Learners from Coleg Cambria Llysfasi recently got the opportunity to visit Wood Energy Wales at Garthmyn Isaf Farm in the Conwy Valley.

Wood Energy Wales produces and supplies wood chip throughout North Wales, Shrewsbury and Cheshire areas.  Supplying the highest quality G30 20 wood chip and G50 20 wood chip for biomass boilers, and CHP’s.  The wood chip is also used to produce gas to run 3 ‘V8’ engines to produce electricity which is then sold to the national grid, whilst the hot water produced by the engines is used to dry the wood chip.

Glyn Evans, Lecturer at Coleg Cambria Llysfasi who organised the visit said:

“This was a great opportunity for our learners to learn about rural businesses outside of the classroom.”

Huw Owen, from Wood Energy Wales added:

“We were pleased to see the students visit us at the farm. We believe that diversification in rural farming is essential and were delighted to have the opportunity to illustrate this, via our wood chip business, energy supply and wood land schemes. Seeing the students take an interest made the whole visit a worthwhile experience for us and them. We would welcome the college again.”
