Sustainable Ireland Awards Win
Our Holmview Omagh district biomass heating scheme is the 2015 Sustainable Ireland Awards 2015 Building Project winner.
The project, involving the refurbishment and upgrade of 13 apartments and 4 houses for a commercial landlord/ property letting company involved replacing oil and Economy 7 with a district heating system fuelled by a wood pellet boiler to serve the 17 domestic properties. The scheme has met with a very positive response from the tenants who are seeing huge reductions in their fuel bills. The wood pellet boiler also gives an estimated carbon saving of 43 tonnes per year – 860 tonnes over its projected 20 year lifespan.
The award was sponsored by ISL waste management.
The judges said: “This project has not only had a positive impact on the environment, but has also resulted in significant savings in energy costs. It’s a perfect example of how sustainable and renewable energy sources can be successfully retrofitted into properties.”
