MEDIUM COMBUSTION PLANT DIRECTIVE

Medium Combustion Plant Directive (MCPD) is an initiative to clean up the emissions from fossil fuel heating systems. This is set to have a massive impact on the horticultural and commercial industries.

For big energy users, there are many oil and gas boilers that will fall into the criteria of the MCPD, and the installations are going to need to comply much sooner than many people realise.

In principle, any boiler of over 5MW input (input, not output!), will need to comply with MCPD by 1st January 2025. Following this, any boiler of over 1MW, will need to comply with MCPD by 1st January 2030.

In principle, any boiler of over 5MW input (input, not output!), will need to comply with MCPD by 1st January 2025. Following this, any boiler of over 1MW, will need to comply with MCPD by 1st January 2030.

Compliance with the MCPD regulations is all about emissions and the extent of the work required is largely going to be dependant on the age, condition, capacity and running hours of the plant.

 

Again, industry advice is generally being led by the boiler manufacturers, and whilst the advice is being pushed towards replacement of your boiler equipment, compliance may be possible through burner replacements and or capacity de-rating.

 

Please contact us to discuss your requirements, and maybe take this opportunity for us to discuss alternative heat and energy sources with you.

Our qualified engineers have a wide knowledge of all heating installations. Where required we can install a range of oil and gas boilers that are compliant with the government's new Medium Combustion Plant Directive.
