Firm lands £3m boiler deal

A green energy company will be the exclusive agent for a biomass boiler manufacturer in a deal worth £3m.

The deal will see Rural Generation install KWB Biomass Heating Systems in Ulster and Connacht.

Rural Generation said its renewable energy systems helped clients “significantly reduce” their heating bills and carbon |emissions.

KWB boilers run on wood chips or pellets, and provide energy from 15 to 300 KW.

Tom Brennan, managing director of Rural Generation said: “We are delighted to have been chosen as the exclusive agents for KWB energy systems in Ulster and |Connacht.

“KWB is a European leader in the field of biomass heating, and is renowned for its innovative ideals, intensive research, and continuous development.

“We look forward to working with the KWB team, and ensuring that more customers in Northern Ireland can discover the benefits of biomass heating.”

Rural Generation has installed systems for domestic, commercial, and agricultural clients around Ireland.

Mr Brennan said South West College in Omagh had benefited from a reduction in heating bills of 30% since its boiler was installed.

The company expects the new contract to double the number of biomass boilers it installs.
