New, large scale biomass plant opts for energy efficiency

27 January 2012
More than forty Danfoss VLT® frequency converters are used in a new Dutch the biomass plant’s sophisticated process control systems.

Chosen for their high efficiency in large scale operations, the drives also support the plant’s green ambitions. The drives' variable speed control help to reduce CO2 emmissions by 23,000 tons a year.

“We want this plant to set the standard and be a model that we can reuse in subsequent projects. We drafted the functional requirements for the electrical system. Important elements in this are the forty or so Danfoss VLT® frequency converters, including a large number of 45 kW drives. These are used, for instance, to drive the many pumps and mixers that are essential in keeping the fermentation process going. There are ten 22 kW and 30 kW Seepex pumps between the large tanks,” says Heino Oltwater of HME Engineering
