Welsh Water making the most of its waste with Calor LPG

October 2016

LPG from Calor Gas is helping Dŵr Cymru Welsh Water operate the very first operational gas-to-grid site in Wales, converting the waste at its Five Fords sewerage plant into a source of environmentally friendly energy.

The site, based near Wrexham, uses an on-site anaerobic digestion (AD) plant to produce bio-methane from the huge quantity of sewage it treats each year. As well as burning the gas in an on-site Combined Heat and Power (CHP) unit, the company has invested in a gas-to-grid plant.

By blending Calor LPG with its biomethane it can produce gas with a high enough calorific value to qualify for injection into mains gas grid – thereby making a contribution of sustainable energy to thousands of domestic homes and businesses.

This doesn’t just provide a boost to Welsh Water’s commitment to sustainability, it also helps it keep operational costs down which in turn helps keep bills low for customers.”
Choosing LPG

The tanks remain the property of Calor, meaning that Welsh Water does not need to invest its time or resources into maintenance, and has peace of mind that the equipment is being properly maintained.

To make the ordering of gas simple for the customer, the tanks are fitted with Calor’s automatic top-up system, which regularly monitors gas levels via a contents gauge, and alerts the Calor team when the tank requires a top up so a timely delivery can be scheduled.

The gas-to-grid system is part of a major initiative from Welsh Water, which aims to make the Five Fords site the company’s biggest renewable energy site. As well as biomethane it has also invested in solar panels and the pre-existing CHP engines, and is exploring further renewable energy technologies for the future.

Calor warns farmers of further biomass RHI reductions

Calor warns farmers of further biomass RHI reductions

Posted on: Wednesday, September 28, 2016

Under recent proposals from the Department of Energy & Climate Change (now the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy) for renewable heat incentive (RHI) reforms, biomass users could see a reduction of up to 61 per cent in RHI tariffs by 2017*, meaning that farmers considering investing in the technology may want to explore alternative fuel options.

It is predicted that these unprecedented tariff degressions would reduce annual installations of biomass boilers from 3,023 in 2015 to just 65 installations by 2021*, meaning the future for biomass now looks very uncertain.
The impact on biomass

Ken Davies, National Agriculture Manager at Calor, explains: “Over the last few years, a number of farmers have opted for biomass heating systems because the RHI payments appear to offer a good return on captial over a typical 20-year timeframe.

“This is especially the case for poultry farmers, with an all-year requirement for heat, which represents a significant proportion of their operating costs.

“As a result of these latest tariff degressions, owners considering a new off-grid heating system will want to consider alternatives and may find that upgrading to a maintenance-free, gas-fired heating system is a safer option.

“There are also concerns about the performance of biomass systems, particularly around the correct sizing of the system, which requires careful consideration during the specification process. If incorrectly or under specified, it could leave a farmer with high maintenance and service costs in the future, not to mention an unachievable return on investment.

“While the theory behind biomass as a renewable technology is laudable, retaining or investing in a gas-fired heating system remains a safe, proven option.”
The latest LPG heater technology

The latest indirect gas-fired heaters use a flue to remove the products of combustion, carbon dioxide and water vapour, while a second intake pipe brings in fresh air from outside to fuel combustion. The consequence of this design is that the poultry shed needs less ventilation and therefore reduced energy consumption is required to keep the sheds warm. Put simply there is more oxygen available, less carbon dioxide and a drier atmosphere, which in turn keeps the litter dry and helps to limit humidity-related diseases.

Through its partnership with Winterwarm, Calor has also launched a new, externally-mounted, indirect heater called the DXC. As it is installed on the outside of the house, it helps to save valuable space in the poultry shed, making it quicker and easier for the farmer to clean the floor space ready for the next batch of boilers.
