This installation is one of the first biogas installations that is built in Latvia. The installation uses agricultural products and manure to produce sustainable energy and heat. Unique about this installation is the input and mixing concept. As a result of this, more difficult products such as laying hen manure, grass and straw can be digested.

The total capacity of the installation is 60,000 tons/year and the installation produces 2 MWe of sustainable electricity.
