Multiple IRMA's for a Biomass Boiler company


Mi-Generation installs and services biomass boilers in industrial companies. Such companies can benefit from claiming the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) which is a government payment to businesses that switch to heat produced by biomass. This was set up to help the government meet its commitment to produce 15% of our energy from renewable sources by 2020.

It is a requirement that if biomass boiler installations have underground pipework then there must be an independent report to confirm that everything has been installed properly and is in working order – this is called an IRMA (Independent Report on Metering Arrangements).

Following a web search around a year ago, Jo contacted Vent-Tech and after a visit from Adrian Sims she asked Vent-Tech to carry out an IRMA for a biomass boiler that they had installed.


Mi-Generation were very pleased with the report they received from Vent-Tech and found them very easy to work with on that first project - so asked them to do the next one and the next..

To date Vent-Tech have conducted more than 20 IRMA’s for Mi-Generation with more in the pipeline.

Helpful and Responsive

Once Mi-Generation receives a report they send them on to Ofgem as is required.

Occasionally Ofgem will have a query or question and if that happens Jo calls Vent-Tech and has found that they are always happy to help and responsive. More importantly they can invariably assist in answering the question, so ensuring that Ofgem are also happy.

‘Ever since the first project, working with Vent-Tech has been a pleasure. The reports are good and comprehensive, and this is coupled with the fact that the team at Vent-Tech are great. I have their mobile numbers and they are always responsive and willing to help – and from a personal point of view I get on really well with them too. I am 100% happy with both the work they have done for me and the relationship I have with them’
