Delivery of Compte-R woodchip boiler for London Olympic Park
The Clearpower Solution
In 2010, Clearpower supplied and installed the biomass heating system which comprises 1 no. 3MW Compte-R Compact 350 DTH-P hot water boiler from our French boiler partners, Compte-R, 2 no. "drive on" walking floors which is part of the integrated Compte-R equipment supply and is the strongest, most robust walking floor equipment on the market. Articulated trucks drive onto the moving floor system and empty their load by slowly driving forward whilst the woodchip is deposited from the back of the truck. From here, the chip is fed directly by conveyor into the boilers.
