Biomass Heating Boiler Installation – June 2015



Gastech recently moved to a new larger industrial unit on the Tyne Tunnel trading estate due to expansion of the company. As part of the move had half of the unit converted to office space. With no mains gas available the option of using electric heating was not attractive. We therefore installed a Gilles HPK-RA 20kw wood pellet boiler.


  • Gilles HPK-RA 20kw.
  • Fuel storage Gilles Day Hopper 240kg.
  • 500 litre buffer vessel.
