Small scale wood gasification coming of age?
TV Energy visited Biomass Engineering, Warrington on 24th May 2005 to view ongoing work with small-scale gasifiers. The trip was organized through Arup and forms a part of the continuing work towards sourcing an ESCo partner to design, build and operate the energy centre and supply energy services to the Bracknell town centre redevelopment. TV Energy was invited to join the visit with the aim of confirming whether the company has developed gasification technology sufficient to fill the gap in biomass to electricity generation plant in the 100s kWe range. Confidence in the product would enable TV Energy to investigate the application of woodfuel gasification to the Bracknell project as well as a number of other potential end users in the SE of England region.
The visit comprised a presentation by Biomass Engineering of the company and its product followed by a tour of the grid connected gasifier and gas engine system at the Farm Project nearby.
