Renewable energy from pruning wood
Lelystad is enriched with a bioenergy heating plant. This is not just a bioenergy plant. It is the best of the Netherlands when it comes to CEO Rene Buwalda of Primco, part of investment company Momentum Capital. HoSt turn-key supplied the wood-fired installation in October 2018. Since then, the performance exceeds expectations.
“I believe in a well balanced mix of alternative and cleaner energy sources to ensure a technical and economical feasible energy conversion, which leads to a more and more energy independence of the Netherlands”, says Buwalda. Annually, 21,000 tonnes of wood waste (prunings), originating from necessary forest maintenance in the area, is combusted and converted into heat for the district heating network.
