Biogest receives order for biogas plant

Hydrocarbon Engineering,

Biogest has received its second order to build an agricultural biogas plant for Morevim, a financial service provider and one of the leading energy investors in Turkey. The project is the second biogas plant in Turkey, which was developed in cooperation with Enerlinc Ltd. 

After successfully entering the Asian market with an Indian and South Korean Biogest PowerCompact biogas plant, this Biogest PowerRing biogas plant represents the further expansion of the Turkish project pipeline.

The plant has an electrical output of 1.5 MW and is operated with cattle slurry and chicken manure, using 130 000 tpy of agricultural waste. The slurry will be transformed during the production process into high quality organic fertilizer, which substitutes the use of chemical fertilizers. The biogas plant is carried out in the proven high efficiency Biogest PowerRing technology, which has advantages regarding the energy efficiency and operational safety as well as the space-saving modular design.

Increasing energy gap with growing technology and population density has risen the importance of renewable energy resources. The biogas production from animal, agricultural and domestic waste is one of the most frequently studied and researched topics in Turkey. The Turkish Law forbids spreading the fresh slurry on fields, which constitutes another incentive. The published tariff by the Renewable Energy Resources Support Mechanism (YEKDEM) is attractive until June 2021 due to a six months expansion granted last month.

Morevim President Faruk Güles said: “As a company, we are already generating electricity in the solar system. The location of the biogas plant is a very advantageous region in terms of agricultural and animal waste. We wanted to increase our current electricity generation capacity and enter the biogas sector, which is an environmentally friendly system. We really like the Biogest PowerRing system. The presentations were very convincing and I decided that the Biogest technology is more efficient than other conventional biogas systems across the market.”

Mustafa Turgutalp and Mehmet Ilker from Enerlinc Biogest’s exclusive distributor said: “With our experience in energy projects, our skilled staff and the support of Biogest we are optimistic to develop further biogas projects throughout Turkey and other countries in Asia.”
