TG Group enter the biomass market
Company launches Renewable Energy section with opening of new £4.5 million biomass plant
ENVIRONMENTAL experts at Tudor Griffiths Group have unveiled a brand-new addition to the business following an investment of £4.5 million.
The Shropshire-based company has now launched TG Renewable Energy – a facility which will complement its existing service, as part of its TG Enviro division.
To deliver the new service, the company has opened a new 3,000 sq metre on-site biomass plant and drying warehouse, which houses seven 1MW boilers.
Managing director Tudor Griffiths said: ‘Renewable and sustainable energy is a key objective for the TG Group, and we are delighted to see the new plant up and running.
‘It will play a key role in the Renewable Energy section of our TG Enviro Division, which also includes skip hire and waste-management recycling.
‘We are committed to producing the highest-quality premium chip and Grade A shred for the biomass boiler market, and the new plant will help us to offer the very best products to our customers.
‘Thanks to the size of the new facility, we can also offer a drying service at the site for timber, dry feed grains, pulses and contract woodchip drying.’
The boilers are fuelled by shredded Grade A timber, which has been recovered for recycling, and heat the seven perforated floors to dry the products, which are supplied to the residential and commercial markets.
‘We’re constantly developing the services we offer to our customers, and the new biomass plant will be a welcome addition to our head office site,’ said Mr Griffiths.
