Greenvironment Plc (WKN: A1JLT1 / symbol: GIV1) has won an order from Bruno Bock Chemische Fabrik GmbH & Co KG for a 400 kW power plant for steam production.

Components are due to be delivered in September 2012 for commissioning the following month.

For this project, Greenvironment is working with SAACKE GmbH to deliver a low-emission solution featuring two 200 kW microturbines as well as adapted control technology, including visualisation and SCADA, in cabinets.

Capstone microturbines to be used in the project convert about 33% of fuel energy into electricity with 67% available as thermal energy in an exhaust stream of about 280°C with an oxygen content of about 18%, said Greenvironment.

Heat generated in the process is directly fed to a SAACKE gas combustion unit as hot exhaust gas. Oxygen in the exhaust gas is used to maximise the plant’s overall efficiency. Thermal energy generated in the microturbine CHP plant is optimised through an additional firing.

Dr Detlef Schmidt, managing director of Bruno Bock Chemische Fabrik, based in Marschacht in Germany, said the company’s processes to produce sulphur compounds required a lot of heat. ‘The highly efficient CHP solution from Greenvironment/SAACKE has perfectly met our requirements,’ he said.

Matti Malkamäki, CEO of Greenvironment Plc, said his company was delighted to receive its first customer for its steam solution with SAACKE so soon after the Hannover Fair, where the collaborative technology was presented.
