We deliver a renewable energy system to heat state-of-the-art Darlington Farmers Auction Mart
0800 Repair has helped the new multi-million-pound Darlington farmers auction mart become one of the most environmentally conscious in the UK with the installation of specialist renewable energy systems.
0800 Repair has installed a large scale, commercial ground source heating system at the site at Humbleton Park, which was recently officially opened by Prince Charles, to provide heat and hot water for the Darlington Farmers Auction Mart (DFAM) facility.
Working in close collaboration with the development’s main contractor, Halls Construction, our engineers created a series of 1.2-metre-deep holes surrounding the auction mart, which are used to extract heat from a three-acre area surrounding the site.
The heat extracted is transported through a plant room, also designed and installed by 0800 Repair, before being distributed around the site through several miles of pipework forming a 4,000 square metre underfloor heating system.
Underfloor heating has been installed throughout the auction mart including a café, which is open to the public, a conference area, board room and ten office units occupied by agricultural businesses, a vets practice, accountant and a law firm.
0800 Repair technology has helped make the state-of-the-art facility environmentally conscious, through use of solar PV and rainwater harvesting for the wash down process to extract solids from animal waste to be used as fertiliser.
The auction mart is the latest in series of projects across the North of England, which 0800 Repair have supported with renewable energy solutions.
It provides a range of energy efficient services to commercial and domestic applications, which includes designing and installing renewable energy systems to reduce energy consumption and cost.
0800 Repair is part of PHS, one of the UK’s leading renewable energy systems providers, and is headquartered in the North East.
