General Electric (GE) Steam Power Systems will build the new biomass plant of Belgian Eco Energy (BEE) in the Ghent port. The commercial operation, previously awarded to Veolia remains scheduled for 2019, according to BEE.

The Mechelen-based company BEE company says it wants to build a biomass plant in the Ghent port powered by sustainable wood chips and agricultural residues. The plant will generate 215 MW of energy that can be used for industry and households. It will reach a yield of 60% in cogeneration mode. In addition, the new plant will also be equipped with a heating system for the city, based on 110 MW of thermal energy. The biomass plant will also provide for spare capacity for the electric power grid.

"GE Steam Power Systems is responsible for the overall design, engineering and construction of the plant, and for the integration of the main components of the biomass plant, including the fluidized bed furnace, the steam turbine, the generator and control systems for the dedusting," says CEO Michael Corten (BEE).
