Business warned to plan ahead for the winter weather

Businesses across the Humber are being warned not to be caught out this year and to prepare further in advance for all heating and energy requirements, in case of another “Beast from the East” winter.
Goole-based biomass company Y Pellets is advising customers to think ahead given last year’s events, which saw the company delivering thousands of extra tonnes of wood pellets at very short notice to assist UK organisations that had failed to plan or had no contingency procedures in place.
It is now working with existing clients nationwide and across different industries to pre-plan delivery schedules and pre-empt their required pellet stock levels based upon anticipated energy usage should the “Beast” return.
Chris Wilson, general manager of Y Pellets, said: “Despite the weather warnings, some organisations still left it very late to order wood pellets last year, with certain companies being totally caught out by the harsh weather conditions.
“Clients, especially those in more remote or rural locations such as hotel destinations or agriculture producers, as well as those with constant heating demands like residential care homes, schools and public buildings, should start considering now the real possibility that this could happen again and pre-plan as much as possible, estimating their biomass requirements.”
