holiday cottages, the leisure centre and indoor pool.The new system will not only cut the Hotel’s annual fuel bill by around 30%, its carbon footprint will be reduced by over 140 tonnes of carbon dioxide per year.

The systems were installed with no down-time to the hotel’s heating system. Two 180 kW systems each comprising three 60 kW boilers working together ensure optimum efficiency and reliability.
