Dingwall & Highland Mart Biomass District Heating System Installation, IV15

Dingwall & Highland Mart Biomass District Heating System Installation, IV15

The Dingwall and Highland Mart is a thriving agricultural mart near Inverness in the Highlands of Scotland. As a key link in the agricultural community, the mart wanted to reduce running costs and reliance on fossil fuels, and help to build a more sustainable future.

Heat was to be supplied to the central heating and hot water system of the mart building, as well as provide heat for two cottages located on the grounds of the mart. The cottages could have been heated using an efficient domestic pellet boiler or biomass log boiler, but the large heat requirement for the mart made this installation a prime candidate for district heating system, and so a large 200 kW woodchip boiler was chosen to heat all three properties.

AC Gold worked closely with the staff at Dingwall mart to  design and supply the perfect turnkey biomass solution to help them to reduce fossil-derived CO2 emissions, improve the carbon footprint of the business and help improve Dingwall & Highland Auction Marts position as a green company.
