Record Bookings for Poultry Biomass Installations

18 April 2014

UK - UK biomass technology expert and poultry specialist Rural Energy has revealed it has a record order book this spring – with work underway to install biomass heating systems that will generate more than 30 megawatts (MW) of renewable heat.

The company has secured a string of deals in the poultry sector for its cutting-edge biomass boilers.

By the end of April, Rural Energy will have received orders for more than 140 biomass systems so far this year for clients, including projects with its partner network. Rural Energy’s growing order book also underlines the continued development and popularity of biomass technology in the UK.

As well as a large contract with leading turkey-farming group Bernard Matthews, current Rural Energy projects also include installations of biomass systems for a number of other poultry sites and bird-rearing operations.

Its Herz range of boilers continues to be industry-leading and the highly-experienced Rural Energy team is delivering quality, engineered solutions for clients in all parts of the country.

Paul Clark, managing director of Rural Energy, said: “We are delighted with the size of our order book this spring and the continued success we are having securing projects in the poultry sector across the UK.

“The demand for biomass technology continues to grow and we remain right at the forefront of the industry. The Herz boilers we are installing are market-leading and are some of the first in the UK to be awarded the all-important emissions certificates from Ofgem.”

He added: “With a generous pipeline for 2014/15, we are on course for a record year of delivery and we are continuing to expand our team to support this.”
