100th district heating installation under scheme celebrated

The 100th installation to be completed under the UK’s Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) is being celebrated, after being accredited on the 19th June last.

The Meikleour Trust, a Scottish estate, installed a 500kWth biomass boiler to supply heat via a district heating system to a range of buildings including the main house, a greenhouse, holiday lets and other outbuildings.

The scheme made use of pre insulated pipe work supplied by REHAU.

The owner also intends to expand the system to a planned housing development in the future. The fuel is local woodchip that is sourced from sustainable local forestry, said the UK District Energy Association in a statement.
