Broxburn biomass specialist set to unveil major Swedish partnership

New relationship to inspire fresh innovation and deliver greater value to the UK market

Broxburn-based Scot Heat & Power is set to unveil an exclusive new partnership with Swedish bioheating specialist Jernforsen at Glasgow’s All-Energy Exhibition and Conference this week as it celebrates a multi-million pound pipeline of new projects.
The biomass energy specialist believes its new relationship will inspire fresh innovation and, in turn, deliver greater value to the UK market.
Both companies will be on stand C31 at All-Energy – the UK’s largest renewable energy event taking place at the SEC across 10 and 11 May – where Jernforsen’s Managing Director, Magnus Holmgren, will reveal their new collective expertise.
Jernforsen has delivered more than 1,000 plants to clients across the world since it was founded in 1984, including working closely with Swedish state university Linnéuniversitetet for nearly 20 years. It has increasingly invested in smaller cogeneration plants of up to 5MWe, which it sees as a key growth market.
Now Scot Heat & Power is leveraging Jernforsen’s significant know-how for UK projects, including wood processing, pellet production, and WID-compliant boilers.
Together, the two companies hope to realise lower operating costs, higher efficiency and greater reliability for clients through the pooling of their 40 years’ experience in the market.
Scot Heat & Power meanwhile continues to enhance its own offering of highly efficient wood chip/wood pellet-fuelled boilers, specialising in 100Kw to 6MW biomass boilers, low temperature hot water boilers, steam applications, WID-compliant boilers, CHP, and district heating applications.
Amid sustained investment in its operations, including multiple depots across Scotland, Scot Heat & Power recently established a new base in Cumbria.
The company is also poised to announce a pipeline of new multi-million pound sustainable contracts in the coming weeks.
It’s also set to diversify further with the introduction of an arboricultural arm specialising in rural estate management, which will be boosted by the appointment of a professional Chartered Forester who is joining Scot Heat & Power this month.
The company will be displaying one of its new BMI walking floor trailers at All-Energy – a first for the event – after adding to its already substantial dedicated biomass delivery fleet. The trailer can be seen on stand C50.
Scot Heat & Power supplies premium quality wood pellets, produced to stringent standards in accordance with the requirements of boilers, registered on the Biomass Suppliers List (BSL), and certified as ENplus A1.
Since its launch in 2001, All-Energy has provided industry suppliers, experts and thought-leaders from the renewable energy supply chain with the opportunity to connect with new customers, increase their sales opportunities and expand business networks – and Scot Heat & Power is delighted to make its debut at the event.
Scot Heat & Power’s Managing Director, Malcolm Snowie, said: “This will be our first time exhibiting at All-Energy and we are pleased to be doing so with our exciting Jernforsen partnership announcement which we believe will deliver wide benefits to both companies and clients.
“Like Jernforsen, our products are innovative, technically sophisticated, but simple and reliable to run, so the relationship is a natural one for us that we are certain will continue to deliver value, providing the most effective solutions that biomass and steam energy provides.
“Scot Heat & Power in particular is targeting fresh growth and is set to diversify into arboriculture, while maintaining a key focus on our core specialisms which remain the lifeblood of the business. In fact, we are set to yield several multi-million pound opportunities in the very near future that we look forward to announcing.
“It’s therefore an exciting time for us to talk about the considerable environmentally sustainable advances that we are now able to bring to the market as we look to further grow our interests.
“We see All-Energy as a significant strategic step in that direction as we look to further expansion both north and south of the border.”
Scot Heat & Power currently supplies fuel and operates large boilers on behalf of clients including Queen Margaret University in Edinburgh, St Andrews University, Aboyne Academy in Aberdeen, The State Hospital, Carstairs, and The Gleneagles Hotel.
It chiefly provides heating solutions to large commercial industry across food and drink, waste management, housing associations, public sector hospitals, prisons, schools, universities, hotels and leisure facilities, and more.
