Welsh leisure centre adds biomass heat system
Rhyl Leisure Centre will be the home to a new biomass heating system after planning permission was granted by Denbighshire council’s planning committee.
The system, to be installed by E.ON Energy Solutions, will provide heat and warmth to the centre and its swimming pool. The structure will be 10.1 metres in width and stretch up 3.5 metres.
“The scheme is a pilot project for the council and is part of an initiative to reduce the carbon emissions and energy costs associated with council run buildings,’ said a Denbighshire council spokesperson. “E.ON Energy Solutions has been appointed as the energy services company who will own and operate the biomass system and supply heat and hot water to the leisure centre.’
The proposal for the 600kw unit received further approval from planning officers who were said to be ‘satisfied with the emission dispersal rates’ provided by the system.
