Electricity from wood chips

Finnish forests grow by almost 100 million cubic meters a year, and just over half of it has been used in recent years. We are worried about rural depopulation, so could we not produce energy by utilizing our renewable energy sources locally and this way create more jobs in the countryside?

Volter's CHP-plant is a self-sufficient solution that uses wood chips to provide all the electricity and heat required for an entire housing estate. For example, it takes approximately 20 cubic meters of wood to cover the annual electricity and heating needs and to charge an electric car for a family of six.


The container-packed CHP-plant produces, for example, enough electricity and heat for the annual needs of a farm or an entire small housing estate.

Electricity is produced by gasifying wood chips. Waste heat from the process can be used in hydronic underfloor heating, preheating of air-conditioning or domestic water, for example. Your CHP-plant can be landscaped to match your own surroundings.


We have put together our team from young and motivated professionals who are fully committed to achieving our mutual goal. Our team is mainly made up of engineers. A high level of education is not, however, the be-all and end-all rather than a shared factor that gives us all a good insight into how to put ideas into practice.

We do not strive to do everything ourselves. Seamless cooperation with our subcontractors who know what we need has made it possible for us to concentrate on the areas we know best. Our personnel and subcontractors have gained invaluable knowhow through solving practical problems.
