The environment is ideally suited for rapid, practical testing of innovations and renewable energy business development. The energy park focuses on testing and developing property sized hybrid energy systems, delivering valuable information on the functionality and efficiency of the equipment.
The Sirkkala Energy Park is also used to study the actual operating and maintenance costs of the various forms of energy production and the cost structure of the whole chain of operations. They study energy efficiency from the total energy balance and resource efficiency point of view. The Energy Park cooperates with companies and research institutes in the region.
Volter’s CHP is used to test and develop woodchip fuel production in cooperation with entrepreneurs in the field of business. The heat and electricity produced in the park are used for the energy needs of the school buildings.
Solution: Volter 40 Indoor
Fuel: Woodchip Electric power: 40 kW Heating power: 100 + 20 kW
One Volter 40 Indoor produces enough electricity and heat for the annual needs of a farm, an entire small housing estate or small business. Our plants can be scaled up to multi-unit installations in order to meet the needs of growing energy demand across diverse applications. Electricity is produced by gasifying wood chips. Waste heat from the process can be used in hydronic underfloor heating, preheating of air-conditioning or domestic water, to name a few.More about Volter 40 Indoor
