By Erin Voegele | July 13, 2018

Spanner RE2 has announced it will install 10 biomass combined-heat-and-power (CHP) plants, including peripherals, at a major corporation in Nagano, Japan, later this year. The plants will have a combined capacity for 490 kWe and 1.1 MWth.

According to Spanner RE2, the order includes conveying and discharge technology and fully-automatic wood chip dryers. Once operational, the Japanese corporation will use heat generated by the plants to warm several on-site greenhouses. Electricity generated by the plants will be sold to the public grid.

Information released by Spanner indicates the company’s modular CHP plants can be fueled by wood chips, pellets or briquettes.

"Selling our Biomass solutions to a major Japanese company with more than 10,000 employees is a great achievement for us and also confirms that our technology is in demand all over the world," said Bernhard Seiler, head of business development and logistics at Spanner Re², in a statement. "Our customer wants to further expand its added value and generate energy sustainably and economically. Which is exactly what our biomass solutions will do while also contributing with our many years of experience in project planning.”
