Germany’s biogas plant supplier, WELTEC BIOPOWER, has ordered a microturbine CHP plant from Greenvironment, also based in Germany, to be installed at a 24,000 m2 biogas park being developed in Barsikow, Brandenburg, Germany.
Incorporating a Capstone CR600 microturbine and a remote monitoring system, the CHP plant will be combined with the biogas processing plant.
The thermal energy contained in the exhaust flow of the microturbine will be used as process heat for the plant.
The biogas plant will, from this summer, produce an annual volume of about 8.4 million standard m3 of biogas and 3 million standard m3 of biomethane from input substances – maize, whole plant silage, and dry chicken manure.
The objective is to achieve a self-sufficient heat supply of the processing plant by means of a heat-controlled CHP plant with integrated microturbines.
The electrical energy generated will be fed into the grid of the local energy supplier. The quantity corresponds to an electrical output of 2.2 MW.
In its capacity as general contractor, WELTEC BIOPOWER is responsible for the overall planning, turnkey set-up including the infrastructure, approval planning, production and installation, as well as the operational launch and subsequent biological supervision of the biogas park in Barsikow.
