Locate have been working for and with Buccleuch Bioenergy as part of a package to deliver woodchip boilers with integrated fuel supply arrangements.

These carbon neutral systems not only improve the environmental performance of heating systems when they replace oil, gas or other fossil fuel based systems, they are highly competitive economically, usually saving the Client money in the short and long term. In addition, fuel supply is not subject to the vagaries of world oil markets, the risk of severe and crippling price rises, and of course the fuel can be supplied locally.

The first work undertaken by Locate was for a proposed woodchip boiler for the Aviemore Hilton (pictured). In common with others, this featured a retractable roof and ‘moving’ floor technology to enable cost effective bulk delivery by lorry.

The most recent project has been for Gleneagles Hotel in Auchterarder, Perthshire.
