Equipment199kW WOODSMAN Boiler c/w 8 tonne Fuel Store

Albright Hussey Manor Hoteldating back to 1524 is now heated with WOODSMAN biomass boiler.

After months of researching which biomass boiler to select, Mr. Paul Subbiani, Proprietor of the Albright Hussey Manor Hotel, chose the WOODSMAN 199kW boiler. The hotel is a Grade 2 Listed classic country house and one of only two 4-Star AA hotels in the area. The building dates back to 1524 and has 26 beautifully appointed bedrooms. The owner was spending £20,000 p.a. on oil to heat the hotel. By switching to wood pellets the owner will save approximately £10,000 on fuel costs. On top of that the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) will pay the owner approximately £22,000 p.a. so the savings are quite spectacular for this family owned hotel.

The WOODSMAN 199kW Boiler provides all the hot water and heating needs of the hotel. Space only allowed for an 8 tonne fuel store so the owner will receive 8-9 pellet deliveries p.a. Mr Subbiani built a purpose built plant room adjacent to the hotel and clad the exterior with wood in keeping with the Tudor design of the hotel.

I would just like to write and commend your wonderful product and excellent service. I had been considering a Biomass Boiler for my hotel for about eighteen months when I came across your 199kW Woodsman Boiler. What impressed me initially was the compact size, as I had limited space in which to install a boiler. I had researched many Austrian, German and Italian boilers, all of which were bigger, more complex and more expensive (with some not meeting the new emission laws!). Before I made my decision I called you directly and you answered all my queries. I then decided to visit your facilities in Southern Ireland to see the boiler first hand. Once I saw your facilities and parts back-up, I knew that your boiler was for me and your personal service filled me with confidence.

The boiler has now been installed for eight weeks and I am very happy with its performance and your excellent back-up service. I definitely made the right purchase.

I can now have a very warm hotel with endless hot water without the fear of huge oil bills and I am now looking forward to my first RHI payment.

I have no hesitation in recommending your products and services.
