Clearpower Hosts Visit Of An Taoiseach And Local Ministers To Monart Spa
Tom Sheehy, Sales Manager for Clearpower, played host to a very high-powered political visit to the Monart Destination Spa and T&A Byrne Renewables in Wexford recently. Pictured at Monart Spa were l/r Tom Sheehy, sales manager, Clearpower; Mark Browne, manager, Monart Spa, Liam Anthony Griffin and Michael Griffin, proprietors, Monart Spa; Minister Andrew Doyle TD; Minister Paul Kehoe TD; An Taoiseach Leo Varadkar TD; Ted Byrne, owner, T & A Byrne Renewables, Eric Bolton, project manager, Clearpower; Minister Michael D'Arcy TD and Aidan Byrne, owner, T & A Byrne.
Clearpower stores significant volumes of timber at Byrne’s for processing, storage, chipping and delivery to Clearpower customers, of which the world-famous Monart Spa is one. The Clearpower Forest to Heat solution provides heat to the Spa, which is now among the Top 3 Spa destinations in the world according to the very influential Conde Nast Traveller magazine.
The Taoiseach and his ministers wanted to see first-hand the contribution a regional processing hub of this scale makes to the local economy, as well as hearing about the many benefits of displacing imported fossil fuel, reducing greenhouse gas emissions and mobilising Ireland’s forestry resources.
Tom said, “The visit to Monart and Byrne Renewables was of great value as our political guests had now a complete understanding of the process. It was great to be able to show them that a world-famous spa resort like Monart is using our award-winning Forest to Heat Biomass system.”
