My name is David Vellacott and I have been involved in the biomass boiler business since 2006. I started in the biomass boiler industry with a company called Woodenergy Ltd as a boiler installation engineer. I have been involved in hundreds of installations around the United Kingdom and Ireland with Binder and Hargassner boilers. I was asked if I would like to become the service and maintenance engineer for Woodenergy which became my regular role.
In 2013 I moved to a company called Hoval Ltd who are based in Newark, Nottinghamshire. I was South West based working as their only biomass service and maintenance engineer. This role also involved travelling around the country, mainly in and around the London area and to the North of England around the Doncaster and York areas, with various others scattered around the UK. Working at Hoval Ltd I gained experience servicing and maintaining their STU boilers and the Biolyt range of boilers.
Customer Care Champion
As many of these boilers were based in schools I am DBS checked and hold current SSSTS and CSCS certificates, along with lone working, manual handling and electrical safety and lockout procedure certificates. During my time at Hoval Ltd I became their first ever customer care Champion.
