The contract will see Abengoa responsible for the engineering, design and construction of the plant, which will be fuelled by wood chips and agro-residues.

Abengoa said through Circulated Fluidized Bed technology, biomass will be transformed into high pressure steam, which passes via a steam turbine to generate energy.

The plant will also feature a district heating system, which will distribute about 100 MW of thermal energy to industries and households in the Ghent area.
