UK waste feeds CHP plant in Denmark

27 September 2017

A CHP plant in Denmark will be taking delivery of refuse-derived fuel shipped in from the UK and Ireland following an agreement with Norwegian waste processing firm Geminor. The  $670m Amager Bakke energy-from-waste district heating plant in Copenhagen is well known for its 85-metre wedge-shaped roof which also serves as a ski slope, climbing wall and picnic area. The plant came online in March after five years in construction. Following the agreement with Geminor, it is now set to receive 30 000 tonnes of RDF to be consumed during its commissioning phase. The first 3000-tonne load was shipped from Ireland in August and was delivered within 48 hours, according to Geminor. Amager Bakke can process around 400 000 tonnes per year of municipal solid waste, producing up to 63 MW and 150-250 MWth for district heating, which is supplied to around 120 000 households in the Copenhagen area.
