Biogest has received its second order to build an agricultural biogas plant for Morevim, a financial service provider and a major energy investor in Turkey.
The project has been developed in partnership with Enerlinc. After successfully entering the Asian market with biogas plants in India and South Korea, this Biogest PowerRing plant represents further expansion for the company in Asia.
The plant will have an electrical output of 1.5 MW and will utilise cow slurry and chicken manure, processing approximately 130,000 tonnes of agricultural waste per year. The slurry will be transformed into high-quality organic fertiliser, substituting the use of chemical fertilisers.
Morevim’s president, Faruk Güles, said: “As a company, we are already generating electricity in the solar system. The location of the biogas plant is very advantageous region in terms of agricultural and animal waste.
“We wanted to increase our current electricity generation capacity and enter the biogas sector, which is an environmentally friendly system.
“We really like the Biogest PowerRing system. The presentations were very convincing and I decided that the Biogest technology is more efficient than other conventional biogas systems across the market.”
Mustafa Turgutalp and Mehmet Ilker from Enerlinc, Biogest’s exclusive distributor, said: “With our experience in energy projects, our skilled staff, and the support of Biogest, we are optimistic to develop further biogas projects throughout Turkey and other countries in Asia.”
