Wood Gas CHP Container Systems

Our wood gas CHP container systems are a perfect fit for users, who don’t want to invest into a building for the power plant or don’t have an already existing building to use for it. For small systems it is not economically feasible to construct its own building, which is the reason why many potential users held off from building a CHP system.

Our container systems are faster and cheaper to construct and to start operation. Therefore, the over all costs of investments for a wood gas CHP container system have decreased significantly.

Key Features of our wood gas CHP container systems

Reasons for our container systems:

  • Technology proven to be long-lasting and efficient
  • One company for everything – planning, financing, construction and maintenance
  • Individual configurations make different loading technologies possible
  • Sole use of quality engines in the CHP plant
  • Well-developed drying and delivery components for minimal susceptibility
  • Capable of using almost every type of wood chips
  • Drying of wood chips through process heat possible
  • Attractive additional profit from selling excess heat
  • Redundancy of power grid possible, due to multiple cascading lines
  • Flexible design for the sizes from 50 to 150 kW with minimal additional space needed
  • Construction layout may be adapted to the systems location
  • Customize your container with your corporate design

Since wood gas power plants produce a high amount of power and heat, our offers are directed at customers with a high consumption of both, which are mainly commercial users. Generally speaking, it is also possible for multiple private households to come together to operate a system. This is possible in different legal forms. We are happy to assist you in finding a qualified consultant for this option.

What makes operating a wood gas container system profitable?

  • High need for power and heat
  • At least 100 m² of level floor space
  • Access for trucks to location
  • Owning a forest or having a reliable partner for resources
  • Connection to power grid close by

Profitability of a CHP Container System

The profitability of a wood gas system depends on many different factors, which have to be examined in detail and taken into account for planning. We are happy to discuss the details with you in person and look at the local conditions to calculate the profitability of your project. Using this data, we are able to realize a system customized to your needs.

Existing CHP systems

  • You have a CHP system and want to convert it to wood gas operation?
  • Your system is not working as it is supposed to and the producer won’t help?
  • You cannot or do not want to continue using your existing feed-in rate?

Contact us now, so we can start pre-project planning. Our team of engineers will determine if a plant modification or the construction of a new system is the more reasonable option for you. With the report of the results you have a great basis of clear facts and data, to make a solid investment decision. For your unwanted feed-in rate we offer an interesting model for replacing it.


Infos & Services

For our wood gas container CHP systems we offer some useful information, to make your decision for a system by Enbekon easier.

Price Information

For specific prices please contact us, so we can prepare a turnkey offer for your situation of requirements, construction and operation.

Thank you for understanding and being interested.

Good to know

Our drying and wood gasification technology is able to work with almost every quality of chopped wood. Even wood from garden waste or street works can be used.

With our additional multiple-sifting technology, you can even refine waste wood. Here, the drying and sifting process with different grids runs simultaneously. A profitable additional business.

Before deciding to invest, a few measures, like checking the connection to the grid, must be taken. Additional costs may arise, during the pre-project planning, these will be credited to you for the realization of your system. We will inform you in detail about the offer and will be with you from the start until the completion of your system.

From your decision until the completion of your project please be prepared for >4 months of production, construction and commissioning.

Other Technical Details

Due to the technical variety, we will supply you with all other technical details about your particular device in the corresponding data form.

Operating Periods

Our systems have been running for multiple years with almost no problems and exceeding the prognoses.

One of the reasons for this is us already including the maintenance cycles in our calculations. Generally, an annual period of operation of about 85% (approx. 7440 hours) is to be expected.

Installation service and Personal contribution

Since we offer our systems ready to use, we also take care of assembly and installation.

You may also take over parts of the systems assembly or installation yourself or include local professionals in this task. If you are interested in doing so, we are happy to coordinate this with you.
