Designed by SYCHEM S.A., the project of Techniki Bioenergeiaki Kritis 2 is the expansion of the cogeneration plant located in the Industrial Area of Heraklion, Crete. The main purpose of this biogas application is the production of electrical energy, which is sold to the Public Power Corporation.
The plant after the first GE's Jenbacher JMS 312 GS-B.L v.D25 cogeneration unit, fueled with biogas which is produced at the anaerobic digester will install within 2018 the second GE's Jenbacher unit, model JMS 312 GS-B.L v.D225, in order to extend the electrical power capacity. The thermal energy produced from the CHP unit is used for heating the digester.
The biogas plant was entirely designed and constructed by SYCHEM Group, applying cutting-edge technology at the most critical points of production process such as the collection and management of the incoming organic waste, the deodorization system, heat recovery and the innovative waste water system for the digestate effluent treatment.
