Installation of wood gas CHP
4.8 Installation of the wood gas CHP
For the erection of wood cogeneration plants several trades must be matched.
Since an increased proportion of biomass heating equipment is installed, the overall performance is mostly in the hands of biomass heating systems businesses.
A good installer requires knowledge in the areas of:
• heating systems
• Engine Technology
• Measurement and control
Experience has shown that different heating systems businesses wood gasification CHP equate with a boiler and thereby build crucial error in the system.
The application of wood gas -CHP at the uitlity company and the work in the meter cupboard must be performed by an authorized partner professional electricians. The question of reference installations is more than necessary. A certificate of the Chamber of Commerce is not enough to dominate the system.
4.9 Services to wood gas CHP
Planning and applying for marriage one thinks seriously about a wood gas cogeneration plant, a calculation of profitability should be demanded.
The following data must be determined
• heat demand of the object with regard to the climate and usage patterns of the object
• Run time determination of the wood gasification CHP, if possible with a graphical comparison of the heat requirement
• Calculation of produced electrical and thermal work
• revenues and costs electrically and thermally
• total investment
• Interest and amortization frames for creating the WB. A comparison of CHP in the next lower and higher power rating should be demanded if multi-module plants are proposed.
More module installations can be replaced by cheaper modulating CHP generally.
For the operation of cogeneration plants an extensive application process is to be performed:
• flue (chimney sweep)
• Gas Supply (Gas Utilities)
• Mains parallel operation (RU)
• subsidies (regional institutions)
• Feed-in tariff (Bafa)
• Energy tax refund (Principal Customs Office) Our partners assist operators in these Tasks.
For initial application, a lump sum will be invoiced as a rule. Who goes to these states initial application, should reckon with increased effort since often lack the technical knowledge and also the applicant's application centers are regional variations. It is not possible to work with a standard- form.
