Enerpower have installed a 550Kw Gilles Biomass Boiler System at Standish Sawmills in Co. Offaly.  Standish Sawmills were looking for a boiler that gave them the ability to power dry kilns at their Co. Offaly based factory.

Standish Sawmills is one of Ireland’s leading producers of timber products. Owners Tom and John Standish are the fourth generation of Standish family operating a sawmill business at Leap Castle, Co.
