Leading global lodging company Marriot International selected Strebel to provide a reliable and more efficient heating and hot water solution for its Forest of Arden Marriott Hotel & Country Club located in the West Midlands.

The new heating solution involved the installation of three Strebel RU2S-10 sectional 698kW boilers, each powered by Baltur TBG 120MC gas burners producing a total output capability of 2.1MW. The burners were supplied by EOGB based in St Neots, Cambridgeshire.

The improved heating system provides heat and hot water for the 3-floor, 214-room luxury hotel and full-service hotel spa.

By replacing the existing boilers with boilers powered by EOGB/Baltur burners, the hotel now benefits from increased efficiency and lower CO2 and NOx emissions. Additionally, the units provide superior reliability and reduced fuel consumption.

Martin Cooke, Technical Manager at EOGB, said: “The burner-boiler match in this heating system is extremely effective. The technologically advanced Baltur TBG range of burners are all class three low NOx as standard, and coupled with the well established RU range of Strebel boilers, provides optimum combustion and performance which means that heating can be controlled more economically.”

Mike Fodor, Director of Engineering at the Forest of Arden Marriott Hotel & Country Club, said: “A high efficiency heating system is vital to ensure that our guests enjoy a pleasant and comfortable stay. As well as improving overall performance, the new installation will also be beneficial in reducing our energy consumption, which supports our group wide sustainability goals.”

The EOGB/Baltur commercial gas burner range is available with outputs from 50kw to 10,850kw. The burners have low CO and NOx emissions and are easy to install which enables a trouble-free commissioning which is fully supported by EOGB engineers.
