Organic Fresh Foods Co Biomass Installation


Ben and Lucy at the Organic fresh Foods Co have recently “appointed” a new business assistant called Herbert. Herbert has responsibility for looking after the heating in the business premises and is in fact a wood pellet biomass boiler. Herbert is an Austrian Biotech 25kW MBW manual fill model with a compact footprint. The boiler is linked to a hydraulic separator, distribution manifold and hot water cylinder. The expected annual fuel consumption: Approx. 6-8 tonnes of wood pellets.

This was a turnkey project, space was allocated within the business unit to create the energy centre, which provides heating for the business.

A Biotech boiler and associated equipment was compactly located into a corner of the industrial unit thereby, minimizing loss of space for the business. The use of a manual fill boiler also assisted in minimizing the loss of commercial space that was important for this thriving SME (Small Meduim Enterprise).

Ben and Lucy are delighted with the system: “The system provides heat to the business, (central heating and hot water), to the office, and shop I can confirm that Biofutures could not have been more helpful with putting together a detailed and appropriate specification for the full installation. The entire project management was left to Biofutures on a turnkey basis.”

“Having completed the installation and commissioned the boiler, they helped train me in the boiler’s operation and have been proactive in resolving a few minor (and inevitable) teething problems. The boiler is working fully as designed and is proving extremely economical and trouble free.”
