Poultry Farmer Turns to Biomass CHP
Our latest job is to supply two poultry sheds with heat during the winter months and provide commercial wood chip drying during times when the sheds do not require heating. The client, who already has a wind turbine, chose biomass CHP as the ideal answer to both heating and year round steady power that can be used on the rest of the site. Any excess electricity will be exported back to the grid.
Two 45kW electrical Spanner RE2 wood chip CHP systems have been chosen for the site. Although other wood chip systems are available, the Spanner system not only has the longest operational hours, it proves to be extremely competitive on project costs. TW Power have the expertise to not only install the units correctly but provide all the on site heating and electrical installation and all accreditation for both the renewable heat incentive and renewable obligation certificates.
The building is going up nicely on the site and will be used for the equipment, chip drying and also space for machinery on the site.
Payback for the project is expected to be within 5 years with a further 15 years of steady income through the government incentives.

Spanner RE2 announce major order for Wood Chip Biomass CHP systems
Spanner Re² reports a new success story of its popular wood cogeneration plant: The company just received another big international order for a total of 120 units to be used in applications worldwide. As had been the case in prior major orders, the wood cogeneration plants were selected due to their ideal scalability in megawatt projects: Low investment cost, easy modular combination and ultimate reliability were again the main arguments.
Cascade installation of several type HKA 45 Wood Cogeneration power plants enables the easy, highly flexible realization of megawatt plants. A combination of 22 of these HKA 45 plants in Latvia currently produces a combined power of 1 MW electric and 2.4 MW thermal.
Depending on local conditions, the power can be either fed into the grid or used on-site. The heat can be used for district or remote heating nets or for on-site purposes.
Cascading several individual Wood Cogeneration plants features many attractive benefits: Use of serial components ensures a very competitive total cost of ownership. Planning and implementation processes are simplified and accelerated by simply linking proven standardized single units. Each individual Wood Cogeneration plant works independently of the others, is individually and easily controlled, and can be started and stopped within minutes, enabling individual systems to be switched on or off anytime to meet actual requirements. High system redundancy ensures ultimate availability and easy adjustment to actual consumption.
Spanner Re² Wood Cogeneration power plants are especially attractive in areas without gas supply and for operators with good access to regional low cost wood chip or waste wood resources. In the described power range they feature clear advantages over other biomass CHP technologies like steam turbines or ORC plants, especially when it comes to investment cost, efficiency, overall profitability, and implementation speed. In addition, they create regional added value, using a resource that, by contrast to oil or gas, is sustainable and environmentally friendly.
“We are happy about this order and we continue to grow: 120 units is more than one annual production. Our gasifier-CHP Wood Cogeneration plants made in Germany are ever more becoming a highly attractive solution for megawatt plants worldwide”, says Thomas Bleul, Managing Partner at Spanner. “In many countries, e.g. Italy, Latvia or Austria, they enable participation in feed-in programs, because of their environmentally friendly, efficient operation based on sustainable resources. In other countries like Germany they are economically attractive for producing domestic and in-house power. We support every customer with our technology expertise as with our regulatory and economic know how to find the most attractive solution.“
Spanner Re² wood cogeneration plants are highly efficient in transforming wood chips into heat and power following the combined heat and power (CHP) principle. They use natural wood chips and offer attractive cost advantages from the use of proprietary, self-produced heat and power. Several hundred Spanner Re² cogeneration plants are in operation in agriculture and forestry applications, hotels and catering, and in domestic and remote heating networks in Europe, Asia and North America.
TW Power can install the Spanner RE2 CHP system and also fully accredit the units under the Renewable Heat Incentive and Renewable Obligations Team
TW Power, The First Entrade Biomass CHP UK Partners
TW Power, The First Entrade Biomass CHP UK Partners, are exhibiting Entrade's revolutionary E3 pellet fired Biomass CHP system at Greenbuild EXPO 2015. TW Power have successfully ran their own E3 unit for more than 3500 hours, more than any other unit in the UK. We will be disconnecting the unit and bringing it to the show for an up close and personal view of a working biomass CHP plant that has already generated over 58,000kWh of electric. Interested in installing these units for your clients? Drop by and see how you can be part of the latest CHP technology.
Full UK RHI and ROC accreditation for Entrade E3 Biomass CHP
TW Power have obtained FULL Renewable Heat Incentive and Renewable Obligation Certification accreditation for the E3. The first in the UK.
What does this mean for you? Based on 7500 hours per year:
£26,000 in RHI payments
£14,000 in RO Certificates
£5,000 in Heat and Power use savings AFTER paying for wood pellets based on £200 per tonne
Total savings of £45,000 per year
TW Power Shortlisted for the Building and Energy Efficiency Awards 2015
TW Power have been shortlisted for their state of the art Pellet Biomass CHP installation with Entrade
The Buildings & Energy Efficiency (B&EE) Awards will reward outstanding projects and innovative products that are promoting excellence in buildings across the UK.
Across key sectors of construction, the Awards will showcase innovation, celebrate best practice and recognise expertise in energy usage and the ways it contributes to an attractive, energy efficient and sustainable built environment.
The prestigious event provides one of the most effective platforms for targeting the industry, presenting the ideal opportunity to maximise industry exposure and penetrate this economically important market.
