15 MWe cogeneration plant for 15 hectare greenhouse in Russia

In May of this year Greenhouse Power Netherlands bv was awarded the contract for a 15 MWe cogeneration plant to be installed at a 15 Ha greenhouse in Belgorod Russia. The project consists of 5 x Ecomax 30, containerized CHP units, with full heat and CO2 recovery. The Ecomax systems will be an integrated part of a total energy centre which delivers heat and CO2 to the greenhouse including electricity to power the grow lights. In addition to supplying the entire cogeneration plant, Greenhouse Power Netherlands will also provide a custom made service solution in Russia to ensure excellent service for the life time of the product.

The Ecomax greenhouse solution developed by Greenhouse Power Netherlands is a fully containerized, world wide applicable, cogeneration system based on a proven concept developed and optimized by Gruppo AB in Italy.
