Uphall-based Scot Heat & Power has secured an exclusive licence to market the ElectraTherm Power+ generator in Scotland.

US-based ElectraTherm already has two installations in the UK, but the deal with Scot Heat & Power marks its first Scottish presence. In recent months, ElectraTherm has announced new installations in Germany, Italy, Romania and Japan.

The Power+ Generator is a flexible electricity generator that 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 fuel-free, emission-free electricity from low grade waste heat, and is capable of reaching outputs of up to 110kWe power generation.

Scot Heat & Power 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.

In 2014, it also acquired Buccleuch BioEnergy, taking over the service contracts, including fuel supply, for biomass facilities installed at Gleneagles Hotel, Aberdeen Royal Infirmary and Queen Margaret University, Edinburgh.
