Containerised biomass boiler plants
Säätötuli was one of the pioneers in the field of containerised biomass boiler plants and has now over 10 years of experience and more than 200 manufactured units installed in Europe. In North America, 7 units are already running in Canada.
A plug-and-play biomass boiler plant
Säätötuli’s containerised biomass boiler plants are fully operational biomass heating systems built inside a custom made container with fire-resistant walls. They include a silo, a hot water boiler or a hot air furnace, the automation and all the electrical works and plumbing already made in the factory. They are easy to install and easy to relocate.
Säätötuli’s containerised biomass boiler plants come in different shapes depending on the need of the customer for output and silo capacity.
Here are the different types of containerised biomass heating plants from Säätötuli Canada:
- Biocont Eco – Economical and ecological heat-energy box
- Biocont Roll-off – Easy-to-move self-contained biomass heating plant
- Biocont Jumbo – High capacity prefabricated biomass heating plant
- Boilercont Export – Heating plant with different silo possibilities
- Biocont MultiJumbo – Biomass district heating containerised plant
We are also pleased to feature more detailed case studies for some containerised biomass heating systems:
- Case study: installation of a Biocont Export with pellet silo
- Case study: installation of a MultiJumbo for municipal district heating
A containerised heating plant is easy to install as it is almost completely manufactured in a factory. Once on the installation site, the boiler plant is set on its concrete pad, the chimney is erected and the heat and electrical networks are connected. Therefore installation is easy and fast and requires only a solid installation pad. The boiler plant is also easy to relocate if needed. Problems due to incorrect cabling is also avoided as everything is mounted and tested before delivery.
The containerised heating plant can be equipped with additional wooden or metallic cladding to integrate it to its surroundings.
An ideal solution for BTU sellers
These modular solutions are commonly used by green heat entrepreneurs. They allow to deliver heat to the customers without having to undergo a long installation process, but also they are easy to relocate at the end of the BTU-selling contract or if the customer is unable to pay his invoices. These features make the containerised biomass plants also easier to finance.
A tool to start-up building a municipal district heating
Containerised biomass boiler plants can also be used for municipal district heating. They allow for a soft start and step-by-step capacity building for biomass heat networks. You can read more about this concept in our brochure about municipal biomass heating.
