HoSt supplies renewable heat to greenhouse companies ‘Het Grootslag’ in Andijk
For the next 13 years, six greenhouse horticulture companies in the area ‘Het Grootslag’ located in Andijk, province North-Holland of the Netherlands will collectively purchase renewable heat directly from HoSt. For this purpose HoSt is realizing the new 15 MWth biomass-fired heat and power plant that HoSt will also operate commercially.
With the renewable heat supply service from HoSt, the greenhouse growers do not have to worry about the installation. The maintenance and business operation is totally carried out by HoSt. The first heat supply from biomass (wood chips) is planned in the first quarter of 2020.
Low emissions, high efficiency
The biomass-fired heat and power installation is equipped with a 15 MWth water-tube boiler. Thanks to the bag house filter, that takes care of filtering and collecting dust, and the extensive flue gas cleaning technology, in the form of urea injection into the furnace, the installation has guaranteed low dust and nitrogen dioxide emissions (dust: <5 mg/Nm3 and NOx <145/Nm3). Very high fuel efficiency is achieved through the use of a flue gas condenser that supplies up to 30% extra heat.
