Heat & Power (H&P), the Italian small-scale cogeneration ESCo has started its new 195 kWe biogas plant in Genova.
The plant uses three 65 kW microturbines fed by Waste Water Treatment biogas from the local Utility Mediterranea delle Acque, and will soon boosted up to 260 kWe.
Power is used by the site’s water treatment equipment while the heat will used by the anaerobic digestors.
Under the terms of the construction, H&P bought, installed and manages the plant while the utility supplies the biogas.
The two partners will share any profits.
