Compact solution for biomethane injection into the gas grid or its transportation to the final point of biomethane utilization.
For biomethane grid injection, Biovoima has developed its own container-based solution that accurately regulates the pressure of the biomethane according to the gas network requirements and then injects it to the gas grid. The grid connection unit also enables gas odorization and the measurement of the quality and quantity of commercial gas supplied as well as the billing of the network company on that basis.
Biomethane can be injected into the gas grid immediately after the biogas upgrading, or if the gas grid passes far from the biogas plant, the biomethane can be transported there either by a pipeline or a high pressure gas transportation container. Grid connection unit can also be used for gas pressure reduction in applications other than gas grid injection.
The gas grid connection unit is built into a compact 10 ft shipping container.
The gas grid connection unit is a factory-made solution built into a compact 10 ft shipping container, which is almost completely standardized. The size of the piping, the pressure control components and the accessories of the container are selected based on project specifications such as how the gas is brought to the container, what is the gas grid pressure and how much gas can flow through the container.
In addition, the gas grid connection unit can be equipped with the following additional equipment:
A gas grid connection unit can also be used for pressure reduction in applications other than the grid injection. With the help of the gas grid connection unit 250 bar gas transportation container’s pressure can be reduced to suit the pressure requirements of a customer’s gas burner or industrial process. For example, it enables the use of biogas as a backup fuel for a district heating plant. With minor modifications, the gas grid connection unit can also be adjusted to extract the gas from the natural gas grid and supply it to the final point of gas utilization.
