NEW BIO POWER PLANT IN OPERATION
*Combined heat and power with local fuel*
17.3.2008 Minister Mauri Pekkarinen officially opened on 17th of March 2008
a new type of CHP Bio power plant at Lestijärvi, Finland. The plant has
been built by Lestijärvi Wood chip Cooperative. The plant's technology is based
on patented Entimos-technology.
*Emission free energy from own district *
The fuel for the Lestijärvi power plant comes from local forests. Wood chips are gasified in an Entimos-gasifier and the produced gas is used in an engine/generator set which produces ca. 0,3 MW (net) of electricity and ca. 0,65 MW (net) of heat. The electricity is directed to the national grid and the heat is used in district heating and for fuel drying.
