|The project constitutes the development and operation of a 19.9 MW Biomass-to-Energy plant in Ghent, Belgium. The project is supported with a 15-year Flemish Government subsidy, via Green Certificates.|
Once operational, Gentse Warmte Centrale (GWC) will process around 150,000 tonnes per annum of demolition waste wood that is not fit for recycling, sourced from industrial companies and households and processed to specification at sites across Benelux. It will have a capacity of 19.9 MW.
Fuel for the project will be delivered through a combination of barges and trucks. The Ghent-Terneuzen canal runs alongside the Ghent Coal Terminal flows into the Western Scheldt, the estuary of the Scheldt River and a major shipping route of the Benelux region. This facilitates the transportation of fuel by barge from The Netherlands and other parts of Belgium.
This asset is one of the top ten investments in its region by total equity investment by Equitix. The information contained in this case study was last updated on 31 October 2021. This information will be reviewed and updated periodically.
