Lahaugmoen Nutrition Park

Mobile heating for Norwegian business park

In April 2017, Linka commissioned a large mobile heating plant in a newly built Norwegian industrial park. This ensures CO2 neutral heat for businesses and residents in the area.

The Norwegian industrial and residential area, Lahaugmoen, is located outside Oslo. The area is a former military camp, but today contains about 43,000 m2 of industry and 500 commuter homes. The area is expected to double in size over the next few years.

Together with our Norwegian distributor, Bioenergy, Linka has built the complete mobile plant for Lahaugmoen. Bioenergy owns and operates the plant.

The plant container was built by Linka in Denmark, including boilers, plumbing and electrical installations, after which it was shipped to Lahaugmoen for final commissioning. This ensures that the plant is quickly operational after arrival at the construction site.

The plant

The mobile plant consists of a 4,000 kW Linka H boiler, designed for firing with wood chips. In addition, a 6,000 kW oil boiler has been installed as a backup in case of a failure of the chip boiler.

When firing with moist wood chips, with up to 40% water, it is necessary to install tiles in the boiler, as large amounts of water evaporate during combustion.

A wood chip pit has been built adjacent to the plant container, where the hydraulic roof can be raised to ensure easy and fast filling of wood chips. A scraper system with eight scrapers has been installed in the chip pit, which conveys the fuel to a submerged crosscut auger. From here it is transported to the boiler via augers.

After incineration, the ash is automatically transported from the boiler to a 20 m3 ash container, located outside the plant container.

PLC control has also been installed for the plant, which can warn of any deviations in operation.
