Aalborg Energie Technik a/s Biomass Cogeneration Plant
The plant has an annual fuel input of 115,000 tonnes of wet draff from local whisky distilleries and 60,000 tonnes of uncontaminated wood. The plant generates 7.2 MWe, equivalent to supplying 9,000 homes with electricity.
The combined heat and power (CHP) plant also supplies approx. 12 t/h of process steam to a pot ale/syrup processing plant. The CHP plant saves 64,000 tonnes of CO2/year.
The biomass-fired CHP plant was successfully commissioned and handed over in 2013. The official performance test, witnessed by Fichtner, showed the following performance figures:
The Rothes CoRDe was acquired in 2015 by iCON Infrastructure, who concentrates on areas where they have a particular insigth or a competitive advantage.
Rothes CoRDe and AET have a fruitful and close cooperation
2015 → : Regular inspections
2019: Maintenance of fuel dryer
The Rothes CoRDe cogeneration plant produces heat and power.
The plant utilises draff, which is a by-product from whisky production. This comes from 17 different distilleries and is mixed 50/50 with wood chips.
On 16th April 2013, HRH, Prince Charles, Duke of Rothesay, officially opened the Rothes CoRDe biomass-fired CHP plant at Rothes, Morayshire, Scotland.
