Biofuel Boiler

75kW Heizomat Boiler 300Joanna and Nick Kemp own a farm near New Abbey in Dumfries and Galloway. The farm business operates a farm, woodland and several rental properties in the town.

We were contacted by the client as they wished to change the way they heated the central farm facility. The existing oil fired boiler provided around 98,550 kWht, and used @4,000 litres of oil per annum they were keen to change to a wood fired Biofuel Boiler.

After a discussion with the client, a 75kW Heizomat Boiler was supplied through an approved biofuel boiler on-seller (V G Energy Ltd). The project is fuelled by wood pellet, chip and waste wood from the clients’ existing woodland.

The project is in receipt of a guaranteed income stream of 8.6p/kWht over a 20 year period through the RHI Scheme.

The Technology Cost and Installation was £45,903.

Excel-A-Rate Business Services Ltd (EBS) provided funding over a seven year term for the programme and gained approval within fourteen days of proposal submission. Funding documentation was signed off by the client twelve days later and the equipment was delivered into the UK twelve weeks after order.

Throughout the program there was a variable amount of additional heat delivery pipe-work to the various buildings around the central farm facility. It was finally decided that the client required heat delivery piping to all sectors of the farm and this caused some delivery and logistic delays.

Throughout the process, (aside from providing a sustainable funding solution), EBS supported the client with advice on:

  • Appropriate Technology Selection;
  • Pipe-work Extensions;
  • Discussions with UK Technology Importer and On-Seller;
  • Support with Financial and Commercial Advice on:
  1. VAT;
  2. Inland Revenue;
  3. Council Tax.

A satisfaction Survey was requested by our Admin Department.
