Collective financing (crowdlending) for the replacement of a diesel boiler with a biomass boiler, for a company specialised in the drying of serrano ham from Cuéllar (Segovia, Spain). This project drastically reduces the heating bill of the company by 25% and will enable reducing CO2 emissions in the atmosphere by about 610 tonnes annually.
The company AUTÉNTICA GENERACIÓN DISTRIBUIDA DE CASTILLA Y LEÓN, S.L. (AGDCL) has installed a 500 kW industrial biomass boiler, model LASIAN “Biocompact 500 frontal” for a large ham drying business situated in Segovia (Spain), replacing the previous diesel boiler which will be maintained in place for maintenance or in case of breakdown of the new boiler. The boiler is installed in an outdoor thermal container, with cyclone to prevent the emission of particles, automatic ash collection, electronic control systems and hoppers, and is accompanied by a 46 m3 silo ready to store 30 tons of pellets . The installation is completed with valves, pumps, a hydraulic expansion vessel, hydraulic installation and electrical installation.
The company in which the biomass boiler is installed needs a constant heating system to dry about 400.000 hams per year and has appointed AGDCL to provide and guarantee this service. The boiler will consume an estimated 500 tons of pellets per year.
The total cost of the new installation is €121.176 (+ VAT). The crowdlending campaign is set to finance 50% of the installation.
The installation will produce 25% saving on the cost of heating for the company.
The CO2 emissions of the ham drying company will be reduced by approximately 610 tons per year, thanks to the quasi full elimination of its oil consumption
The ham drying company has signed a 6 years contract with AGDCL for the provision of pellets, at constant price and quality. Furthermore, AGDCL will handle all preventive and corrective maintenance of the installations, with a 24 X 7 emergency service all year long.
