Aalborg Energie Technik a/s Biomass Cogeneration Plant
The cogeneration plant is owned by a special project vehicle (SPV), which was created by DRT, ENGIE Cofely and Caisse des Dépôts. These partners have financed, built and now operates the cogeneration plant for a minimum of 20 years, utilising local biomass.
The plant produces 97 GWh of electricity/year and 214 GWh of steam/year without using fossil fuels. This reduces CO2 emissions by 20,000 tonnes/year as the plant efficiency will be more than 60%.
The biomass-fired cogeneration plant has an annual fuel input of 150,000 tonnes of forestry wood, and uncontaminated residues from wood processing and DerTal. DerTal is a tall-oil and by-product from DRT.
The performance of the boiler was successfully tested by Bureau Veritas in 2015:
The plant was completed and commissioned in 2015.
