New CHP Plant will be based on renewable fuel
The local heating utility company called Sorø Fjernvarme is owned by AffaldPlus, who collects green waste from e.g. gardens and public parks in areas around Sorø city. The collected green waste is surplus wood which can be used as fuel in the new plant. This way the energy of the local biomass can be reclaimed and utilized for district heating and electricity.
Base load heat and power plant
The plant is designed for operation on 100% green waste but can also utilise normal wood chips, providing extensive fuel flexibility. The plant will get a thermal capacity of 12 MW heat and approx. 1 MW electricity. The plant efficiency will be up to 110% (LCV based) depending on the fuel quality.
Design and construction
The furnace design started in Q4 2019, and installation works started in December 2020. The plant was handed over for commercial operation during the autumn of 2021.
The scope of Dall Energy comprises a biomass gasification furnace and a hot oil boiler, including all associated auxiliary equipment e.g. fans, piping, a fuel feeding system, ash handling system and electrical & control systems. Dall Energy is responsible for turnkey delivery of the equipment, including design, procurement, installation and commissioning.
