Canterbury District Health Board currently operate two biomass boilers, with a third expecting to become operational during 2021. These boilers are primarily used to provide heating and hot water to the hospital sites in Christchurch, along with some steam used for Sterile Services and Catering equipment.

What we are buying and why:
We require value for money, reliable and secure biomass fuel supply for the proposed Christchurch Hospital Campus boiler, preferably delivered from a depot in Christchurch or reasonably close to it. Security of supply is critical to us, especially in times of disaster, so that we can continue to provide health services. We are seeking suppliers that are able to demonstrate that they can supply a large portion of the approximately 315,000 GJs of wood waste biofuel and/or 20,000GJs of wood chip that we require per annum by mid-2021.

We welcome solutions that make suitable use of resources that are normally considered to be waste products. Our preference is to use suppliers that can show that their wood and wood products are from sustainably-managed sources.

Christchurch Campus fuel requirements; P100M50A2, ISO-17225-1:2014 (oversize up to 350mm). 1 delivery, 3-4 times a year of dry fuel with a moisture content of about 30% is required for start up.
