Biomass-fired boilers & wood boilers

Looking for a highly efficient and sustainable biomass boiler, such as a wood boiler? HoSt has over 25 years’ experience with designing, building, operating and maintenance of biomass-fired boiler and wood-fired boilers.

Biomass-fired bioenergy installations convert biomass, such as wood, straw, chaff or other organic residues that are available in large quantities, in heat and sometimes also (green) electricity. This is also called bioenergy. Using biomass as a fuel is more environmentally friendly and significantly cheaper than natural gas and diesel. Need more information? Contact us. We would be glad to assist you and helping you in making the best choice.

“SUSTAINABLE AND EFFICIENT ENERGY FROM BIOMASS”

Biomass & wood boilers

HoSt supplies biomass fired and wood boiler from 2 MWth to 50 MWth. Boilers greater than 25 MWth are built in two combustion lines in combination with one larger efficient steam turbine. This allows cost effective road transport and reducing the height of the building envelope. This modular approach also provides greater installation flexibility for our clients.

Advanced technology

The combustion technology is highly flexible in applicable fuels: such as moisture contents ranging from 10% to 55% and fuels with low ash melting points like straw, chaff, manure, olive pulp, chicken manure and RDF (Refused Derived Fuel). HoSt is able to supply flue gas cleaning to minimize NOx, sulphur, chlorine, dust and other pollutants to meet required emission standards. Read more about the technology and what effect of our advanced technology has on the maintenance costs.

 

Wood-fired bio-CHP’s are extremely suitable for the greenhouse sector. At a pepper nursery in Beetgum, the Netherlands HoSt has developed one of the most sustainable wood-fired combined cogeneration plants in the Netherlands.

Why choose a HoSt combustion plant?

  • Fuel flexibility
  • High efficiency
  • High reliability
  • Competitive pricing
  • High customer satisfaction

eindhoven (strijp), Netherlands

Bioenergy plant Strijp supplies heat to the district heating net of Eindhoven. The plant burns wood chips and produces green electricity as well as heat.

 

 

rĒzekne, Latvia

This bioenergy plant supplies approx. 3 MWe of electricity to the net and approx. 11MWth of heat to a wood drying system of a wood pellet production plant.
