The main aim of the project was to trial the effectiveness of a new burner management system on the boilers at the school in order to determine whether the system was worth investing in at other schools in the local authority area. The system was provided by the manufacturer (GasForce) on a sale or return basis.

Retrofit features:
Two burner management units were installed, one on each of the two boilers at the school. Tests were then carried out by operating the boilers on alternate days with and without the burner management units switched on. Initially gas meter readings were taken each day but when the results were checked no energy savings were evident. However, following the re-commissioning of the system and the installation of an “Eco Warrior” energy monitoring system at the school, which monitors energy consumption on a half hourly basis, further trails were carried out that did demonstrate significant energy savings. The project was completed in 1999.
