The biogas plant, which is WELTEC BIOPOWER’s second in Latvia, will have a fermenter for 3500 m3, and is expected to start operation in July.
The final biogas storage tank has a capacity of about 6000 m3. Plans for expanding the plant with another fermenter are already under way, the company says.
Two 250 kW gas-powered engines will produce the biogas from input material such as 3500 tonnes of cattle manure, 1900 tonnes of cow dung, 500 tonnes of whole plant silage, 300 tonnes of grass silage, and 7000 tonnes of maize silage.
The combined heat and power (CHP) concept comprises the heat supply of the close-by agricultural buildings.
