The pioneering renewable energy hub at Glenskinno Farm with the largest wood chip drying facility in North East Scotland is opening its doors for the second time to welcome agricultural and rural business owners from across Scotland.

The open day, on Saturday (April 2), is hosted by the Gall Family, who own the Montrose-based farm, in partnership with Absolute who installed the biomass solutions and wind turbine on site.

This is an opportunity to see five revolutionary Biomass boilers in action drying the wood chip.

Iain Gall, of Glenskinno Farm, said: “Our partnership with Absolute has enabled us to produce our own wood fuel and reduce our energy costs. Our last open day was a huge success and we want to continue to share our experience with others to demonstrate the opportunities that renewable energy can bring to their business.”

Tom Newall, managing director at Absolute, said: “Working with the Gall family, we’ve developed a series of tailored renewable energy solutions for the farm. We’re proud of how we have supported them to grow their business and look forward to working with them for many years to come.

“This open day is a great opportunity for us to showcase how our renewable energy products can support rural and agricultural businesses to diversify and grow.”
