One of Ireland’s leading wood energy companies has teamed
up with a world-famous stud farm to provide a cleaner, greener
solution to some of its heating needs, right on its own doorstep.
Natural Power Supply has fitted an energy cabin at
the world-renowned Coolmore Stud - a hub which will allow
a house on the estate to be heated using wood chips and solar
It is one of the latest green initiatives at Coolmore, an
extensive stud farm in County Tipperary which lies on some
of Ireland’s very best land. The business is internationally
recognised as the ‘Home of Champions’.
Coolmore already features an extensive bio-filtering waste
water system through the use of willows. Willow consumes all
the waste water at Coolmore as part of its natural growth
cycle – a process which is an effective, sustainable and environmentally
friendly way of treating a waste product and one which does
not allow the produce to re-enter the human food chain.
Natural Power Supply was the first company to demonstrate
bio-filtration on a large scale using willow in 2003. Managing
director James Kennedy said that the company has helped Coolmore
to go one step further by having a renewable heat energy source.
“We were delighted to work with the Coolmore team and advise
them on the best system to suit their needs. The energy cabin
features all the elements of their renewable heating source
at one hub. Coolmore, like a lot of large enterprises, was
once heavily reliant on fossil fuels, such as oil. This switch
from oil is commendable and we hope even more large operations
might follow suit” - Mr Kennedy said.
