Cranfield University is celebrating a successful heating season operating its new biomass boiler by hosting an event with a workshop and tour on the 20th April. Attendees will have a chance to learn more about this project with presentations from Cranfield staff, Flogas Renewables, supplier and installer of the boiler, and LC Energy who provide the fuel. There will be a chance to see the Compte boiler in operation and also view a delivery of wood chip to the top unloader fuel store.
About Cranfields’ Biomass Boiler
The new Biomass Boiler was delivered to Cranfield campus at the beginning of November 2014. The boiler, which is exclusively fuelled by woodchip, has a 960 kW thermal output and was manufactured by Compte in France. Following successful tests in the spring of 2015, the boiler is now coming to the end of its first full season of operation.
