Contract wins lead to strong growth for re:heat

Alnwick-based re:heat saw turnover hit £3.8m last year and is eyeing further growth after securing a number of major contracts.

The contracts include supplying renewable heating technology to a National Trust property and a care home.

re:heat is now predicting a 50% rise in the volume of consultancy work in the year ahead as it moves to meet demand for its services from regional and national partners.

The company was founded by directors Neil Harrison and Ben Tansey in 2011 to help businesses of all sizes convert from fossil fuels to sustainable, low carbon biomass heating systems.

It helps customers with purchasing biomass boilers, designing systems, fuel supply logistics and material handling, fault-finding and problem resolution.

Harrison said that the company's success is built on specialising in key markets where an in-depth understanding of the issues and specialist technology has paid dividends.

He said: “We are dedicated specialists, committed to building long term relationships in a sector where there’s a general lack of expertise and a growing demand for the specific advantages renewable heating sources provide.

“We are supporting businesses through the RHI scheme, helping them to unlock the potential of the latest biomass energy technologies. This can support growth and expansion through the provision of reliable, low cost and sustainable energy.

“We are now well placed to expand both the business and scope of services we offer to secure our targets, further cementing our reputation for innovation and added value solutions this year and beyond.”

re:heat has also recently completed major impact studies for the Department of Energy and Climate Change, and has supported Argyll & Bute and Aberdeen City Councils since their establishment.
