E.ON, Promat Partner on 4-MW Cogeneration Plant in Belgium


By Editors of Power Engineering

E.ON and Promat have announced a partnership on a 4-MW cogeneration plant to power a Promat factory in Tisselt, Belgium.

E.ON will bulid, own and operate the plant, which will include a gas turbine and a heat recovery steam generator. Total efficiency of the installation is expected to be 80 percent, and should save 2,000 tons of carbon dioxide emissions verses traditional natural gas generation.

This development is the second cogeneration plant to be constructed in Belgium by E.ON this year, as the company hopes to expand its business-to-business environmentally-friendly energy solutions.

“Sustainable solutions like this, which can help companies to reduce their energy cost and lower CO2 emissions, play a key role in tomorrow’s energy world,” said Bernd Schumacher, CEO of E.ON Connecting Energies. “We consider Belgium as a market that bears significant potential for such decentralized energy solutions. Consequently, we have already expanded our team in Belgium and plan to further strengthen our offering in this market.”

Promat is a manufacturer of fire protection and high performance insulation products.
