Transformer stations for renewable energy sources

We offer specialized stations adapted to renewable energy sources in concrete housing. We have a wide range of station power from 250 – 6300 kVA with complete equipment individually selected for the needs of a given project. Low-voltage switchboards adapted to non-standard voltages, including 800V. Medium voltage switchboards and telemechanics adapted to the requirements of local power plants throughout the country. The wide range of station dimensions in our offer allows you to choose a size optimized for the generating capacity.

Transformers for renewable energy sources

Dry resin and oil transformers dedicated to photovoltaic farms. Secondary voltage 400 or 800V adapted to the voltage of the inverters. Primary voltage adapted to the external network of a given power plant throughout the country. Our offer also includes transformers with a higher THD level. Additionally, upon special request, transformers can be equipped with an electrostatic screen and other additional accessories.

Biogas plants and incineration plants - more than green energy

Environmental pollution and climate changes force the demand for green energy. Directives of the European Union and domestic acts worked out by particular countries impose an obligation to resort to renewable energy sources. Constantly growing prices of electricity add to the picture. Construction of biogas plants is one of the methods to halt the climate change and obtain considerable savings both in industrial plants and in agricultural holdings. Compared to other renewable energy sources, biogas plants offer an immense potential. They bring about a number of possibilities and pose no problems with construction and development. Perhaps this is why biogas plants in Poland enjoy growing popularity. It is estimated that their share in the overall renewable energy market will increase every year.

Biogas plant – pros and cons. Why is the construction of a biogas plant profitable?

The construction of a biogas plant is a method to reduce the costs of sourcing electrical and heat power to the minimum. And although the investment requires financial outlays at first, the statistics show that in the case of large biogas plants, the return on investment is possible only after 3 years. In Poland, investments of this type are usually made at industrial plants, wastewater treatment plants, landfills and agricultural holdings. In the case of the latter, creating one biogas plant for several holdings becomes more and more popular, which reduces initial unit costs. As part of environmental schemes, there is also a possibility of being granted a subsidy for the construction of a biogas plant.

Not only do biogas plants help generate energy, but they also mitigate the problem of waste disposal – in this case it is biomass that functions as input to digestion tanks. Under appropriate temperature and bacteria action, the biomass is processed into biogas with high concentration of methane and carbon dioxide. A percentage concentration of methane defines the calorific value of biogas – the higher it is, the more calorific the biogas. Fermentation waste forms the so-called digestate. In the case of agricultural biogas plants, it is rich in organic matter and can be used to fertilise fields.

Agricultural biogas plant - the future of Polish energy management

Agricultural biogas plants represent the sector of renewable energy sources that generates the greatest potential. There is a lot of waste in agricultural holdings that is suitable for becoming biomass. It can be of animal origin – manure, liquid manure, slaughterhouse waste, or of plant origin – maize silage, rape straw, marc of fruit and vegetables and plenty other types of waste that without biogas plants requires appropriate landfilling and disposal, generating additional costs for the holding. What it more, an agricultural biogas plant allows obtaining digestate that is void of contaminants, including bacteria harmful to health and heavy metals accumulating in the post-digestion mass from wastewater treatment plants and landfills. The generated electrical power may be used by a given agricultural holding or sold to a power engineering plant. On the other hand, electrical energy generated in the agricultural or industrial biogas plant is most frequently used to meet the needs of a given holding or plant. It can be used for thermal insulation of buildings and in technological processes. However, reselling such energy entails quite large losses generated within a heating network. Therefore, biogas plants intended to generate heat power should be located close to buildings they are supposed to supply power to.

Electrical power from biogas - how to obtain it?

To obtain electrical or heat energy from biogas, it is necessary to incinerate it. Biogas powers cogeneration units allowing to obtain an adequate type of energy. If it is processed exclusively into electrical power, a power generator that allows processing chemical energy into electrical energy is an indispensable element. Transformer stations, allowing changing the current voltage and its adequate distribution for the purpose of supplying it to particular holdings or distributing it to a power engineering plant, also form necessary links in this process. It is worth adding that electricity obtained from biogas represents renewable energy and the power engineering plant is obliged to repurchase it from the generating entity. Therefore, if a holding or a power engineering plant are not capable of using the energy, they can obtain additional funds from selling it.

Electrical system for biogas plants and incineration plants - rely on the best professionals

EG System delivers comprehensive energy solutions for biogas plants and incineration plants. Our offer includes both design and executive services. We provide designs in the field of supplying and exporting power from power generating sources. We develop executive diagrams of electrical systems for supplying power to generation sources. We monitor the designs and correctness of all arrangements allowing the connection of a generation source or industrial plant to the power grid. While serving as a contractor in biogas plants, EG System builds MV and LV lines, delivers, installs and starts devices in MV and LV transformer stations. As part of comprehensive services we also provide power supply to the loads at the power engineering plant.

Power supply to biogas plants - all solutions in one place

A biogas plant cannot exist without an appropriate power supply system, both external and internal. The former mainly includes systems assembled outside buildings, i.e. MV connections and MV cables leading from the cable joint of a power engineering plant to the transformer station of a biogas plant. These also include cables linking particular elements of the facility that require power supply. A transformer station with switchgears and elements allowing the distribution of electricity within the biogas plant are necessary. EG System provides comprehensive delivery of solutions necessary to create a safe and efficient power supply system of a biogas plant.
