3no. 20ft Drying PodsShaw Renewables supplied both the primary side and the secondary side of this system to the customer. The primary side, and heat source for the Drying Pods was a 850kW Woodchip Biomass Boiler solution, based in a purpose built plant room.
3 individual 200kW 20ft containers combine to produce 600kW heating capacity. Internally, a wall of fan coil blowers provides concentrated heat to the rest of the container, which is being used as a timber store.
As the drying pods are self-contained, they have been placed remotely on site and are connected to the heat source via pre-insulated underground pipes – the trench work can be seen in the first image, to the left of the containers.
The 3 Drying Pods were fabricated offsite and transported to the customer ready to connect and begin drying timber.
