Sugimat will supply a turnkey biomass steam boiler to Europe’s largest olive oil producer

The steam boiler will produce 15 Tn/h and will use olive marc as fuel.

Sugimat will carry out for San Miguel Arcángel factory in Jaén the turnkey project of an aquatubular steam boiler for the combustion of olive marc. The biomass steam heater, with a production of 15 Tn/h and an equivalent thermal power of 11 MW, will be designed by the German firm ERK, of which Sugimat is the only licensee in Spain. In addition to the heater, Sugimat will supply other components for the complete installation of the plant.

The big agro-industrial companies continue to trust Sugimat when contracting their equipment for energy generation with biomass. In this case, it has been the largest olive marc producer in Europe, San Miguel Arcángel, which has contracted Sugimat for the design, manufacture and turnkey installation of an aquatubular steam boiler for burning grape marc. This biomass, derived from the process of extracting oil from olives, is characterized by its high calorific value.

The heater, with a steam production of 15 Tn/h and an equivalent thermal power of 11 MW, will be designed by Ecknokessel of ERK, a leading German company in the field of engineering and boiler technology. Sugimat is the company’s only licencee in Spain.

In addition to the heater, Sugimat will supply the combustion system with pusher grate, the company’s own technology, the control system and the smoke treatment to guarantee the quality of the emissions into the atmosphere.

The plant will have the new system of computer vision applied to combustion developed by Sugimat that allows to adapt in real time to the changes in the characteristics of the fuel.

This heater, with an operating guarantee of 8,000 hours per year, will replace a current equipment and will also allow to save an important current consumption of diesel oil, since it will use the extracted marc as biomass for the generation of energy.
