Make the most of the mountain biomass

La technification of forestry work is key to be efficient in the biomass energy sector, a relatively new sector that grows steadily. The demand for wood in Europe will grow in the next decades by 40%, and Spain has a long way to go.

The consumption of biomass to generate heat in an automated way has multiplied by 5 in the last 10 years. Only the manufacture of pellets in Spain already requires more than three million cubic meters of pine wood in Spain.

After the commissioning of 200MWe in recent years, the use of biomass for electricity generation is expected to make a significant jump with the commissioning of another 380MW in the coming years. The government plans foresee multiply by three the current installed power, something that would be key to profitable forest exploitation.

The new EP5500 SHARK V biomass crushers, distributed in Spain and Latin America by EUROPA PARTS, have several rotors for different types of products, maximizing their production with each material. In addition to improving accessibility for the operator through its new touch screen, fully integrated with the remote control.
In Sweden, researchers from Luleå University of Technology (LUT) have designed and built an autonomous forest machine that they say is now ready for field testing. "We have replaced everything that humans do, and now we will test it," said Magnus Karlberg, professor of machine design. The drivers will be present when these vehicles go autonomously through the forest, but they will do other things. Instead of sitting in the cockpit, they will be at a distance and controlling multiple vehicles via remote controls.
