Biomass boilers supplied to Thames Valley Police

Rural Energy has secured a deal to provide two biomass boiler systems for Thames Valley Police.

The self-enclosed 199 kW Heat Pods will help reduce carbon emissions and energy costs at the force’s headquarters at Kidlington in Oxfordshire.

The £145,000 project, which will provide heating for the training complex, is due to save around £9,000 in fuel bills and cut CO2 emissions by at least 64 tonnes a year.

The Heat Pod is an ‘all-in-one’ development which houses a biomass boiler plant room, piping and the fuel store in one self-contained structure.

This design can house Herz boilers up to 995 kW in size and is designed to meet the needs of those with limited space for an existing or a purpose-built plant room and fuel store, the company said.

Rural Energy managaing director Paul Clark said: “We are delighted to be providing two Heat Pods to Thames Valley Police headquarters.

“We are confident that the open week will be both informative and insightful, and it will give a unique opportunity for people to ask questions and gain information while watching a project being constructed.

“It will give a clearer understanding of the technology and how it is implemented, as well as what to consider when designing a project.

“Our aim is to give consultants, construction specialists and all those interested in biomass heating a valuable insight into biomass and what it can deliver for them.”
