2 x ETA Hack 500kW Biomass Boiler

Installation Partner: Ecosmart Energy Systems


The Chatsworth estate committed to invest in renewable technology and reduce their carbon impact. In late 2013 they opened The Chatsworth Renewable Energy Centre to feed heat and power to the 300 room house, garden, stables, shops and restaurants in late 2013.


Two ETA Hack 500kW biomass boilers were installed including an agitator and walking floor. The energy centre was reconfigured and connected to the existing network. A fully efficient combined heat and power system is now in place serving all associated buildings with impressive fuel savings and promising revenue. All the timber is sourced from the Chatsworth woodlands, from the estate’s sustainable thinning and felling operations, dried and chipped on site.
