Outstanding projects within the biomass boilers sector for healthcare

  • Biomass at El Ferrol Naval Hospital

    A saving of 300,000 euros in El Ferrol thanks to biomass. The Galician Healthcare Service (Servicio Gallego de Salud; SERGAS) has achieved an economically and environmentally sustainable energy system using forest biomass as an energy source to provide thermal energy to the main Galician Community hospitals. The Naval Hospital had three heating boilers and one for domestic hot water. Once the installation is completed, two BioFire biomass boilers and two natural gas boilers will be used for both heating and hot water. The former Hospital de Marina has 314 beds, 5 operating rooms and 2 hyperbaric chambers to treat poisoning, decompressions and burns. Since its arrangement, SERGAS has wanted to improve the energy efficiency of all its facilities. In this case, a renovation of the boilers room has been carried out, replacing the four diesel and gas boilers with two BioFiremás biomass boilers and two supporting gas boilers. The vertical filling system used in this project allows chips or pellets to be transported through the sections by screw conveyor that is located inside the silo and offers the possibility of reaching up to 10 meters high. The screw conveyor inside the silo provides optimal fuel distribution.

    The main advantages are:

    • Adaptable to any need.
    • Robustness.
    • Reliability.
    • Up to 10 meters high.
    • Exterior parts with anti-corrosion ends for permanent outdoor installation.
    • Optimal fuel distribution in the silo thanks to the horizontal filling auger (up to 12 m in length).

    The project has been carried out by the company Termosun.

    Boiler model: Two BioFire boilers 1,000 kW
    Power: 2,000 kW
    Fuel: Pellets
    Sector: Healthcare sector
    Year of installation: 2014
