Thorngrove 250-kW Biomass Boiler

4th June 2019 – 18th June 2019

A 250-kW class biomass-fuelled district heat scheme is needed for a garden centre near Gillingham.

Note that this is a smaller version of a system which was advertised for in January and February 2019. If you submitted a quote for a 400-kW system, please resubmit with a quote for a 250-kW one.

The details of the opportunity, including how to find out more, can be found here. The specification mentioned can be found here. Please note that it is for the 400-kW system, and so mentions 2 x 200-kW boilers. Only one boiler, of 250kW, is now required, with only one flue and one fuel feed. The remaining details remain accurate, though there may be some flexibility with the size of the main district heat pipe. The schematics mentioned can be found here.

If you are having any difficulty accessing these documents, please contact Derek Moss on 07990 442730 or

It won't just be Pips Poundbury 's customers who will benefit from the sunny weather this summer… 😎

During the build of this café & community space on #TheGreatField in #Poundbury - we helped Alcohol Education Trust install solar panels on the roof and battery storage inside. So the charity really will be making the most of Dorset's sunshine this year ☀️ 🔋

And on those cooler days, when customers crave a warming bowl of soup, the #PiP will be heated by an air-source heat pump!
