VG energy signs commercial partnership agreement with the world's leading manufacturer of heating technology systems
Under the terms of the agreement, VG Energy will supply, install and maintain Viessmann’s biomass boiler systems ranging in size from 100kW to 1.2MW to its growing customer base nationwide. The deal will mean VG will become the main Viessmann dealer in Scotland and one of only a few Viessmann biomass boiler dealers throughout the UK.
The Viessmann Group is one of the leading international manufacturers of heating, cooling and climate control technologies. Founded in 1917, the family business maintains a staff of approximately 11,400 employees and generates 2.1 billion Euro in annual group turnover. With 27 production divisions in 11 countries, subsidiaries and representations in 74 countries and 120 sales offices around the world, Viessmann is an internationally orientated company and this deal represents a major coup for the Scottish based company.
With over 70 biomass heating systems installed over a 12 month period, ranging in size from 75kW to 300kW, and with an additional 25 biomass installation projects planned to end of August 2014, the addition of Viessmann to an already impressive portfolio of class leading biomass boiler products from manufacturers such as Heizomat and ETA, has earned VG one of the highest regarded reputations in the industry for delivering high quality biomass solutions.
VG Energy, Sales Director, Gordon Smith said: “The agreement we have signed with Viessmann, the world-leading company in heating technology systems, is great news for our growing biomass business and for our customers as we are able to offer a range of biomass products, regarded within the industry as the ‘Rolls Royce’ of boilers. Our business cultures are very similar, both being family run businesses, with a focus on high quality products supported by market leading technical and customer service.”
Jonathan Grist, Commercial Manager of Viessmann UK, said: “For some time we have been looking for a Scottish based partner that not only has a strong track record in successfully delivering multiple renewables and biomass heating projects, but also has the correct infrastructure and resources and level of support. We are confident we have found that company in VG Energy. VG Energy’s biomass division is rapidly growing and we look forward to developing the relationship and increasing the number of Viessmann biomass boiler installations in the UK. We also have a shared view of the market opportunity within Scotland and across the UK.”
Viessmann prides itself on its comprehensive range of individual solutions for efficient systems. It is also a persistent champion of sustainability, running its highly successful 'Efficiency Plus' project at its manufacturing facilities in Allendorf, Germany, to demonstrate how any business or household can actively promote climate protection and reduce their energy bills. The project has already saved 66 percent of fossil energy use and cut CO2 emissions by 80 percent. Viessmann's biomass boiler product portfolio includes the Pyrotec 390 to 1250kW range and the Pyrot 100 to 540kW range.
The Viessmann Pyrot wood-fired boiler (100-540kW) is a fully automatic wood-fired boiler for pellets or chippings with a maximum water content of 35%. The unique rotating combustion chamber ensures optimal performance, while minimising dust emissions at all power levels.
