Biomass boilers fuelled by wood chips from the Inverary Estate have been installed to serve the private apartments of Inverary Castle.

Remeha has supplied two biomass boilers to provide heating and hot water for the private apartments of Inverary Castle in Scotland, home of the 13th Duke of Argyll. They were made by Gilles and each has an output of 145 kW. They are fuelled by wood chips manufactured and supplied by the Inverary Estate itself — minimising incidental carbon emissions.

The boilers are located in a remote boiler house and connected to the castle by underground heating mains. The boilers are modulating, fully controllable and automatic, The combustion chamber is lined with replaceable ceramic radiant fire bricks and designed for high-temperature operation. Clean combustion is guaranteed by the high temperatures and the length of time the gases remain in the furnace.

The boilers were specified by Irons Foulner of Edinburgh.
