Fink Machine has been selected to supply two 390 kW Vitoflex 300-UF biomass boilers to the District of Saanich for Saanich Commonwealth Place to help lower their GHG emissions. The municipality says the biomass boilers will replace the rec centre’s current natural gas boilers and will reduce the facility’s greenhouse gas emissions by 90 per cent. The biomass boilers at SCP will use wood fibre byproducts that are created in local milling operations.
“This major project is another important and positive step in our journey to reduce our corporate carbon footprint and meet our goal of becoming a 100 per cent renewable community,” said Saanich Mayor Fred Haynes. “The new heating system will use a locally sourced renewable biomass fuel which will reduce costs, increase efficiency and support our local economy and climate goals,” he said.
