Second biomass CHP to supply Belgian industrial area

Wärtsilä will deliver a BioPower 5CEX plant which will burn non-contaminated wood residues supplied by the local forestry industry. The company will also enter into a full O&M contract to cover operation and maintenance after the plant is commissioned.

Due for delivery in July 2008, the new plant is a duplicate of the existing BioPower plant installed by Wärtsilä. Both plants will deliver hot water to local industrial businesses, with the electricity generated being fed to the local grid. The two plants will be eligible for carbon emission credits (called green certificates locally) applicable in Belgian Wallonia.

The plants are also highly automated, enabling unmanned operation.
