Karlovo & Heat Biomass EOOD

Karlovo & Heat Biomass EOOD

Karlovo & Heat Biomass EOOD is an Integrated Biomass Gasification Power Plant (“IBGPP”), located in Stroevo, Bulgaria.

The project is designed to produce clean electricity from biomass utilising EQTEC Gasifier Technology and GE Jenbacher engines, with an electrical output capacity of 3.0 MWe. The power plant is based on two GE Jenbacher 620 engines and one gasification plant.

Wood chips and straw pellets are used in the gasification plant.

The IBGPP was designed using the EQTEC Kinetic Model (“EKM”) software to determine the construction specifications of all the components used in the gasification plant. This allows the plant to obtain greater efficiency and run continuously on automatic mode. The 3rd generation of EQTEC Gasifier Technology has been implemented in this project.
