Nov. 8, 2011, Sainte-Clotilde-de-Châteaugua, QU – Later this month, a
Montreal greenhouse will install a
high-technology biomass heating system, using the same technology
utilized for the London 2012 Olympic Games.

Located just south of Montreal, the
Les Serres Lefort inc. specialty greenhouse, will unveil its new heating system designed and managed by Jean Gobeil & Associés on November 18, 2011 at 2:30pm.

The renewable energy system includes two
high-performance 6 MW boilers from Compte-Fournier linked to an open-buffer
tank of 1.3 M litres and a hot water distribution system (provided by Starbrite
Manufacturing) to heat over the 6.5 ha of greenhouses. This will also mark the North American premiere for the installation of Compte-Fournier systems

Look to the next issue of Canadian Biomass for a feature on this new biomass heating system and its operation.
