Over a 12 month period Myriad Heat and Power installed nearly 4MW of renewable heating into 26 poultry sheds on five sites in North Yorkshire.
 
Oakland Farms is an integrated broiler business supplying chickens to retailers via its processing partners. The poultry company initially decided to implement a biomass scheme at a single site, to cut fuel costs, benefit from the government’s Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) scheme and improve the growing environment of its chicks by minimising CO2 and other harmful emissions in the sheds.
 
Following a successfull installation at Site 1, Myriad Heat and Power was approached to supply and install biomass boilers at a further four locations, bringing the total number of sheds being heated through renewable technology to 26.
 
For the following projects Myriad Heat and Power worked collaboratively with the other heating system installers (Bridge Greenhouses and PW Mains) to ensure successful completion. This included improved overall project planning and flexibility on both delivery dates and installation times. In order to fit in with the poultry crop rotation and minimise any possible “down time” from the works, Myriad Heat and Power worked under pressure at 3 of the sites to ensure supply, installation, commissioning and full completion of the heating systems in an extremely short timeframe. Site works were condensed and 2 sites were completed in the same week in March 2014.
 
INVESTING IN THE FUTURE
Myriad Heat and Power has taken full responsibility for the continued successful working of the biomass boiler systems on all five poultry rearing sites, providing free re-training visits as well as checking the efficient performance of the heating installations and confidence of the trained operatives every 4-6 weeks.
