BHSL and draperHEAT reach agreement for installation of FBC units throughout the UK
BHSL and draperHEAT reach agreement for supply, installation and maintenance of the FBC manure combustion systems throughout the UK.
Jules Marris director of draperHEAT comments “drawing on our many years’ experience in the renewables sector and close working relationship with BHSL over the past 5 years, the Fluidised Bed Combustion (FBC) manure combustion systems offer unrivalled operational experience and give us the confidence to incorporate into our heating systems.
Unlike the other mainstream biomass fuels, poultry manure poses many challenges to ensure smooth operation in the field. Successful combustion of 100% manure with moisture contents varying from 25-45% takes years to perfect, the devil is in the detail!”
Adrian Walker, Sales Director for BHSL in Western Europe, also commented, “Over the last 5 years our Fluidised Bed Combustion technology has been running on several farms in the UK and quietly proving itself, year after year, in terms of operational durability and delivery of ‘free heat’ regardless of the ever-changing cost of purchased heating fuel. Draper were alongside us for these installs in the beginning and are with us now as we roll out further installs across the country. We share common values championing technical innovations and ecological sustainability in the poultry sector.”
