Biogest receives another contract for the construction of a gas to grid biogas plant in the UK.

The plant has an output of 1,400 standard cubic meters of biogas per hour, which corresponds to a thermal output of approx. 7 MW. The plant operates with agricultural waste and energy crops.

The generated biogas in the plant is fed in after treatment mostly into the gas network as biomethane and is converted into electricity and heat for a smaller part in the CHP. Thus, the plant can supply approx. 4,000 households with gas. The thermal energy is used for a pasteurisation plant. 

The biogas plant is carried out in the tried and tested Biogest PowerRing technology, which has advantages regarding the energy efficiency and operational safety as well as the space-saving modular design.

A further order intake was also achieved in the service sector. The ongoing technical and biological support is being carried out additionally for an agricultural biogas plant in the near of Manchester now.

This Biogest PowerCompact biogas plant has an electrical output of 124 kW and can supply about 370 households with electricity via the grid. The plant is operated exclusively with the existing manure, which is available after the treatment process in the biogas plant as a high-quality ecological fertilizer.

A total of nine PowerCompact biogas plants were installed in the UK, with four of them operating in the OPO (Own Plant Operations) business unit. In this segment, the biogas plants are not only built by Biogest but also run jointly with the agricultural partners and the shares are held over the long term.

Biogest is an internationally active biogas plant manufacturer and operator with its headquarters in Austria and subsidiaries in the UK, France, US, Italy, Romania, Serbia and the Czech Republic. More than 130 biogas plant projects generating electricity or biomethane have been completed to date. Our reference plants are located in several European countries and the global market is served by licenced partners.

As a renewable source of energy, biogas offers technological, ecological and economic ad-vantages: energy can be generated 365 days a year, at all times of the day and night, and therefore biogas plays an important role in the mix of renewable energy from water, sun and wind. In addition to helping achieve climate protection goals, biogas also helps reduce reliance on energy imports. Decentralised energy generation also guarantees sustainable local development.
