DP Cleantech makes further advances for Straw-fired technology in China

DP CleanTech has recently sold 3 more straw-fired power plants in China and thus increased its market dominance in the region.

DP CleanTech has recently sold 3 more straw-fired power plants in China and thus increased its market dominance in the region. DP CleanTech’s success in China has driven further improvements to its core product and the company has plans to release a new straw boiler to meet the increasing demand. To date, DP CleanTech has completed 27 biomass power plants in China and has a further 24 under development. The latest 3 boilers were sold to China Everbright International. The projects will be delivered in Linyi, Laiyang and Shuyang in Eastern China. The boilers have been designed specifically to convert Chinese soft straw into high temperature, high pressure steam. Each biomass power plant will deliver 30 MW of electricity to the China State Grid.

It is not the first time Everbright has called on DP CleanTech’s expertise in biomass. Everbright’s 30 MW straw-fired power plant in Dangshan, for which DP CleanTech also provided the technology, is close to completion. The Dangshan project is expected to provide 220,000,000 kwh of clean electricity to the State Grid annually.

DP CleanTech’s advanced European technology is continually being adapted for different markets, and a new 130tph boiler for the Chinese market  is nearing the final stages of development .  The boiler is designed to handle even larger variations in fuel quality, and is cost- optimized for the Chinese market.

Chief Technical Officer, Kenneth Jorgensen explained: “Most straw boilers are developed for dry, low ash content European fuel. The reality is that in China the straw has a high ash and moisture content”.

The new product is expected to further strengthen DP CleanTech’s dominance in the high potential Chinese market.
