AFE 140 Granite State, UNH Northwest Heat Plant Tour

Northwest Heating Plant

Durham, NH

Tour starts at 5:30

     Cogen plant

In 2018 UNH commissioned the design and construction of its Northwest Heat Plan (NWHP), a new biomass-fired, district heat plant. The plant utilizes semi-dry woodchips, which are a new and innovative biomass fuel that is widely used in Europe but just beginning to gain adoption in the United States.

UNH is the first higher education institution to use semi-dry chips in the United States. This emerging biomass fuel type has benefits when compared to more traditional wet woodchips and wood pellets. This state-of-the-art facility provides heating hot water to five buildings totaling over 100,000 net square feet of academic and research space.
