WELTEC BIOPOWER to Build 2.4 MW Biogas Plant in Poland

WELTEC BIOPOWER, a Vechta-based manufacturer of biogas plant, will start construction on a 2.4 MW biogas plant in Dar¿yno located in the province of Pomerania, Poland in September 2012.

The plant site is located on the west side of Danzig. The substrates for producing biogas will be supplied into the four 4,438 m3 stainless-steel fermenter systems through a 50 m3 dosing feeder and four storage tanks starting from summer next year.

Besides liquid manure and maize, NEWD, the operator, will also ferment potato waste from a chip maker. Four tanks, having capacity to contain 5,000 m3 each, will provide enough space for the digestate. NEWD is also the investor of WELTEC’s first biogas plant is Poland. It previously functioned as a wind power plant operator and builder. Now, NEWD has determined to produce biogas and for this purpose it is relying on WELTEC BIOPOWER’s overseas experience. Furthermore, the Lower Saxony company is being represented on site with its subsidiary, WELTEC Polska, and can secure the economic and technical stability of the 2.4 MW biogas plant with its all-inclusive services.

Since Poland is a farming country with solid resource potential, the conditions for producing biogas are outstanding. Experts believe that the country contains the third-largest stock of resources in the Continent. The agricultural area in Poland amounts to approximately 18.5 million ha. Poland’s infrastructure conditions are also ideal for generating biogas, with subsidized heat generation and decentralized power, and a highly developed infrastructure for transporting gas and district heat.

Poland's government is currently establishing policies for the optimization of decentralized energy supply through directives and laws for biomass and biogas. The country is aiming to install not less than one agricultural biogas plant in every municipality by 2020 through the 'Biogas Development Programme 2010-2020'.
