In 1996, the dual-boiler system (245+275kW) was installed and adjusted by a general contractor which, in the following years, cost the heating contractor a lot of money.
The system kept the two boilers at a constantly high temperature. This was because the minimal settings of the controller were incorrectly set at 69°C and no night-time reduction was set. The system was stewing in its own juice for 4 years; between 69° (minimal outlet) and 85° (maximum outlet) just like an outdated constant-temperature system from the seventies.
A whole lot of other measures for optimizing the system, which could have been taken immediately prior to commissioning, and are easily achievable by simple settings or circuits, were also identified.
