Biomass harvesting helps to make unused land usable and supports energy production
More and more countries are relying on biomass burning to generate renewable energy. This biomass grows worldwide in the form of various noxious plants or weeds, among other things and needs to be harvested to utilize as energy.
For years Prinoth has been supporting biomass projects in countries such as Ethiopia, Namibia and Cuba. In addition to wood chip production in Europe, the harvesting of secondary vegetation and young stands has become the main focus for customers in these countries. In this case, biomass harvesting has two advantages:
- Previously unused areas are cleared and can be replanted.
- The burned biomass generates usable electricity.
With an existing fleet of tractors or other carrier vehicles in the 240-400 hp range, the Prinoth Harvester H600 can be easily connected via a mounting frame. No matter how chaotically bushes and trees grow, stand or lie - the H600 harvests, shreds and blows the chopped material via ejection pipe onto the trailer or collection bunker.
Prinoth also provides the complete solution with the BMH 480. In addition to the H600 attachment head, the 469 hp BMH 480 tracked vehicle has an integrated high-tipping bunker. The BMH 480-H600 team can harvest several hectares of land. When the 25 m³ bunker is full, it dumps the biomass onto the transport vehicle, which brings the harvested mass to the power plant.
