The plant will be powered by wood chips and agricultural residues and will generate approximately 215 MW of cleaner energy for industry and nearby households, reaching over 60 percent efficiency when operating in cogeneration mode. The overall design, engineering and construction of the plant will be delivered by GE Steam Power Systems in addition to the integration of the in-house critical parts of the power block, including the circulating fluidised bed boiler, steam turbine, generator and air quality control systems.

“We are pleased to work with GE on this project and with their approach to focus on optimizing the technical solution for this plant outcome of the plant” said Michael Corten, CEO, Belgian Eco Energy. “GE’s technology will help us reach the highest net efficiency, reduce operational costs.”

BEE’s new plant also will be fitted with a district heating system of approximately 110 MW thermal energy to supply heating to industries and households in the city of Ghent, Belgium. Commercial operation is planned for 2019.
