The team have just completed the replacement of three commercial boilers at the world-renowned Royal Liverpool Golf Club. The existing Atlantic gas-fired boilers had become extremely unreliable and two of them were inoperative. This left the club in the difficult position where the remaining boilers would be under greater pressure to cover the missing capacity.
In their 150th year and with winter fast approaching, the decision was taken to replace three of the existing Atlantic boilers that supply three-quarters of the total output of 208kw. There are also internal domestic hot water heat exchangers which supply the 300 litre domestic hot water buffer vessel.
The first part of our role was to decommission and remove the Atlantic boilers and flue systems. With this complete, we were then tasked with the supply and install of three new gas-fired Atag condensing boilers.
The system supplies hot water for the kitchen and showers in the changing facilities – as well as the heating system, so are worked hard during the colder winter months.
The work was completed in under four days by the Kimpton team on site.
Royal Liverpool is in Hoylake, Wirral and one of the ten rota courses for the Open Championship. After a 39 year gap, the Open returned to Royal Liverpool in 2006, then again in 2014 and is due to return in 2022, the 13th time the competition will have been held at the course since its first visit in 1897.
The course and clubhouse have undergone huge changes over its long history. Two very noticeable changes are in the scoring and the prize money for the winner. In 1897, Harold Hilton won a purse of £30 (around £3800 today), as an amateur, with a score of 314. On his first round he shot 80, which these days would certainly see him struggle to even make the cut. Rory McIlroy’s win in 2014 netted him £975,000 but he had to shoot 271 to win – 43 shots lower than Hilton’s winning score 117 years earlier.
