“Generating usable power from a renewable source is an integral part of a new and sustainable energy supply. One way to produce environmentally friendly energy is using old and waste wood as fuel to generate electricity and usable heat”
At Ridham Dock, MVV commissioned a highly modern and very efficient, combined heat and power (CHP) biomass power plant. CHP means the simultaneous production of electrical energy and usable heat. The heat energy from the CHP process is typically used in district heating systems and/or as process steam for industrial purposes. CHP uses a very high degree of the energy content of the fuel. The Ridham Dock plant, MVV will use about 172,000 tonnes of waste wood per year to generate almost 188 million kilowatt-hours of electrical energy. The plant has a net electrical capacity of 23 megawatts.
Crest Pumps provided its SVB pumps made from stainless steel construction – ensuring maximum corrosion resistance and capable of processing high temperature liquids at 85% efficiency. The pumps provided to MVV are manufactured with a vortex impeller, allowing for a high concentration of solid transfer.
|Chemical – The SVB range of Crest Pumps are fully corrosion resistant making the pumps ideal in a chemical environment. Supporting high temperatures at 85% efficiency, the SVB range can handle near all types of sump emptying applications. The SVB also features customisable base-plate shapes and dimensions, making replacing an existing pump easy. The range is ATEX compliant.|
|Water Treatment – By allowing solids up to 60% of the discharge port size, the SVB pump is an ideal choice for the water and waste water industry. The Vortex impeller option also allows filamentous solid transfer whilst still operating at 85% efficiency. The stainless steel construction also ensures maximum corrosion resistance. All pumps can be supplied with a suction strainer and tail pipe.|
|Pharmaceutical – The Crest engineering team is mindful that the pharmaceutical industry requires pumps which are both reliable and efficient and can operate for long periods of time. The ability to transfer solids efficiently with various mounting options makes the SVC pump an ideal solution for this industry.|
