The Strathmore Hotel Group is a long established group with hotels in Northern England and Scotland. They have committed to switching their heating to biomass (wood pellet), providing a sustainable, renewable source of heating and reducing carbon emissions whilst promoting the hotel group’s environmental credentials.

The installation of 36 BioWIN Excel wood pellet boilers from Windhager’s commercial boiler range provides the heat and hot water for seven hotels within the group. Completed by Newcastle based installers, Green Guru, the BioWIN Excels replace their old fossil fuelled boilers with a sustainable and cost effective alternative.

Charlie Lamb, Sales Director at Windhager UK commented, “The Strathmore Hotel group are committed to the environment with a very sustainable approach to running their business, we are pleased that we were able to contribute to their aims. With full biomass heating across all hotels there will be a significant reduction in their carbon footprint and a big saving in energy costs.”

Windhager’s BioWIN Excel has proved extremely popular amongst commercial installations due to its reliability, small footprint and cascade application. The biomass boilers can be linked together to match the heat demand of individual buildings in a cascade system comprising up to four BioWIN Excel boilers. This is a particularly popular choice amongst applications such as hotels and leisure facilities that require a high winter demand (heat and hot water) with lower summer demands when hot water only is required.
