Manufacturing Facilities and Plant

Sustainability at BHC
We currently have 10 Biomass Units installed at our base in
Carnwath to heat our offices, workshop and paint facility using
locally sourced timber and woodchips. Our first 12 months have
generated 4.6 million KW of heat that would have been otherwise
generated using fossil fuels such as Gas or Oil.
In October 2015 we installed and commissioned our 500KW Wind turbine. This has produced 947,000 KWH or an average of 118,375 KWH per month. Therefore our estimated annual usage of electric is 1.6 million KWH or 133,000 KWH per month. This means we are already 90% self-sufficient on electric and close to achieving our goal of 100%.
