Energy Pod – 400kW Scunthorpe

400kW Heating Solution

Our client required additional thermal energy for heat processes, drying and space heating on their dairy farm – an Energy Pod was ideal for them – even before their AD plant was producing biogas!


We supplied a 40ft containerised Energy Pod, which housed 2 plants rooms, divided by an internal wall. The plant rooms each contained a 199kW Viessmann biogas boiler, biogas burner, pressurisation unit, expansion vessel, safety group sets, heating manifolds and gas safety monitoring equipment.

The system was delivered to site before their completed biogas plant was able to produce gas, so we converted the boilers to temporarily run on oil so that heat could be provided to the plants digesters until the anaerobic digestion process was producing enough biogas. Once biogas was available we returned to site to convert the energy pod to burn biogas and commissioned the system.
