5D Group has been working with BOA to make their biomass boiler (500kW) operational which had been installed in 2011 as part of the flagship development of this academy, specialising in Creative, Digital and Performing arts. Due to design faults the boiler wasn't being utilised, leaving the academy to rely on their gas boilers for heating and hot water. Upon further investigation it was clear that the installation wasn't registered for RHI payments which when completed would deliver an annual income of £25,000.
5D Group identified a problem with the fuel store design which was allowing water ingress and thereby affecting the wood chip. Having arranged for the fuel to be removed, the school's in-house maintenance team were able to complete the remedial works, dry fuel was replaced and 5D Group returned to recommission the boiler to full operation. In addition 5D Group undertook the RHI application on behalf of BOA which is expected to be accepted shortly.
