AT ROADSIDE
= 3000 TONNES

DRY CHIP
= 2000 TONNES
WOODCHIP OUTPUT
MAXIMUM OUTPUT =
100 TONNES OF DRY CHIP PER DAY
I.E. 400,000 kWhrs OF HEAT
TYPICAL HOUSE WILL USE APPROX 100 kWhrs
TYPICAL PRIMARY SCHOOL WILL USE APPROX
5000 kWhrs

ARTICULATED LORRY
HI-LIFT TRAILER
BULK TRAILER
BLOWER TRAILER
BULK BAGS
BOILER INSTALLATIONS
CHOICE BETWEEN –
WOODCHIP OR WOOD PELLET
DRY WOODCHIP – LESS THAN 25% MC
 GENERALLY LARGER INSTALLATIONS
 LARGER FUEL STORAGE FACILITIES
 LOWER FUEL COSTS THAN PELLETS
AT PRESENT. AROUND 3.5p/kWhr
 LONG SHELF LIFE
WET WOODCHIP- ABOVE 30% M.C.
 VERY LARGE BOILERS & POWER
STATIONS
 MORE DELIVERIES PER ANNUM
 MORE CONTAMINATION
 SHORT SHELF LIFE DUE TO
COMPOSTING & MOULDING
 PRICE SIMILAR TO DRY WOODCHIP
WOOD PELLETS





IDEAL FOR SMALLER BOILER
INSTALLATIONS
LESS BULKY
MORE EXPENSIVE – AROUND 4.5p/kWhr
CAN BREAK DOWN IF GET DAMP OR
WET
LIMITED SHELF LIFE
BOILERS INSTALLED – 10KW TO 600KW

WHAT SIZE DO I NEED AND WHEN DO I
NEED HEAT?
HOW SOPHISTICATED DO I NEED?
FUEL STORAGE AND DELIVERY?
BACK-UP SERVICE?
GO AND LOOK AT INSTALLED EXAMPLES
ASK QUESTIONS
DOES IT COMPLY WITH THE LOCAL
ENVIRONMENTAL CRITERIA?
HEAT SUPPLY CONTRACTS
FACTORS TO CONSIDER
 COST OF BOILER AND INFRASTRUCTURE
 PRICE FOR FUEL
 COST OF DELIVERY
 COST OF MAINTENANCE
 COST OF CLEANING/DE-ASHING
 SINKING FUND
 PROFIT
THANK YOU.
