A neighbourhood centre and new GP practice in Oldham have both chosen bio-fuel technology by Atlantic Boilers for their heating and hot water needs. Selected by consulting engineers, Blue Sky Inspired of Stockport, each building has a 90kW R Series Atlantic year-round condensing boiler having an efficiency of between 92% GCV and 97% GCV – (98% NCV and 103% NCV). The neighbourhood centre boiler burns B100 bio-liquid transformed from waste vegetable oil and rape seed oil, and the GP Surgery boiler burns natural gas with an option to burn B100 bio-fuel in the future.
Fitton Hill Neighbourhood Centre is a purpose-built facility which provides enhanced community services. The building houses a library, youth centre and community facilities. Phase two of the development comprises a purpose-built medical facility, Hill Top Surgery. This newly opened building adjoins and fully integrates with the existing building.
The boilers bridge the gap between gas condensing and bio-liquid condensing boilers and both boilers are served by carefully selected B100 storage and circulating circuits.
The neighbourhood centre system was installed by Lewis Facilities of Chadderton, and the Surgery system by Bay Building Services of Morecambe.
