Spanish infrastructure firm Elecnor has won its first contract in Belgium, it has announced.

The company is to build a biomass-fired combined heat and power plant in the city of Ghent after signing a €86 million contract with Gentse Warmte Centrale (GWC), a joint venture between Belgian Eco Energy (BEE) and Equitix.

The 19.9 MWe plant will burn locally-sourced non-recyclable demolition wood and will be located in a former coal terminal in the port of Ghent. It will generate electricity and will also supply steam for nearby industries.

Elecnor’s contract includes geotechnical and topographical studies, engineering work, construction, and electrical and mechanical assembly.

Construction will take around two years, Elecnor said.
