Castle Coole, Enniskillen
Due to the National Trust’s commitment to a sustainable future, KES Group were awarded the contract to install a renewable heating solution at the Castle Coole grounds in Enniskillen. This project will include the installation of a wood-fuelled biomass heating system along with a district heating system which will be used to provide heat to the Castle Coole Mansion and Grand Yard. This biomass project will replace several old oil-fired boilers and a biomass boiler, both of which are coming to the end of their expected lifespan. Switching from oil to biomass gives the National Trust a more sustainable energy supply which will reduce the use of fossil fuels and remove the environmental risk of oil leaks.
KES Group will install a superior Austrian manufactured ETA Boiler and utilise a fully fabricated packaged boiler house skid manufactured inhouse at our Omagh facility along with a 750m underground district heating system.
The National Trust have set targets to achieve a 20% reduction in its total energy use and generate 50% of its energy from renewable sources by 2020. These targets are set to make a valuable contribution to the sustainability of the Trust’s special place and to the local environment. This project will send them on their way to achieving their renewable targets for 2020.
