MAIN BUSINESS ACTIVITIES

  • FORESTRY OWNER

  • WOODCHIP PRODUCER

  • BOILER INSTALLATION

  • HEAT SUPPLY CONTRACTS


BIOMASS PLANT

  • SITUATED AT DRAGONHALL FARM, PADANARAM, BY FORFAR

  • OPENED BY JOHN SWINNEY

  • PROJECT COSTS: £1.2 MILLION


ISSUES IN SETTING UP PLANT

  • LOCATION TO TIMBER SUPPLY

  • LOCATION TO BOILERS

  • CAPITAL COST

  • GRANT ASSISTED BY SSBS

  • QUALITY OF CHIP

  • MOISTURE CONTENT OF CHIP

  • SIZE OF CHIP

  • HANDLING OF WOOD FROM FOREST TO BOILER


BIOMASSPRODUCTS

  • WOOD CHIPS – WET - ABOVE 30% M.C.

  • WOOD CHIPS – DRY – BELOW 25% M.C.

  • WOODCHIPS DRIED BY –

    NATURAL DRYING

    ARTIFICIAL DRYING


CHIPPERS

  • HEIZOHACK 400 SCREEN CHIPPER

  • JUNKKARI 500 DRUM CHIPPER

  • JENZ 561 CHIPPER


STORAGE OF TIMBER/CHIP

  • AIR DRYING = 5000 TONNES

  • AT ROADSIDE = 3000 TONNES

  • DRY CHIP = 2000 TONNES


WOODCHIP OUTPUT

MAXIMUM OUTPUT =

100 TONNES OF DRY CHIP PER DAY

I.E. 400,000 kWhrs OF HEAT

TYPICAL HOUSE WILL USE APPROX 100 kWhrs

TYPICAL PRIMARY SCHOOL WILL USE APPROX 5000 kWhrs


DELIVERY OF WOODCHIP

  • ARTICULATED LORRY

  • HI-LIFT TRAILER

  • BULK TRAILER

  • BLOWER TRAILER

  • BULK BAGS


BOILER INSTALLATIONS

CHOICE BETWEEN –

WOODCHIP OR WOOD PELLET

DRY WOODCHIP – LESS THAN 25% MC

  • GENERALLY LARGER INSTALLATIONS

  • LARGER FUEL STORAGE FACILITIES

  • LOWER FUEL COSTS THAN PELLETS AT PRESENT. AROUND 3.5p/kWhr

  • LONG SHELF LIFE


WET WOODCHIP- ABOVE 30% M.C.

  • VERY LARGE BOILERS & POWER STATIONS

  • MORE DELIVERIES PER ANNUM

  • MORE CONTAMINATION

  • SHORT SHELF LIFE DUE TO COMPOSTING & MOULDING

  • PRICE SIMILAR TO DRY WOODCHIP


WOOD PELLETS

  • IDEAL FOR SMALLER BOILER INSTALLATIONS

  • LESS BULKY

  • MORE EXPENSIVE – AROUND 4.5p/kWhr

  • CAN BREAK DOWN IF GET DAMP OR WET

  • LIMITED SHELF LIFE


BOILERS INSTALLED – 10KW TO 600KW

  • BINDER

  • FROELING

  • VETO

  • CALIMAX

  • JANFIRE

  • SONNYS

  • GILLIES – Under consideration


CHOOSING A BOILER

  • WHAT SIZE DO I NEED AND WHEN DO I NEED HEAT?

  • HOW SOPHISTICATED DO I NEED?

  • FUEL STORAGE AND DELIVERY?

  • BACK-UP SERVICE?

  • GO AND LOOK AT INSTALLED EXAMPLES

  • ASK QUESTIONS

  • DOES IT COMPLY WITH THE LOCAL ENVIRONMENTAL CRITERIA?


HEAT SUPPLY CONTRACTS

FACTORS TO CONSIDER

  • COST OF BOILER AND INFRASTRUCTURE

  • PRICE FOR FUEL

  • COST OF DELIVERY

  • COST OF MAINTENANCE

  • COST OF CLEANING/DE-ASHING

  • SINKING FUND

  • PROFIT


THANK YOU.

  • DO YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS?
