Future fuels case study: converting a boiler to HVO operation

With industry efforts focused on securing amendments to the Government’s proposed energy bill to include liquid fuels in the decarbonisation of home heat, this case study, submitted by Grant, demonstrates the ease with which an oil-fired boiler can be converted to HVO operation.

A case study from Grant UK demonstrates the ease with which an oil-fired boiler can be converted to HVO operation

Here we follow the HVO conversion of a Grant Vortex oil-fired boiler.

All of Grant’s floor standing Vortex oil-fired boilers are compatible with Hydrotreated Vegetable Oil (HVO) biofuel. The process of converting to HVO operation is straightforward and can be carried out as part of the boiler’s annual service.

This step-by-step case study takes a closer look at the HVO conversion process.

Step 1: Turn off the boiler, isolate the electrical supply and shut off the oil supply.

Step 2: The existing oil tank will need to be drained of kerosene and . . .
