The plant will be capable of handling up to 1250 Nm3/hr of biogas, and will form part of a larger contract to supply a biohybrid production plant to German energy company, Erdgas Südgas GmbH. It will be capable of producing both bioLNG and LNG.
Sven Fischer, Key Account Manager BioLNG, Puregas Solutions, said: “We’re extremely proud to be involved in this innovative new project.
“Our unique CApure process is ideally suited to liquefaction projects as we are able to reduce the CO2 content of the biomethane to below 50 ppm in one step, making liquefaction to bioLNG possible.”
Wärtsilä claims that the technology for this plant presents a unique response to market needs to liquefy and store methane-based energy streams. Both gas cleaning and liquefaction are cost and energy efficient, thereby making profitable energy projects possible even for smaller gas streams.
The new biohybrid solution will be integrated into the customer’s existing biowaste-to-biogas production facility, whilst LNG production will be part of the customer’s existing pipeline gas infrastructure.
Oliver Auras, Project Director, Erdgas Südwest GmbH, “This is a very important milestone for us at Erdgas Südwest. It is a completely new concept adapted to the future needs of the German energy market, and we see a great future for this type of storage solution.”
