Ashwell Biomass (formerly Engineering Services Limited) is a specialist in providing biomass boiler solutions for businesses, councils, housing trusts, schools, hospitals, farmers and landowners.

Ashwell was established in the UK in 1879 by Frank Ashwell and David Mein Nesbit originally as a coal boiler manufacturer. In the tradition of its founders, Ashwell Biomass identified the change in the market from coal fired systems to biomass fuelled systems and produced conversion kits for existing commercial and industrial coal fired boilers of up to 1.5 megawatts. This enabled new and existing clients to benefit from renewable energy - biomass fuels available providing improved efficiency in excess of 20% as well as low carbon emissions.

Based in Leicester, Ashwell Biomass is now one of the UK’s leading biomass boiler manufacturers and installers of biomass heating and hot water solutions, with over 200 installations in the UK. Our experienced staff pride themselves in producing quality biomass products with efficient customer service.

Our range of biomass boilers is aimed at the domestic, industrial and commercial markets and includes everything from an 8kW system up to a huge 10MW+ solution. This range of boilers allow us to cover a project range of up to 20MW output, whilst burning a huge array of biomass fuels. We can also provide biomass CHP (Combined Heat and Power).

Ashwell remain at the forefront of biomass technology through its continued investment and partnerships for Research and Development, where we look at clean burning technologies and the combustion of alternative fuels.
