Aalborg Energie Technik a/s (AET) Biomass Power Plant

PowerCrop - Russi, Ravenna, Italy

The 30 MWe biomass-fired power plant is situated in Russi, Ravenna.


The joint venture between the Italian company Termokimik Corporation (TKC) and AET will provide the equipment for a biomass-fired power plant, including an AET Biomass Boiler, to be erected in the city of Russi. The project is owned by PowerCrop Russi S.r.l., a company owned and operated by Enel Green Power and Seci Energia.


The AET Biomass Boiler is designed for a fuel heat input of 88 MWt and will generate live steam at 122 bara and 542°C. The AET Biomass Boiler will, at normal continuous rating, have a fuel heat input of 84 MWt, and the power plant will then produce 30 MWe (gross).


The annual power production corresponds to the consumption of around 84,000 households, and the biomass-fired power plant permits a reduction of carbon emission of 117,000 tonnes of CO2/year.


A joint venture has been formed between TKC and AET in order to utilise both companies’ strong competencies:

  • TKC is a highly regarded Italian engineering and contracting company with special expertise in power plants.
  • AET with its reputation for consistently delivering well-functioning biomass-fired plants, which has high availability and a very high efficiency.

The strict emission requirements of the project will be fulfilled using Best Available Technology, including AET Combustion System, AET Biomass Boiler, electrostatic precipitator (ESP), bag filter and NOx and CO catalysts.

The plant is to be completed and commissioned in 2019.
