Hotel, North Devon

Robin CottonCase studies, News

Saunton Sands Hotel is 77-bedroom luxury hotel on the North Devon coast with extensive spa facilities and both indoor and outdoor (summer only) heated swimming pools.

For the previous 10 years the hotel had heat and hot water provided by a 200kW Twin Heat Biomass boiler, with an LPG boiler rated at 330kW acting as back up and peaking capacity. Unfortunately, the Twin heat boiler was unreliable with high levels of maintenance and repairs.

After initial discussions with BBSM, a new Hargassner 330kW wood chip boiler was put forward as a direct replacement of the Twin Heat boiler. To reduce capital cost the existing wood fuel store and feed system was retained and integrated with the new Hargassner boiler.
