Biomass Boiler Installation at CAFRE, Enniskillen



Client: College of Agriculture Food and Rural Enterprise (CAFRE)

Main Contractor: CHC Group Ltd

Completion: Nov 2010


CHC was appointed to undertake the installation of a new biomass boiler system at CAFRE. This involved:

  • Removal of existing oil fired plant
  • New Biomass boiler installation Incl: auger, buffer vessel & controls) to service campus
  • New hermetically sealed biomass pellet store
  • Building works to form accommodation for boiler & store
  • Electrical works (Wiring, controls & new lighting to boiler house)

The replacement boiler plant had to be carefully programmed with main BEMS & set for efficient temperature control by zone, which required a rigorous commissioning programme.

This solution assisted the College in meeting their sustainable objectives through the installation of a more sustainable alternative to oil and gas fuelled systems.

Works completed on time & budget.
