High-quality wood production and huge savings with Volter 40 Indoor
Old Ballikinrain House’s business, WoodForFuel.com, has grown over the years and to increase the production of their firewood, they started to research different CHP options. To meet the site demands, the decision was to install two compact and tidy Volter 40 Indoor Combined Heat and Power units. These units are generating all the electricity and heat in their home, other buildings and wood drying systems. Their certified woodchip and logs are dried on powerful drying floors and in a purpose-built kiln to get the correct moisture content for their products. Volter’s CHPs are bringing huge savings in diesel bills, and also allowing fast business growth for the company.
This installation was done by Volter’s distributor in the UK, Arbor Heat and Power.

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
