– ENTRADE Energiesysteme AG presents plants generating energy from wood at bio-energy conference in Moscow
Decentral supplies of electricity and heating from regenerative biomass
At the conference on "Efficient decentral use of biomass in the Russian Federation", which takes place in the Russian capital on 18 and 19 February ENTRADE Energiesysteme AG is presenting small and medium-capacity installations for generating electricity from wood. In the course of the two-day conference Entrade CEO Julien Uhlig will be giving a presentation on the subject of "Decentral electricity generation from solid biomass in rural regions" and demonstrating how a plant fuelled by wood can be used to generate power and heating.
"In particular the rural areas of the Russian Federation represent a market with high sales potential for us, because many communities are not connected to central energy supply grids. And it is often not just electric power which is lacking but also the efficient generation of heating", states Mr Uhlig. "Our installations produce not only base load electricity but also heating, which means that conventional wood stoves or outdated heating equipment can be replaced. Because of the significantly higher effectiveness level we generate more heat at better emissions values and therefore make an active contribution to environmental protection."
Turnkey installation in 40-foot containers – modular and extendable
The small-scale plants produced by ENTRADE AG are highly robust and operate with solid bed gasification in the electrical output range from 30 to 45 kW. Within the compact container module the controls, drying unit, gasifier and CHP are integrated and closely coordinated so that the plant can be easily set up and put into operation at the intended location. The turnkey construction in 40-foot containers ensures great flexibility with regard to potential operational locations. Further modules can be added to the plant, which is fuelled by waste wood for which there was no previous economic use.
At the invitation of FESCO, Russia's national energy service company and Russia's Energy Ministry the event is being held within the Duma, the Russian parliament. The German organisers are the 'SOJUS BIOENERGIE' network operated by the Fraunhofer Institute for Environmental, Safety and Energy Technology UMSICHT (Oberhausen) and the German Biomass Research Centre (DBFZ) Leipzig.
