DONG Energy transforms its Studstrup plant from coal to biomass


Denmark's DONG Energy declared it has changed one unit of its Studstrup power plant in Aarhus to function on wood pellets instead of coal, while the second unit will be deferred, aiding to reduce carbon emissions.

The 1.3 billion crown ($195.7 million) transformation would permit Denmark's second-biggest city to cut emissions by 310,000 tonnes yearly since it wants to become carbon-neutral by 2030, as stated by the company on Monday. The 360 megawatt capacity unit will be able to provide heating to over 100,000 Danish homes and power to approximately 230,000 homes using biomass. The second unit of a similar size, which has been operating on coal, will be put on reserve, signifying that it could be activated within a month, according to a spokesman. The firm has previously told the Nordic electricity market it programmed to mothball the unit from April 2017.
