Customer case study: Carden Park Hotel

LPG fuels major savings for Carden Park Hotel

Cutting costs and carbon by switching from oil to LPG

In a move to enhance efficiencies, Carden Park Hotel in Cheshire has switched its entire energy supply from oil to Flogas LPG.

Set within a picturesque 1,000-acre estate, the luxury hotel boasts 196 rooms, 18 meeting rooms, a spa, two championship golf courses, two restaurants and 10 wedding ceremony venues, as well as a three-acre vineyard.

With more than 20,000 guests visiting the off-grid hotel each year, a significant amount of energy was needed to power its heating, hot water and cooking facilities – so it was vital for the hotel to find a reliable, cost-effective and efficient energy solution.

21.8% on energy costs
277 tonnes of CO2 emissions every year (23%)

Reliability is everything when it comes to our fuel supply. LPG is literally at the heart of the hotel and without it, the business would be completely scuppered. This is one of the major reasons we opted for Flogas.

Instant, reliable fuel and quick payback

The conversion from oil to LPG has seen the hotel reduce its energy costs by a substantial 21.8%, whilst reducing carbon emissions by an impressive 23%.

Carden Park’s General Manager Hamish Ferguson says: “With such a high energy demand, we were spending a fortune on oil so we were particularly keen to find a way to reduce overheads while lessening our impact on the environment. We researched other off-grid options, such as renewables, but LPG just made total sense for us. Not only did it provide the quickest payback period, but we’re now saving 277 tonnes of carbon each year in the process – a key reason we continue to be a Green Tourism Gold Award holder.”

A seamless conversion

As a particularly large site, planning was integral, with 420 metres of groundwork to consider. Flogas managed the conversion from start to finish, and fitted 10 LPG tanks discreetly underground in the vineyard to ensure they didn’t impact the landscape for guests and visitors.

The hotel now receives an LPG delivery once a week, although inbuilt telemetry systems on the tanks automatically monitor volumes and alert Flogas when refills are needed, for full peace of mind.
