Case Study : Solar Thermal

Commercial Solar Thermal Installation

Situated on the West Coast of Scotland, client was looking for a solution to service three isolated shower blocks within a busy campsite.  Accommodating over 100 camping plots, the site has high hot water demand for guests showering in the morning and in the early evening after daily activities.

The shower blocks themselves are isolated within the site, with no access to mains services, causing an additional problem faced by any accommodation provider. 

In a bid to reduce costs and increase efficiency, The McInnes Group recommended the installation of Solar Thermal Panels with an LPG oil boiler for back up. This will not only provide reduced fuel costs, but also provide the site with an income from the renewable Heat Incentive (RHI).

The energy demand for the shower blocks is not vast, however is to ensure sufficient hot water is available, especially during peak times of the day, as well as heating within the buildings. 

With the positioning of the building, McInnes Renewables installed 7 East/West split Solar Thermal panels, which fed into 1000ltr hot water tanks.
