Benefits for You

The benefits of an AET power plant include:

  • The high performing AET Biomass Boiler
    - High boiler efficiency
    - Low in-house power consumption
    - Low flue gas emissions
    High fuel flexibility - low operating cost
    - High combustion efficiency
    - Best Available Technology
  • High plant efficiency
    - Optimised heat balance
    - Good business case for you
  • High availability
    - Improved business case for you

Determining the optimal design for a biomass-fired power plant involves in many parameters such as optimum operating conditions, fuel, boiler, turbine, steam/water cycle etc.

AET can assist you in optimising the plant parameters as our expert staff have many years of experience and extensive knowledge of steam cycles and steam turbines.
