Slacks Farm, Lochmaben, Dumfries, UK
Supporting biomass sales with year-round quality, regardless of the weather
Slacks Farm produces wood chips for the biomass industry.
Low-cost rural power and high-quality wood chip production year-round
Two Volter 40 Indoor Combined Heat and Power units produce heat and electricity for the wood chip drying process in Slacks Farm. Also, these two units generate all the energy for domestic and farm needs. Excess energy is sold into the national grid. Thanks to Volter’s CHP units, wood chips can be dried with the lowest possible cost and the farm is, therefore, able to offer high-quality, low moisture wood chips year-round.
This installation was done by Volter’s partner in the UK, Arbor Heat and Power.

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
