BHSL and draperGROUP sign co-operation agreement
BHSL has announced that it has signed a co-operation agreement with draperVENT to market, install and operate its’ range of fluidised bed combustion solutions in the UK.
Irish based poultry manure to energy technology specialist, BHSL, has announced that it has signed a co-operation agreement with draperVENT, one of the UK’s leading experts in poultry house heating and ventilation, to market, install and operate its’ range of fluidised bed combustion solutions in the UK.
In 2011, BHSL installed its first unit at Uphouse Farm, Norfolk in 2011. According to BHSL, the business has been instrumental in the development and commercial roll-out of this technology following the introduction of EU Regulation 592/2014 (in 2014) which permitted, under specific conditions, the on-farm combustion of untreated poultry manure to generate sustainable on-farm heat. Over the past 12 months, BHSL has installed over £11 million worth of equipment in the UK to a variety of broiler and layer installations.
– We are delighted to have joined forces with Paul and his team. The combination of our joint expertise in manure to heat technology and draperVENT’s well-respected know-how in ventilation and climate control systems makes for a very compelling proposition to any poultry farmer with an interest in energy cost management, said Adrian Walker, Sales Director for BHSL in the UK and Western Europe in a statement.
Dorset-based draperVENT is a specialist in the design, supply, installation and operation of sophisticated ventilation and climate control systems for the UK poultry sector. Through its sister company, draperHEAT, multiple poultry house heating installations have been successfully carried out in recent years with various technologies including LPG, wood pellets, woodchip, waste wood, straw and most recently poultry manure. draperVENT first worked alongside BHSL when they supplied their AVICARE HW System in the poultry sheds at Uphouse Farm, Norfolk in 2011.
– This agreement is the latest in a series of strategically important technology relationships we have signed recently. We are excited to be working alongside BHSL and to be in the trusted position to bring this fantastic technology to market. We believe the benefit of abundant ‘on-farm’ free heating fuel is a proposition that our clients will find extremely compelling – especially so with the newly launched 500kW containerised heating modules, said Paul Draper, Managing Director of draperGROUP.
