Biomass boiler house and pellet storage room created from shipping containers

Biomass boiler house and pellet storage room created from shipping containers

Biomass boilers are becoming very popular with the shift toward sustainable energy sources - and shipping containers are a popular way of housing both the boiler and a store room to facilitate safe, dry storage of pellets used in the boiler.

We were approached by our customer to supply a modified 40ft shipping container to a plan layout supplied by the boiler manufacturer.  We worked together with the boiler supplier to produce a final design - a 40ft high cube which was divided into the boiler room and pellet store.  The auger for pellet feed was delivered and fitted as we built the container in Liverpool.

We made apertures for power feed cables through the floor of the container, added vents in the side walls, fitted flat steel plate for pipe and cable fixings on the interior, and fitted ply to the walls, floor and ceiling in the pellet store.

 The pellet store needed a steel door with wooden slats inside it to contain the pellets when the door is opened, which was no problem with our container conversion project.  The client was very pleased with the final product which was built to match the plans very effectively.  The image for this post shows the pellet store, complete with ply lining.

Are you considering a biomass boiler and need somewhere to store the boiler and the pellets?  Give us a call or contact us here and we can provide a detailed quote.
