This project aimed to reduce Tesco’s carbon footprint and energy costs while promoting sustainable practices within the retail sector. Enerpower conducted a comprehensive assessment of Tesco’s energy requirements and identified the most suitable biomass boiler system for their needs.

A 500kW Wood Chip Biomass Boiler was installed at the Tesco Galway facility. The Hargassner MAGNO-UF 440 model ranks at a boiler class 5 with 93.6% efficiency. This boiler featured advanced technologies, efficient combustion and the capacity to meet Tesco’s heating demands.

Based on the site evaluation, Enerpower designed a customised system that integrated seamlessly into Tesco’s existing infrastructure. Enerpower’s experienced engineers conducted the installation, coordinating with Tesco’s staff to minimize distributions to daily operations. Following the installation, the biomass boiler underwent rigorous testing to ensure optimal performance and efficiency.

In addition to the biomass boiler, a 36.0 Ton capacity wood pellet silo was installed. This is where the wood pellet fuel will be stored to feed into the boiler. Government Grants Available
