Fort heat­ing spe­cial­ist un­der new own­er­ship

The Oban Times - - News -

FORT WIL­LIAM biomass heat­ing spe­cial­ist HWEn­ergy is un­der new own­er­ship.

Ag­gre­gated Mi­cro Power (AMP) Hold­ings plc has be­come the ma­jor­ity share­holder in the com­pany, which cur­rently em­ploys 45 peo­ple.

It is said the com­pany will re­main an in­de­pen­dent and stand­alone busi­ness.

AMP, an en­ergy com­pany spe­cial­is­ing in the sale of wood fu­els through its For­est Fu­els busi­ness and the de­vel­op­ment of en­ergy projects in­clud­ing biomass boiler ESCOs (En­ergy Sup­ply Con­tracts), cur­rently has £66 mil­lion of en­ergy as­sets un­der man­age­ment.

Bruno Ber­ardelli, man­ag­ing di­rec­tor of HWEn­ergy, said: ‘ We have en­tered into this re­la­tion­ship with AMP as we be­lieve this pro­vides a range of op­por­tu­ni­ties for our clients, our com­pany and our stake­hold­ers.’

Es­tab­lished in 2003, the firm has in­stalled more than 300 com­mer­cial-sized biomass in­stal­la­tions from Shet­land to Lon­don. The com­pany has its head­quar­ters in Fort Wil­liam, with an­other of­fice in Bell­shill. HWEn­ergy is en­ter­ing into the part­ner­ship with For­est Fu­els to grow a biomass ser­vice and heat sup­ply busi­ness in Eng­land and Wales. The two com­pa­nies will be man­aged from HWEn­ergy’s Fort Wil­liam head­quar­ters.

Mr Ber­ardelli added: ‘AMP’s vi­sion for the de­vel­op­ment of de­cen­tralised en­ergy pro­vi­sion is one which we be­lieve will ben­e­fit the econ­omy of the coun­try, help re­duce car­bon emis­sions from en­ergy pro­duc­tion and pro­vide nu­mer­ous ben­e­fits to clients.
