Scots farmers harvest Absolute renewable energy crop

Absolute Solar and Wind -installed Frohiling biomass boilerThe renewable energy hub at Glenskinno Farm – which operates the largest wood chip drying facility in north east Scotland – is holding an open day to showcase its new CHP system next week.

Absolute Solar and Wind partnered with the Gall family at Glenskinno Farm to enable them to diversify their business through installing five biomass boilers as well as a state of the art CHP system and wind turbine.

By installing the biomass, CHP and wind turbine on site, this project has provided a platform for the landowners to grow their business and become more sustainable by reducing costs and generating significant new income.

Iain Gall, Glenskinno Farm said: “We have increased our capacity to deliver at the farm by 30% through the installation of our new CHP system.”

Graham Provest, Managing Director, Absolute said: “Glenskinno Farm has a Fröling Boiler biomass system, ESPE CHP system and 100kw Northern Power wind turbine, which have enabled the family to grow their business and become more sustainable by reducing costs and generating significant new income.”
