IEL has signed an agreement with Green Belt Ltd, Ireland’s largest private forestry management company, for exclusive access to its woodchip resources for a 15-year period. Green Belt has over 200,000 acres of forestry under its management across Ireland, with a further 10,000 acres on average being planted annually. The majority of Green Belt’s forestry was originally planted in the 1980s, and as such is now mature for extensive harvesting. IEL’s agreement with Green Belt provides the company with a guaranteed supply of Wood Chip which will allow it to enter into long-term (e.g. 10-year) ESCO contracts with customers with assurances for both parties in terms of price and volume of the fuel supply to support those contracts. As part of the agreement, Green Belt is responsible for ensuring the quality of the Wood Chip and for all delivery-related issues and charges to the client’s site, as well as ash removal, although the customer interface remains with IEL throughout.
IEL has exclusive rights to the sale and distribution of Schmid products in UK & Ireland. The Schmid product range covers standard wood biomass boilers from 8kW to 6.0MW, including containerised systems, and customised biomass equipment up to 25MW including Biomass CHP.
