District Heating with biomass in the city of Granollers

The Municipality of Granollers (Barcelona) has completed the installation project of the District Heating for supplying seven different public centres with energy from biomass. They include the local publisher, the Artists and Culture centre, the primary school, among others.

The project, carried out by the company Energroup, consisted in the substitution of the former individual installations running on natural gas with two biomass boilers HERZ firematic 501, supplied by the CER Termosun group with a total power of 1000 kW. The new district heating system will reduce the emissions of CO2 to 134,4 tonnes a year and will save the municipality 28.042 euros, according to calculations.

For the supply of the woodchip to the thermal power plant there will be used a dump truck or a truck with a moving base through a double vertical filling system installed in the exterior, that allows for an optimal and fast filling.
