"Boiler in a Box" tour - Thursday 11:AM
2601 Commercial Avenue
Bering Sea Biomass Heat Pilot Project
The Garn "Boiler in a Box" is being pre-assembled at the AEA Yard in Anchorage, and will ship out Thursday night for Stebbins, on the Bering Sea.
Last chance to see it in Anchorage is Thursday morning, before it is sent to the dock.
The system is a cordwood-fired hydronic boiler, installed in a shipping container. It will be pre-insulated, pre-wired, pre-plumbed and ready for "Plug and Burn" deployment.
This is a pilot project to quantify the cordwood supply volumes, test saltwater driftwood fuel viability in coastal applications, and to refine the design of a modular, portable system.
The system also has the capacity to store energy from a wind turbine or solar panel, as a water battery.
Alaska Heat Technologies is providing the system design and engineering for the system.
Dalson Energy is coordinating the construction, administering the grants from DOE and AEA, and managing the project for the client/grantee, Stebbins Community Association.
David Frederick & Thomas Deerfield will be available to answer questions.
Pass this on to anyone with interest in rural renewable energy solutions.
