4 November 2017

Boardlink installs biomass boilers to fuel at its 32,500 square metre facility in based in Hawarden, North Wales, as the company says in the press release received by Lesprom Network.

Replacing its existing oil dependent boilers, the investment of the two Fröling biomass boilers is Boardlink’s first step towards a five year plan to develop the manufacturing operation’s use of only sustainable and renewable energy.

Ben Still, Managing Director, said: “The investment is not only the right thing to do for the business and environment, but it will also improve working conditions for our employees during the winter months as a result of the upgraded and more efficient heating system.”

A bespoke energy plant room has been incorporated into the heart of the factory to house the boilers, which were installed and commissioned in September. Fueled by wood chips, the Fröling biomass boilers are 40% more energy efficient than the oil boilers we replaced, using a supply of CO2 neutral, naturally renewable raw materials.

Boardlink is a privately owned manufacturing company, that focuses on carton board sales, conversion and lamination, as well as paper plates, ready meal trays and industrial grade wiper cloths.
