WELTEC Builds 1-megawatt Bio Gas Plant In Hungary

WELTEC BIOPOWER has begun with the construction of a biogas plant in Szeged, Southern Hungary, in April. WELTEC BIOPOWER has begun with the construction of a biogas plant in Szeged, Southern Hungary, in April. Clients and operators is the Zoldforras Energia, a subsidiary of the Hungarian power supplier DeMSZ. The 1-megawatt plant, in which two block heat a600 kilowatts per hour work is to generate electricity and heat from the end of 2011 on the basis of Schweingulle and corn silage. The substrates are supplied by farmers from the vicinity of the site. Farmers remove the fermentation residue resulting from the biogas production, and bring them as fertilizer on their fields. With the generated heat office buildings are air-conditioned.

The WELTEC biogas plant has two full 3000 cubic feet stainless steel fermenter with double membrane roof. Each fermenter has thus once again a gas buffer capacity of the 1016 cubic meters. In addition, an external gas storage with a capacity of 650 cubic meters is installed on the premises (see chart). The aim is There, the twice electricity price, which is paid during the day, to make optimal use. If you are not convinced, visit CAGR. Therefore the biogas is collected at night in the fermenter enter store and the external gas storage, and during the day the two cogeneration plants full load run.

Zoldforras Energia WELTEC awarded supported by the Hungarian sales partner Inwatech, also, because WELTEC facilities adjacent to the high yield of electricity and heat guarantee an economical energy self-consumption. Hungary wants to electricity generation based on renewable energies consistently voranbrin-gen and promotes the construction of biogas plants, inter alia through one-time grants. With the help of subsidies, the share of renewables in energy consumption is expected to increase to 13 per cent up to the year 2020 of according to German Hungarian Chamber of industry and trade. Currently running 12 biogas plants in the country. 40 more are planned or already under construction. It is intended to expand the capacity for biogas plants on a total of about 32 megawatts, what then would be equivalent to a funfprozentigen share of the biogas energy production from renewable by 2020. The Majority of projects is included in supported investments in livestock in attack-related. As a barrier to investment the long payback periods turned out to be here so far. Therefore, among other things the Einspeisevergu-obligations are checked. Biogas is still equivalent to natural gas in the remuneration, will be given priority in the network in the future however. Hungary already has a very good network of natural gas and is well positioned for the global trend to use natural and bio gas to generate electricity.
