Optimised biomass chp plant for monaghan integrating condensing economiser technology

Objective

Build a 28 MW optimised biomass fired CHP plant in Monaghan, Ireland. Demonstrate a bubbling fluidised bed boiler with high plant availability of 92% and innovative integrated condensing economiser technology. Demonstrate the production of energy from spent mushroom compost (a world first). Achieve an overall energy efficiency (including auxiliary load) of 44.5%, heat to power ratio of 1 and electrical efficiency will be 26%, reducing investment and operating costs by 18%. Avoid 132 kt of CO2 emissions (O.5kg/kWh). Solve a serious environmental problem which has become a major barrier to the expansion of agricultural and horticultural businesses in the region. Strengthen the position of European SMEs in the world market for biomass.
