RDPE Funded Machinery
RDPE GRANT FUNDING
In September 2010 Southern Wood Energy gained approval for RDPE Grant Funding towards 2 new Machines; The BRACKE C16a Accumulating Felling Head and the JENZ HEM 820DL Chipper.
This project is part financed by the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development 2007-2013: Europe investing in rural areas.
The Bracke Forest C16a is a felling head and is used to hold and cut numerous stems of standing timber at a time. This machine differs from others on the market in that its cutting mechanism is a rotating circular saw with tungsten carbide teeth that give a clean cut compared to shears which is more ecological friendly and encourages good regrowth.

JENZ HEM 820DL CHIPPER
With the aid of the RDPE Grant funding, Southern Wood Energy have been able to order a new Jenz Hem 820DL Chipper.
The new chipper will enable us to provide our clients with a higher quality grade of wood chip and will also enable us to increase our production rate, with the Jenz capable of chipping up to 100 tonnes/hour.
