Biomass-fired CHP Plant in Bemmel, Netherlands
Heat for greenhouses
Located in a thriving greenhouse region called NEXTgarden in the Netherlands, our 15 MW biomass-fired boiler plant eliminates the need for the traditional natural gas boiler. By turning area-sourced shredded wood waste with a high ash content into renewable heat and power, local growers meet their energy demands and reach their sustainability goals. The plant reaches a high efficiency rate due to the integration of a flue gas condenser.
Uninterrupted operation milestone
This 15MWth cogeneration plant, commissioned in 2021, has achieved an uninterrupted operation in 2023 for an impressive 14 months without maintenance stops. This high-tech renewable energy facility converts local low-grade wood chips, shreds, sawdust from the timber industry and Agri residues from the food & beverage industry. This multi- fuel plant is so robust it can accept a great variety of moisture and ash content and size up to as large as 40cm into renewable heat and electricity. While maintaining very high efficiency and achieving ultra-low emissions, this operational achievement exemplifies the power of providing a reliable and sustainable energy source.
High-up time as result of:
- Best available boiler design.
- Multi fuel biomass plant
- Robust optimized fuel feeding design.
- Reliable high-quality components.
- Service & maintenance contract including preventivemaintenance.
- Continuous improvements of the design based on input from construction, engineering, operations, and maintenance experience.
