NerG wins Solihull biomass-upkeep contract

UK: Deal covers biomass-fired boilers supplying heat and hot water to 23 high-rise blocks with a total of 1,200 flats

Local authority-owned housing company Solihull Community Housing has agreed a deal to look after its biomass-fired heating system. 

According to a contract award notice, issued yesterday, Lincoln-based NerG secured the deal for between £100,000 (€110,700) and £200,000 (€221,000).

The notice explains that NerG beat off competition from four other businesses to win the deal, which also includes the supply of biomass fuel. 

NerG will also manage the biomass-fired system and ensure it remains "fully operational and runs at optimum efficiency", according to the notice.

The deal is set to start next month and run for an initial period until the end of March, 2022. The deal also includes an option to extend the contract by up to a further two years.

Solihull Community Housing was set up in April 2004 to manage Solihull Council’s housing stock. Its biomass-fired system was built in 2015 and supplies heat and hot water to 23 tower blocks containing 1,200 flats.
