Project Solution

Spring 2014 saw Myriad Heat and Power secure a considerable contract to supply 179 Herz Firematics to a giant poultry grower who rear over 7 million turkeys a year on their farms across Norfolk, Suffolk and Lincolnshire.


The client was keen to meet carbon reduction targets set by the Government, intending on becoming self-sufficient from green energy as a business by 2016 and carbon neutral as a whole by 2020. They have already invested in other technologies for electricity such as wind and solar, and then turned to Myriad Heat and Power to meet their heating needs.

Part of a £24.5 million development, the project was worth over £4 million to Myriad Heat and Power and follows more than 12 months of careful planning with renewable financers Lumicity. Now the Herz Firematics' have been installed into more than 21 of the turkey group’s farm sites.

Lumicity put together a specialist consortium to deliver what is thought to be the biggest roll-out of biomass in the UK ever. Specialist contractors included Armstrong, Baxi Commercial and PPS.

Myriad Heat and Power installed the Herz boilers into packaged plant rooms constructed by Armstrong of Baxi/PPS.

The 179 x 150kW or 199kW Firematics were housed in purpose-built, prefabricated containers. Doing this reduced any disruption on site, allowing the turkey farms to continue operating normally. Each site has an average of eight or nine poultry sheds, with the largest having 34.
