Worcester Bosch launches HVO conversion kits 

Worcester Bosch has announced it will be launching HVO Conversion Kits for its oil boiler portfolio. 

The HVO (Hydrogenated Vegetable Oil) Conversion Kits will be made available for general sale later this year and will be suitable for the manufacturer’s Heatslave and Danesmoor oil-fired boiler ranges. The kits will enable the company’s Heatslave or Danesmoor products manufactured after September 2018 (or September 2019 for outputs between 35-70kW) to be converted to operate on HVO. 

Oil users that purchase a HVO Conversion Kit will be able to reduce the carbon output of their existing heating system without the need of moving to an alternative technology. 

Martyn Bridges, Director of Technical Services of Worcester Bosch, said; “At Worcester, we believe the road to net zero requires a technology-agnostic approach, to ensure all homeowners have options when it comes to reducing their carbon output. This is why we continue to develop, introduce and strengthen new and existing technologies that can help reduce the carbon intensity of our products. 

“Although availability of HVO and other bio-fuels remains limited in the UK today, we strongly believe that this will improve significantly in the next few years, which is why we are introducing new Conversion Kits later in the year.” 

The company says that further information on HVO Conversion Kits will be released later this year.
