Ludan Environmental Technologies (LET) Ltd.’s (a fully owned subsidiary of Ludan Group), Almere Biogas Plant was officially opened on 7.9.17 in an inauguration event held at the site in the Netherlands.
Almere biogas plant produces 500 m3 of green gas /hour to grid and 5,000 ton per year of liquefied CO2, based on a mix of manure and agri-waste. It is expected that the use of renewable, non-polluting energy will save an emission of 2,300 tons of CO2/ year.
The project is located at Hameiweg near the city of Almere. It is delivered under Groen Gas Almere BV, a special project company. Partners in the Joint Venture are, Ludan Energy Overseas BV, a subsidiary of Ludan Environmental Technologies Ltd., Berkhof BV, Meewind and Stichting DE-on.
Ludan Environmental Technologies designed and built the plant through its Dutch subsidiary, Ludan Renewable Energy, a leading Waste to Energy engineering and construction company with a track record to date of 15 agri-waste based biogas plants with a total production of over 30 MW(th). Ludan Maintenance and Operations BV, another Ludan Environmental Technologies subsidiary, is providing the project O&M services on a long-term basis.
Berkhof BV will be active in the supply of manure and agri-waste to the plant. Berkhof is a prominent player in the agri-waste collection and transportation supply market in the Netherlands. Essent, the largest energy company in the Netherlands and part of the RWE group, is the green gas off-taker and Linden Gas, the world’s largest industrial gas company, is the CO2 off-taker.
In his speech at the event, Tidhar (Teddy) Golan, CEO of LET said: ”Ludan is proud in the development, construction and operations of this project. We consider this project to be a success story and it is an important addition to our portfolio of biogas projects in the Netherlands. We hope we will enjoy similar positive experiences in our other projects that are now under construction. The Netherlands has been and will continue to be a major hub of our Waste to Energy operations in Europe.”
