‘New generation’ biomass fired CHP in Duiven
By 2022 there is to be a 15 MWth biomass fired combined heat and power plant (CHP) constructed in Duiven, the Netherlands. The plant is being built by bioenergy installations company HoSt, on behalf of Dutch energy company Sparkling Biomass B.V.
The ‘new generation’ installation will be able to combust wood as well as other future biomass and residues. All heat, electricity and steam produced at the plant will be made from wood waste derived from the municipality of Duiven and is supplied to a feed mill. All of the remaining green electricity is then supplied to the grid.
Wouter Kok, sales manager for HoSt states “This project is the result of good collaborating with Sparkling, where we have strived to build an installation for the future. That means constructing a sustainable and flexible plant with a minimal carbon footprint and maximum use of sustainable energy.”
In the future the installation will be equipped with an advanced technology that will enable other kinds of biomass and residues to be combusted.
