Our team are able to build your specification with you, complete full CAD drawings and create solutions for you. We also have the following other solutions available:

The biomass fuel is often waste wood in either wooden pellet or wood chip form. The fuel is then fed from the fuel store into the boiler room via augers which connect through apertures in the container walls. Usually, customers install computer controls to ensure just the right amount of fuel is fed into the boiler to enable efficient heating with minimum emissions. Hot water and heating is then linked to the existing distribution systems. Extra doors with louvres are usually installed to maximise air flow and allow access for servicing the boiler. Sliding roof designs can be incorporated to enable wood chip to be delivered by tipper lorry or pellet inlet pipes can be installed to be fed by a pressurised system. There are many benefits of having a biomass container, including:

  • Simple and efficient installation methods.
  • Minimum disruption during installation, removal and re-siting.
  • Extensive environmental benefits.
  • Economical benefits.
  • Sustainability benefits.

Biomass Case Studies

Delivering Your Biomass Container

We have a small team of trusted hauliers working for us here in the UK. Deliveries normally take place between 7am-8pm, Monday to Friday, however we can work outside of these times if so wished. We also provide site visits to those more tricky delivery areas, all members of our team have passed their CSCS card test. This means that they are able to visit sites in order to reduce accidents and drive up on-site efficiency. Should you require your container for shipping purposes, we can provide you with a CSC Verification Certificate, our professionals will test and certify your new or used 40ft container to ensure it is structurally sound and safe to ship your cargo by vessel.
