GE recently announced that it has been selected by Mechelen-based Belgian Eco Energy to build the largest greenfield, 100 percent biomass-fired power plant in the world. The plant, which will be powered by wood chips and agro residues, will generate approximately 215 megawatts (MW) of clean energy for the industry and nearby households reaching over 60 percent efficiency when operating in cogeneration mode.
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.
