Biomass installation at the Montserrat Abbey
A grand project for sustainable air conditioning in the Montserrat Monastery. The project consists of the construction, maintenance and energy management of a production plant and heat network that provides service to more than 40,000 m2. A total number of ten buildings that take shape in the AbatMarcet building, the Abat Cisneros EdificiMonestir Hostel, the Venerable building, the Abat Cisneros Hostel, the Abat Garriga building, the hospitality, the cafeteria, the monastery and the basilica, as well as the museum and the NostraSenyora building. Grup Soler estimated that the new system will achieve an energy saving of 29% compared to the old propane gas system, and an emission saving of 720 tons / year. The biomass used to generate energy comes from the forest management of the forests of the Montserrat mountain and nearby areas. In this way, environmental, social and economic benefits are maximized. Work done by company Grup Soler.
