15 MWth Biomass Heat Plant in Lelystad Begins Operation

The 15 MWth wood-fired heating plant in Lelystad, the Netherlands, turnkey supplied by HoSt and commissioned by heat supplier Primco, has begun producing stainable heat for the district heating network of the city of Lelystad. Up to 30,000 tons of wood chips from necessary forest maintenance in the area will be combusted annually.

“The project was completed on schedule. We have nothing but praise for the various collaborations that made all success possible,” said project manager Alwin Boelsma. The heating plant can heat up to 5,000 houses and saves around 7.5 million Nm3 of natural gas. The official go-ahead for construction of the plant was given in December last year.

During the high heat demand in the morning, better known as the ‘morning ramp’, the biomass heat plant is able to supply more heat. Instead of 15 MWth, the installation then supplies 20 MWth to the grid. The extra heat is realized by two heat buffers that are charged during the night.
