  • Denmark : Denmark's Largest Power Plant Converts to Biomass
    April 13, 2015
    The last combined-heat-and-power (CHP) unit at Avedøre power plant in Denmark is to be converted, and will generate power instead of coal and gas from 2016.

    Thomas Dalsgaard, executive vice president at DONG Energy, said, "The decision to convert unit 1 at Avedøre Power Station means that we'll now be in a position to abandon coal and gas entirely when we're generating heat in the Greater Copenhagen area. It's a significant step in the green conversion, taken in a cost-effective way."

  • Romania : Romanian Municipality Adds 11 Jenbacher Engines for CHP
    April 13, 2015
    GE's Distributed Power Business supplied 11 Ecomagination-approved Jenbacher gas engines for a project in Romania that GE said is the country's largest gas engine-based combined heat and power (CHP) initiative for a city's local district heating.

    Four CHP stations have been installed by energy services company Bepco, and are generating 42 MW of power and 38 MW of heat for the district heating system in the city of Brasov. The plants feature 11 of GE's Jenbacher Type 6 engines, and are part of Romania's campaign to modernize older, less-efficient municipal and industrial district heating systems to reduce emissions related to energy production. An energy efficiency law is in place in the country and financial incentives are available for cogeneration projects.

  • United Kingdom(Great Britain) : RWE Opens 'UK's Largest' Biomass CHP Plant
    April 13, 2015
    The UK's largest biomass combined heat and power (CHP) plant was officially opened last week, amid promises that it will slash Scottish greenhouse gas emissions by up to 250,000 tonnes a year. RWE Innogy, the renewables arm of the German energy giant, cut the ribbon on the Markinch Biomass CHP Plant in Glenrothes, Fife, which replaces the coal and gas fired CHP power station on the site of paper and board manufacturer Tullis Russell.

    The project was supported by an £8.1m Regional Selective Assistance grant from the Scottish Government, while Forestry Commission Scotland has signed a long term contract for timber supply to the plant, providing 750,000 tonnes of timber over the next 10 years.
