Biomass Wood Fuel Supply
In total we have direct production capacity of 20,000 dry tons per annum of wood chip.
Our main production/operations base is in Dungannon, Co. Tyrone and in 2012 we opened regional fuel depot hubs in Randalstown, Co. Antrim and Enniskillen, Co. Fermanagh.
We have a rigorous in house quality control system to ensure that all wood chip is of agreeable, consistent quality and meets either P30, or P45, specification. The primary processing involves chipping the full stem rods. After chipping, a secondary screening process in undertaken, this removes any chip that does not meet either, P30, or P45 specification, depending on screens involved.
Fuel delivery options
We offer fuel delivery options in the following forms
All fuel is supplied as standard at 20% moisture content.
This complies with the European W20 standard and provides maximum available energy per ton, as gross energy content in the timber (and hence energy output of the boiler) is not wasted driving off excess moisture . . . water does not burn!
Hegan Biomass operates ESCO contracts in Northern Ireland and Republic of Ireland.
Under this model, the client enters into a long term contract (e.g. 10 years or more) to buy metered energy from us at a pre-agreed index-linked price.
Using this model Hegan Biomass assumes all responsibility for the design, financing, installation, operation and maintenance (including fuel delivery and ash removal) of the biomass system at the client’s site which means that there is no capital cost required on the part of the client who simply pays for the output of the system i.e. cheaper greener energy as he uses it.
The ESCO model is a low risk option that delivers energy cost savings and carbon emission reductions with no capital cost or operational responsibility. Suitable applications for the ESCO model are those clients with a relatively constant heat load such as hospitals and nursing homes, process plants (industrial/food/beverages/timber/etc.), district heating for public/commercial buildings, and leisure facilities.
