Since August 2013, Springhill Farms has delivered biomethane to the Wales and West Utilities gas grid. At full capacity, the system produces 225 Nm3/h of biomethane 24/7, which is enough to supply 1,000 households with their annual natural gas consumption. Springhill Farms uses 25 percent of the gas produced to meet its own heating and power needs. Having met its original goal of energy self-sufficiency and waste processing, the farm has diversified, and Vale Green Energy has new plans for sustainable local energy production.
“We are already occupied with the next step, a new farm and digester that is four times as big as our current operation, and will be operational in Q3 2014,” Powell said. “We believe in the concept and have again awarded the biogas upgrading part of this project to Pentair Haffmans.”
