The Self-Contained Boiler House

Turnbull & Scott offer a complete power unit supplied as a self-contained boiler house. Our biomass, oil or gas fired options supply a customised output and can be used in any external location. Everything is ready for connection to the pipework, and normally this can be commissioned with in a day. Ideal replacement for ageing equipment, as back up heat source or to avoid ‘shutdown’ during conversion to woodchip.
