A consortium formed by five Extremadura companies has set up a pilot plant for microtrigeneration, modular and transportable, from biomass and solar energy concentration. The plant is located in Gévora (Badajoz) in a company that uses the electricity, heat and cold generated.
The plant has two energy producing elements: a thermal oil biomass boiler of 400 kWt, designed and manufactured by Innergy, which participates in Expobiomasa, and currently uses P30-P16 forest splinter; and a Fresnel type solar field with 18 collectors. For the production of electricity, an ORC minimodule with a turbine capable of generating 56 kWe has been installed. In addition, an absorption machine can generate 35 kW of cold.
During the next 5 years the plant will will continue to investigate hybridization of renewable energy systems and models to provide solutions to the industrial sectors of Spain and the rest of Europe.
