China Biomass Giant NBE selects DP for its 40th Project in China

China’s largest and most successful biomass plant operator and industry pioneer NBE (National Biomass Energy Group) recently signed a 40th project with DP CleanTech.  In 2006, DP and NBE pioneered the first commercial biomass power plant in China in Shanxian province, and since then the industry has grown and matured significantly. NBE today is the world’s largest owner operator of biomass to power plants. 
 
NBE’s 40th biomass project will be located in Changli Industrial Zone, Qinhuangdao City, Hebei province. DP will provide its most advanced, modified biomass solution to the Changli project, with modifications based on accumulated operational and design experience from other NBE projects such as Shangcai, Mengcheng and Pizhou. New designs will be applied to the furnace and silos.  Changli will be a 1*30 MW CHP project covering more than 1.5 million m2 heating area, using  300,000 tons of fuel per annum to generate more than 220 MKWh electricity per year.  The project will improve the local environment and will directly increase local farmers’ income by more than CNY 80 million CNY per year.   
 
According to official statistics from the “China Biomass & WtE Power Regeneration Monitoring Report of the National Energy Administration” the total installed capacity for biomass power in Hebei is 364MW, with NBE projects using DP technology providing 240MW, or 66% of the total capacity. Overall, this project will be DP’s 77th biomass project in China.  
 
DP CleanTech CEO Simon Parker commented: “We are delighted to sign the 40th milestone project contract with our long term strategic client – NBE. Our strong ties on biomass can be traced back over ten years to China’s 1st biomass demonstration project in Shanxian in 2006.  Since then, we have worked together continuously to modify and optimize the solutions, and NBE power plants continue to lead the industry in efficiency and operational excellence”.
