Slacks Farm, Lochmaben, Dumfries, UK

Supporting biomass sales with year-round quality, regardless of the weather

Slacks Farm produces wood chips for biomass industry.

Low cost rural power and high-quality wood chip production year-round

Two Volter 40 Indoor Combined Heat and Power units produce heat and electricity for wood chip drying process in Slacks Farm. In addition, these two units generate all the energy for domestic and farm needs. Excess energy is sold into the national grid. Thanks to Volter’s CHP units, wood chips can be dried with the lowest possible cost and the farm is therefore able to offer high quality low moisture wood chips year-round.

This installation was done by Volter’s partner in the UK, Arbor Heat and Power.

One Volter 40 Indoor produces enough electricity and heat for the annual needs of a farm, an entire small housing estate or small business. Our plants can be scaled up to multi-unit installations in order to meet the needs of growing energy demand across diverse applications. Electricity is produced by gasifying wood chips or pellets. Waste heat from the process can be used in hydronic underfloor heating, preheating of air-conditioning or domestic water, to name a few.
