Scots biomass specialist unveils exclusive ElectraTherm partnership at Royal Highland Show
Tuesday, 19 June 2018
A leading Scottish name in the supply of renewable, low carbon, low emission energy, and renewable wood fuels, will be showcasing its exclusive partnership with one of the world’s top producers of fuel-free, emission-free electricity at next week’s Royal Highland Show.
Uphall-based Scot Heat & Power is the only Scottish company to offer ElectraTherm’s innovative Power+ Generator that utilises waste heat for efficient clean energy production.
Scot Heat & Power believes that its cost-effective offering will attract strong interest on Stand 189 within the 5th Avenue of the Forestry Area at the annual farming and rural life gathering in Ingliston, taking place from 21 to 24 June.
It is also certain that its exclusive ElectraTherm relationship will inspire fresh innovation going forward, in turn delivering greater value to the UK market.
Organised by the Royal Highland and Agricultural Society of Scotland, the annual show is in its 178th year - and Scot Heat & Power is proud to be taking part for the seventh time.
A global leader in distributed, waste heat to power generation, Bitzer-owned ElectraTherm already has selected installations in the UK - but the deal with Scot Heat & Power marks its first and only Scottish presence. In recent years alone, ElectraTherm has announced new installations in Germany, Italy, Romania and Japan.
Licensed only to Scot Heat & Power north of the border, the Power+ Generator utilises waste heat on applications such as internal combustion engines, biomass boilers, flare gas, geothermal/co-produced fluids, and more.
The flexible generator can be used with standard biomass hot water boilers, utilising low temperature and low pressure Organic Rankine Cycle (ORC) and its proprietary technologies for major efficiencies.
The Power+ can also produce clean electricity from low grade waste heat, and is capable of reaching outputs of up to 110kWe power generation.
Scot Heat & Power’s Managing Director, Malcolm Snowie said: “We are very pleased to be exhibiting once again at the Royal Highland Show, and to be unveiling some of the most innovative technological developments in our field with over 1,000 trade exhibitors and 2,150 livestock competitors expected to be attending over the event’s four days.
“It’s amazing to think that the Royal Highland Show generates some £65million for the local economy and attracts over one million visitors, and we’re very proud to be taking part.
“We are particularly proud to be partnering with ElectraTherm, bringing its leading power generation capabilities exclusively to Scotland.
“The waste heat to power market offers incredible potential. We believe that there is so much more to come and that we now have the opportunity to be at the forefront of that.
“The Power+ fleet has enjoyed considerable global success, and we are certain that can be replicated here for better efficiency and cost savings for commercial users through low maintenance, clean electricity.
“Our presence once more at Ingliston demonstrates the focus that we place on clean power generation where we see a strong avenue of growth for the business.
“We are looking forward to making a strong contribution to the Royal Highland Show, emphasising our significantly expanded offering, with the aim of driving further value and efficiency in the marketplace.
“It’s an exciting time for us to talk about the considerable environmentally sustainable advances that we’ve been able to bring to Scotland as we look to expand our interests further.s
“Part of that expansion will be our further showcasing at the Royal Highland Show of newly acquired vehicles and cutting edge equipment - including a Palfinger long reach material handling crane - that collectively serve to significantly enhance our capabilities.”
The easily installed Power+ technology is capable of benefitting waste heat or process heat users, representing a strong competitive advantage for commercial sites.
Globally, the Power+ fleet exceeds 50 machines in operation and has surpassed 75 years of runtime.
Scot Heat & Power aims to help users take advantage of the financial and environmental benefits of renewable heat and power produced from biomass.
It is one of the few companies in Scotland that designs, installs, and commissions biomass boilers from 60kW to several megawatts, providing on-going maintenance and a fuel delivery service.
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.
