US industrial rotation equipment supplier, Dresser-Rand (NYSE: DRC), is to provide Max Bögl Group with an indirectly fired KG 2-3 G gas turbine for its new biomass cogeneration plant in Bavaria, Germany.
The heat from the plant will be used to produce five tons of saturated steam which, in turn, will be used to produce concrete for pre-fabricated components and for electricity conversion.
As part of the company’s objective of reducing emissions, chips made from untreated wood, which will come from local agriculture and foresting farms or short rotation forestry, will be used as a CO2-neutral fuel.
By producing 2 MW of energy using renewable sources, Max Bögl will receive compensation from the German Renewable Act which provides incentives and compensation to companies that produce energy using renewable sources.
