Yes Shaun that’s the sort of set up, some also have a biomass unit which means grants/subsidies

yep this one did as well only 250kw if I remember correctly didn’t work well :D
 
I would love to gain experience in this level of system lol.
I have been asked more and more over the last year or two to service or repair hiu's but have always passed it up as there's no training around on them and very little info generally- websites YouTube's etc. Mi's are available but I don't fancy biting off a repair job simply on mi's.

One of my last jobs commercial projects was to upgrade a retirement complex of 21 one bedroom flats in Norwich this was supplied by 2 boiler rooms each with 2 ideal imax boilers manifolded together at 60 kw per unit connected to a large low loss headers , from there the existing flow and return pipework was connected to 65mm , with a large Grunfoss twin headed pump delivering the heating to each flat where the existing 1" flow and returns into the flats was adapted, elson hotwater tanks were removed all the rads and internal pipework stripped out and renewed 8 of us working in pairs took 6 weeks a huge undertaking each flat had its own HIU to serve each flat supplying heat and hotwater via 2 plate heat exchangers in the unit a water meter and heat meter measure their consumption for billing .
