Lord Rayleigh’s Farms Ltd wanted to heat Whitelands Business Centre sustainably and having their own woodland resource made biomass the perfect choice to heat seven business units utilising one biomass boiler.  Nexus Energy were commisioned to design, project manage and install the biomass district heating system.


Nexus Energy Ltd installed a Heizomat RHK-AK 154 (150kW) boiler, fuel feed system and district heating network.  The Nexus Team and Estate Staff worked closely with each other to complete the project on time and on budget.
