A 6MW Low Temperature Gasifier is established at the DONG Energy owned Asnaes Power Plant. Financial support for the project was secured and construction began during fall of 2010. Once construction was completed the plant started up on straw and tests were carried out with different types of fuel.
The project was divided into three phases; Up-scaling, Integration and Demonstration. These phases were completed according to the shown schedule.
The 6MW demonstration plant is partly funded by DONG Energy and partly by Public Service Obligations from Energinet.dk. Energinet.dk has supported the demonstration project with approximately DKK 35 million. Public Service Obligations are given to projects that have the potential to benefit the Danish society and electricity sector. Energinet.dk's funds are financed through transport tariffs imposed on electricity consumption.
