This stationary machine is used in a biomass heating plant operated by the Strasbourg public utility company in France. It can best be described with the word “unusual” – unusually long and unusually powerful! At 16 m, the draw-in is long enough to pull the long timber directly into the machine. The biomass used in this plant is converted into steam, which drives a turbine which, in turn, produces power and hot water. The machine is driven with a maximum power consumption of 450 kW. Thanks to this impressive permanent performance, the stationary HE 700 StA machine manages up to 60 t of tree trunks per hour, which is equivalent to a throughput of around 220 lcm.
