MAIN BUSINESS ACTIVITIES

  • FORESTRY OWNER

  • WOODCHIP PRODUCER

  • BOILER INSTALLATION

  • HEAT SUPPLY CONTRACTS


Biomass plant

BIOMASS PLANT

  • SITUATED AT DRAGONHALL FARM, PADANARAM, BY FORFAR

  • OPENED BY JOHN SWINNEY

  • PROJECT COSTS: £1.2 MILLION


Issues in setting up plant

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


Biomass products

BIOMASSPRODUCTS

  • WOOD CHIPS – WET - ABOVE 30% M.C.

  • WOOD CHIPS – DRY – BELOW 25% M.C.

  • WOODCHIPS DRIED BY –

    NATURAL DRYING

    ARTIFICIAL DRYING


Chippers

CHIPPERS

  • HEIZOHACK 400 SCREEN CHIPPER

  • JUNKKARI 500 DRUM CHIPPER

  • JENZ 561 CHIPPER


Storage of timber chip

STORAGE OF TIMBER/CHIP

  • AIR DRYING = 5000 TONNES

  • AT ROADSIDE = 3000 TONNES

  • DRY CHIP = 2000 TONNES


Woodchip output

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

DELIVERY OF WOODCHIP

  • ARTICULATED LORRY

  • HI-LIFT TRAILER

  • BULK TRAILER

  • BLOWER TRAILER

  • BULK BAGS


Boiler installations

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


Angus biofuels

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


Angus biofuels

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

BOILERS INSTALLED – 10KW TO 600KW

  • BINDER

  • FROELING

  • VETO

  • CALIMAX

  • JANFIRE

  • SONNYS

  • GILLIES – Under consideration


Choosing a boiler

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

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
