Our Background

Our installation arm markets, sells and installs Solar PV systems, Biomass Boilers and Combined Heat and Power (CHP). In relation to Biomass and CHP it was a natural progression for our business to set up a new company to process, dry and sell woodchip to the Biomass and CHP market place. We sell top quality wood chip to our own installation customers, and also to the wider Biomass market place.

Our Biomass Wood Chip

Our woodchip is BSL authorised, for full RHI compliance and Woodsure accredited. By adjusting the cutting depth of the blades and screen sizes on our machinery, we can produce a full range of chip specifications – whether G30, G50 or G100, or P16 or P45.We can supply 15%-40% moisture contents, for whatever suits your Boiler. We also only process virgin timber – this means no recycled timber, ensuring we produce premium quality woodchip, as well as maximising calorific value.

We have two bases, one in Irvine and one in the Scottish Highlands at Grantown-on-Spey, this ensures that we can cover a vast area for our customers, in a variety of delivery vehicles to best suit the customer, including bulk tippers and walking floor lorries.

Quality Assurance

We are BSL approved producers. We achieve a quality chip by not only using the necessary machinery, which must be carefully and regularly maintained, but by using fully trained and experienced operators.

Our Quality and Monitoring Policy provides useful guidance on how best to store timber and wood chip, ensuring that together we can achieve a premium quality product. In this we also detail what it is we do at the processing stage to ensure you get maximum production, without compromising on quality.

We have found that sustainable round timber supply is essential for our business and as such we have long term contracts for supply of raw timber to meet our wood chip requirements, in which case we always have a buffer stock.

Please note, we only process virgin timber. Waste or recycled wood is inherent with a high risk of damage to our machinery, just as it is to your boiler and equipment.

Additionally, with our close affiliation with all Forestry and Woodland providers in Scotland, we firmly believe in sustainability and only take timber from sustainable sources.

Customer Service

Our high levels of Customer Service ensure we satisfy both private and commercial clients. The majority of our customers are hotels and leisure centres and farms and industrial, who cannot afford to have downtime on their heating systems. Therefore, it is imperative that we “Do what is says on the tin” and make planned deliveries in a timely manner to our customers’ satisfaction.
