Biomass Fuels Expansion at Busy Essex Farm Shop and Cafe

An ETA HACK 50 located in an existing building provides heating for farm shop, cafe and farm house.

A purpose built top loading chip store was constructed next to the boiler house with an Asgard Biomass fabricated sliding roof for ease of delivery. Wood chip is augered directly to the boiler from the 15 cubic metre store. Low cost chip supplied locally means that there are significant fuel savings.

The low cost heat supplied by a biomass system and regular RHI payments can greatly assist the profitability of a business proposal.

Sunken Chip Store at Equine Rehabilitation Centre

An ETA HACK 90 located in a new shed extension provides heating for farmhouse, conference centre and equine centre.

The system was designed for easy chip delivery using a standard tipping trailer.  Wood chip is produced on an adjacent property, transported to site and tipped directly in to the sunken chip store. The chip is augured to the boiler using a 2-stage auger arrangement. .

Asgard Biomass works closely with customers to find the right fuel handling and delivery system.

The Asgard Biomass Log Kiln

A fully engineered solution produces kiln dried logs profitably for a national firewood producer

Air temperature, flow rate and moisture content are continuously monitored and adjusted to maximise the efficiency of the drying process. The versatile Farm 2000 biomass boiler supplies hot water to the kiln’s fully integrated air handling unit.

A Farm 2000 HT80R log boiler was used as the primary energy unit for the Log Kilns; they are RHI compliant, and importantly utilise a readily available supply of logs as a fuel source. So in addition to receiving RHI income, low cost fuel is used to operate the boiler.

The Asgard Biomass Log kiln is available for immediate installation. Call 01767262470

Bedford Business Relocation Provides Opportunity for Green Energy Upgrade

A progressive Bedfordshire business opts for an ETA HACK 199 kW pellet boiler with a Collinson external pellet silo to heat their new premises

The 20 tonne pellet silo is located adjacent to the main building and pellets are augered directly to the boiler located within. The boiler provides heating for the manufacturing facilities and office space replacing several old gas boilers.

Businesses should always consider biomass heat when replacing old oil or gas systems. In addition to being a very attractive financial proposition biomass helps to dramatically reduce the carbon footprint.

Stockwood Discovery Centre, Luton

95kW ETA PE-K replaces poor performing biomass installation

A biomass boiler was installed in the centre some years ago. Unfortunately the boiler and installation were of poor quality and the system never really performed satisfactorily. Asgard Biomass worked with Luton Borough Council to improve the performance of the boiler however all attempts failed so it was decided to install a replacement.

Asgard Biomass has replaced a number of old or poor performing biomass boilers recently. Good quality boiler, system design and installation are vital for an efficient and reliable system.

Cricket Bats and Biomass in Cambridgeshire

A 90kW ETA Hack heats a farm house cottage and workshop using chipped willow

The ETA HACK boilers have proved very popular with customers burning chipped willow, this fenland farmer has many years of using biomass boilers to heat various properties and is a strong advocate of the ETA boilers.

“The HACK boiler is more than capable of coping with the variation in chip size and moisture content”




Essex Nursing Home Turns to Biomass

A four bay garage gets a make over for two ETA 95kW wood pellet boilers and pellet store.

Biomass is the perfect solution when it comes to the high heat demands of residential and care homes. An unused building can be upgraded to house the biomass system, and highly efficient insulated underground pipe used to deliver the hot water to the home. A two boiler ETA system is a similar cost to a single boiler system and a shared flue provides extra savings.

The two boiler cascade system ensures a very flexible installation, with heat delivery from 30 to 190kW
