HoSt to supply wood waste boiler to ‘Ikea Industry’ Poland
Ikea Industry, part of the Inter Ikea Group, is the world’s largest producer of wood furniture. The furniture manufacturer has 39 production sites including the Stepnica site in Poland.
An important Ikea Industry principle is not wasting a single piece of wood: all wood used for the products is sawn so that unnecessary waste is minimalised. Residual wood from the furniture production, such as sawdust and wood shavings, is used as fuel and turned into renewable heat. After burning of the residual wood, the HoSt-boiler supplies the produced hot water at a temperature of 135°C to the production process of the neighbouring Ikea furniture factory in the Polish Stepnica.
HoSt has been selected by IKEA Industry Poland as supplier of the 2.5 MWth wood waste boiler installation for replacement of the old biomass boiler at IKEA’s production site in Stepnica, Poland. Residual wood from the furniture production is turned into renewable heat for the production process.
In addition to the 2.5 MWth fire-tube boiler, HoSt also supplies the furnace with a capacity of 600 kg fuel per hour and the bag house filter that ensures guaranteed low dust emissions of 5mg/Nm3 –HoSt is also responsible for the project supervision and commissioning. Due dust-fire and dust-explosion hazards in the wood feeding system with transport screws, the wood storage fully complies with ATEX explosion regulations.
