DP successfully completed the commissioning period for Elblag biomass power plant

We have some good news from our project team regarding the Elblag 25MWe plant, which is owned and operated by Energa Kogeneracja Sp. z o.o in Poland. The plant is being upgraded by DP, and you may recall that in August, we successfully completed the milestone pressure test.  Last week in mid-November, the team successfully completed the commissioning period, meeting the demanding client schedule. The successful commissioning was only achievable by the effective completion of smaller, preceding milestones such as alkaline boiling, steam blowing and trimming run. All of these processes went smoothly and were completed in a very short time, thanks to the extraordinary teamwork displayed by the worldwide and onsite team. The plant is now beginning the trial run of 720 hours of continuous operation, with possible outage of 48 hours, which will be another big challenge for the team, and one which they are focused and motivated to overcome.
