Anderton Centre to launch new biomass heating system

Chorley based outdoor activities centre, the Anderton Centre, run by the charity Lancashire Outdoors Activity Initiative has recently installed a state of the art biomass heating system. The system will be officially fired up by the Mayor of Chorley, along with the High Sheriff of Lancashire on the 2nd of November at 10.30am.

As well as providing an extensive range of water and land based activities to schools and community groups, the centre also offers high quality residential accommodation and conferencing facilities along with management training. The biomass system will be used to heat and supply the hot water for all the accommodation plus the kitchens and the outdoor learning zone.

Biomass heating systems provide a green and sustainable method of generating heat, normally using wood chips or pellets to fire the boilers. As a fuel, wood chips/pellets are considered to be an extremely eco friendly and low carbon fuel as the trees used to create the chips/pellets are replanted.

The system was installed by one of the country’s leading biomass companies, Ashwell Biomass. The Anderton Centre selected Leicester based Ashwell Biomass as they were impressed with the knowledge and support the team offered on the design of the system.

David Coyne, Managing Director of Ashwell Biomass commented: “The Anderton Centre project was one we were very keen to be involved with. The centre is in a stunning setting on the side of a reservoir, surrounded by trees, so a biomass system sits well with their aims as an organisation as well as their beautiful location”.

Sarah Pattison, Business Manager of The Anderton Centre added: “Both the charity and the centre are about the outdoors and getting people outside to experience the wonderful opportunities nature provides. Installing a heating system that would simply burn more fossil fuels was something we wanted to avoid. A sustainable, biomass system is an excellent fit with the whole ethos of our operation. We are delighted with our environmentally friendly heating system and extremely impressed with the service we’ve had from Ashwell Biomass.”

The official launch event, which is expected to run from 10.30 am until 2 pm on the 2nd of November, will include refreshments and a buffet lunch at the centre. Please contact Sarah Pattison on 01257 484220 for more details and to book your place.
