WCN Editorial Team 8 Dec 2016 EUROPE ENERGY & UTILITIES

Danish engineering and contracting firm Aalborg Energie Technik (AET) has started construction on a new turnkey biomass-fired cogeneration plant in France.

The new plant — Cogéneration Biomasse de Novillars (CBN) — will be built at the site of the Gemdoubs paper mill in Doubs, and will supply steam to the mill for its production process.

It will feature a fuel handling, an AET biomass boiler, a steam turbine, a flue-gas cleaning system and steam connection to Gemdoubs.

The plant’s fuel heat input, electrical capacity, and thermal energy stands at 63MW, 20MW, and 23.5MW, respectively.

The €87M facility is expected to produce 153GWh of green electricity annually — the equivalent to the annual consumption of 105,600 people and 215,000t of steam.
The capital of the new plant is split between a range of investors, including Akuo Energy (Nerea), Caisse des Depots et Consignation, CAM Energie, Gemdoubs and Credit Agricole Franche-Comte Investissements.
