Aalborg Energie Technik a/s Biomass CHP Plant, District Heating
The biomass-fired combined heat and power (CHP) plant was built and is owned and operated by Linz AG. AET was the turnkey supplier of the CHP plant.
The use of renewable energy sources for district heating reduces emissions by approx. 50,000 tonnes CO2 per year in the city of Linz. The biomass-fired plant fulfils the requirement of Linz AG to supply green electricity and bio heating.
The biomass-fired plant also meets the ecological and economic requirements with its high fuel efficiency of 85 - 87%.
The CHP plant has an annual fuel input of 70,000 tonnes of forestry wood waste and other uncontaminated wood. More than 18% of the district heating to the city of Linz is therefore supplied from combustion of biomass.
The biomass-fired plant was delivered, installed and commissioned in 19½ months - 2 weeks ahead of schedule in 2005.
