We would like to introduce Wye Valley Energy, a new Treco partner based on the Welsh borders.

Wye Valley Energy supplies and install biomass heating systems in the Herefordshire, Worcestershire, Shropshire, North Gloucestershire, Powys and Monmouth area.

They sell the Guntamatic range and the Effecta range and the Lindner & Sommerauer range of biomass boiler heating systems (the latter supplied by Rainbow Heat and Power), This gives clients a wide range of choice of features and systems, depending on the requirements of their project.

Farming's in their blood

With a strong agricultural background and an unwavering commitment to the renewable energy industry, you can expect the very best biomass systems from the Wye Valley Energy team.

Their HQ, Humber Court Farm, is  an active 200-acre mixed livestock and arable farm in in Leominster, North Herefordshire and is run by Wye Valley Energy's MD, Richard Collins.

As well as livestock and conventional arable crops, Humber Court Farm grows the energy crop miscanthus under contract. The farm house has been heated with biomass for over eight years now.

Biomass heats the offices

They practice what we preach and are enthusiastic users of renewable energy products.

The farm house at Humber Court has been heated with biomass for over 8 years. The original boiler was decommissioned, to make way for an RHI accredited wood chip district heating scheme.

Today, the farm house and offices at Humber Court Farm are heated by a Lindner and Sommerauer SL 50kW wood chip boiler, fuelled by wood grown on the farm, which is chipped on site directly into a fuel store.

They also have Solar PV on the roof, so please contact them if you would like to see how well either of their own renewable systems are running.

Established, national player with local presence

What's more, you have reassurance in knowing that, as a joint venture with Treco, you are buying the hard-won project management and installation expertise you need for a well-performing biomass boiler heating system.

Wye Valley Energy has a number of installation teams who work on a project basis for the company along with a number of sales and admin staff.
