Dreyer & Bosse Kraftwerke as a seasoned manufacturer of CHP (Combined Heating and Power) has provided a complete CHP system of series Vita for generating heat and power for a wool producer in Uruguay. The biogas cleaning system including biogas cooler and activated carbon filter were ordered and delivered as well for a smooth operation.

There are 3.9 millions of sheep at this farm, about 40% of the country total amount and could produce 10.000 tonne sheep wool a year. The company Lanas Trinidad is the largest producer and exporter in sector of sheep wool product in Uruguay.

Waste water is being gathered in 4 big waste water tanks with volume of between 15.000 and 25.000 m³ respectively. There are roughly 2.500 to 3.500 m³ methane to be generated a day. It is worth setting up a CHP unit with electrical power of 366kW and heating output of 408kW. The generated electricity is being used directly by this farm and a part of it is fed into national grid concurrently. The heat from exhaust gas is being used for heating the waste water tanks. The local temperature between 35 and 38°C is ideal for generating biogas.

This farm is a part of CDM projects aimed at earning certified emission reduction (CER) credits according to Kyoto-Protocol.
