Biomass wood heating systems

If you are looking for an energy efficient, cost effective heating solution for your business, a wood burning boiler could be ideal. Powered by a range of wood fuel types, including pellets, chips, shavings, dust and mixed wood, these systems provide you with an alternative to conventional fossil-fuel based heating.

Our advanced wood heating systems have emissions ratings similar to those of leading fossil fuel powered solutions and they meet the strict regulations detailed in European clean air legislation.

Design & Technology

Our commercial wood pellet boilers are fully automated, making them extremely easy to use. They come equipped with a range of features to ensure reliable, safe and efficient operation, as well as clean combustion. They also have a digital control unit to help ensure that the system is closely monitored at all times, from the supply of fuel right through to heat transfer and ventilation.

Fuelled by biomass

At a time when fossil fuel prices are increasing and concerns are growing over global warming, biomass can be an excellent alternative to oil and gas. It is less prone than fossil fuels to significant price fluctuations, and it is also sustainable. In fact, biomass is considered to be CO2 neutral. This is because when wood is harvested from a sustainable forestry for use in commercial wood pellet boilers, log boilers and so on, it is a renewable source of energy. Also, when the wood is burned, it releases only as much CO2 as the trees took in while they were growing.

Wood burning boilers can therefore make a major contribution to preserving quality of life for future generations

High operating efficiency

With a wood burning boiler, the fuel accounts for around 50 per cent of the total operating costs. This means it pays to choose a high performance model, and to use good quality wood fuel.

It is important to bear in mind that while the initial cost of a wood burning system may be higher than a conventional heating solution, the savings it enables you to make on fuel costs per thermal unit can mean you start saving money within a short period of time.  

Versatile and flexible

Our wood boilers are suitable for use in a wide range of premises, such as hospitals, schools, wood processing plants and district heating networks. They can either cover the entire heating demand or provide the base load when used in conjunction with a gas or oil boiler for peak loads.

Integrated technology

Thanks to our comprehensive range of solutions, it is easy to create a fully integrated system incorporating a wood boiler, oil or gas boiler and individual control technology. This helps you to optimise the performance of your system and achieve maximum efficiency.

Fuel flexibility

There are a wide range of wood fuels available to use with our boilers, each of which has its own costs, storage requirements and calorific value. Whichever fuel type you choose, look out for wood that is good quality, untreated and has a low moisture content.

Our wood heating systems support fuels including:

  • Pellets
  • Wood shavings
  • Wood chips
  • Mixed wood
  • Wood dust

Sustainable, CO2 neutral heating

Thanks to their environmental credentials, wood chip boilers and other biomass boilers are eligible for the government’s Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI). Under this scheme, you can receive quarterly payments based on the units of renewable, clean heat that your boiler produces.
