Tax relief
Published:  13 September, 2007

For many industrial facilities, the boiler plant consumes the highest proportion of any company's utility bill; even a modestly sized boiler of 5000 Kg/Hr will consume something like £150,000 of gas per annum based on today"s fuel prices. Fortunately, the boiler plant is also an area where it is relatively easy to make significant efficiency improvements, not only that but the government backed ECA (Enhanced Capital Allowance) scheme can offer you up to 100% first year tax relief on your capital expenditure, dramatically reducing the cost of your initial investment.

All companies are watching their finances carefully, as well as trying to become more environmentally friendly and reduce their carbon emissions. According to Adam John, Wellman Robey’s sales and marketing director: "The ECA scheme is proving able to assist many companies when looking to take the 'plunge’ and invest in a new high efficiency boiler plant. Not only that but if you decide to upgrade your existing boiler, with a new burner or flue gas economiser, system improvements may also attract a 0% interest energy efficiency loan from the carbon trust, providing the energy bill savings associated with your energy project are estimated to fully cover the cost of the loan amount within 4 years.”

Wellman Robey, is able to offer a complete range of ECA compliant steam and hot water boilers, together with associated burners and economisers. The company says it offers a free boiler house health check service, carried out by its own team of specialist boiler engineers who can identify areas where you can improve the efficiency of your boiler plant, and supply you with all the details you need to apply for your loan.
