Spanner Re² launches "EnergyBlock“ – new modular biomass CHP
Germany-based biomass gasification plant manufacturer Spanner Re² GmbH has launched a new "EnergyBlock“ – a compact, turnkey solution that cogenerates heat and electricity from wood with maximum flexibility and autonomy. The system, which includes a biomass CHP and an intelligent regulation unit supplied in a 20 or 40-foot-housed container, is ideal for ‘off-grid” operation, significantly reducing reliance on other costly power supplies.
According to the company, the modular structure and ability to cascade the biomass CHP mean the system offers maximum flexibility and can be easily adjusted to local conditions. Power and heat production from locally sourced wood is consistently achieved with the EnergyBlock’s broad power spectrum options from 35 kWe to 780 kWe as well as 80 kWth to 1.8 MWth.
With our new EnergyBlock, Spanner Re² offers a complete, efficient and bespoke off-grid solution. Ex-works pre-assembly and our cleverly devised Plug & Play technology mean we can put the system into operation in a very short timeframe, said Jörg Kretschmer, Project Director Spanner Re².
According to Kretschmer, the demand for an innovative energy technology in the renewable sector is becoming even more relevant due to the continuing rise in electricity costs, fossil fuel dependency and limited regional supply options. The EnergyBlock addresses that demand and uses a variety of different fuel types to operate including woodchips, pellets and briquettes.
The desire to replace expensive, fossil diesel generators with eco-friendly energy is increasing. Off-grid solutions like the EnergyBlock provide a self-sufficient power supply that meets those needs perfectly. Our EnergyBlock is also an excellent solution for suboptimal developed regions, to produce climate-friendly power and heat. Our patented technology uses the energy from the sun which is stored in the wood and at the same time is adding value because the wood stays locally in the region, explained Thomas Bleul, Managing Partner of Spanner Re².
