Living Energy - Visdamax Wood-Fired Boilers

By: Living Energy  06-Dec-2011

Living Energy are the agent for the Visdamax Bio-T burner in New Zealand, Australia and the Pacific Islands.  The ability of the Bio-T to combust wet sawdust with ultra-low emissions enabled us to secure the largest two wood-fired boiler contracts awarded at sawmills in New Zealand in the last few years, with a combined capacity of over 30MW.

The two installations are at Thames Timber in Thames, where two 4.4MWunits provide hot water to the timber-drying kilns on site, and at Carter Holt Harvey’s sawmill in Whangerei, where three 7.5MW units are serving the needs of their huge timber-drying operation.

Visdamax have installed several more wood-fired boilers in New Zealand and Australia, and have the necessary experience and expertise to deliver a high quality project on time and to an exceptionally high standard of workmanship - fully compliant with all the relevant regulations.

Through Visdamax we can deliver the full turn-key solution, from design through to installation, commissioning and training.

  • The Bio-T burner The Bio T-Burner was developed in New Zealand over 25 years ago. It has a unique dual-stage combustion process providing ultra-low emissions, as well as other features which provide outstanding operational flexibility and low running costs.

  • Complementing the cost-effective Bio-T burner are the simple and well-proven steel storage silos of up to 600m3 each. The silos have negative angled walls to avoid bridging and are installed complete with heat detectors and a water deluge system. The system is fully automated.
