The biogas installation at Pronk in Warmenhuizen (Netherlands) initially contained a 190 kWe CHP unit. Immediately after the startup, the istallation is expanded with a second CHP unit of 190 kWe.
A year later, an additional digester and a 340 kWe CHP unit was placed to increase the capacity of the plant.
Unique about the biogas plant at Pronk is that low-grade co-materials are digested. The company uses cutting vegetable waste from a vegetable processor in the area as an input product for the digester. The solid feeding input system placed by HoSt is suitable for the shredding and processing of such input streams.
