MAN B&W Diesel Bio-fuel Power Plant for German Distillery
MAN B&W Diesel has been awarded the contract to supply two MAN B&W Diesel 5L27/38 engines for a bio-fuel power station in Eppingen-Richen, Germany. The engines' electricity production will be about 12 000 MWh/year and the installation is scheduled to be completed in the autumn of 2006.
The distillery is located in the centre of the town, and the power plant will be fitted with SCR and Oxi-catalyst equipment, supplied by HUG (Germany), to clean the exhaust. The bio-fuel engines operate on a wide range of bio-mass fuels. Existing power plant installations successfully employ fuels such as recycled animal and frying fat, and new and recycled vegetable oils. Bio-fuel engines from MAN B&W Diesel are in commercial operation in five countries in Europe.
