Skyve CHP Station

      Gasification technologies offer an opportunity to use biomass more efficiently, especially when used in CHP. The commissioning of a novel gasification demonstration project located in Skive, Denmark, gives Kari Salo and Andras Horvath the opportunity to explore the operational challenges and the lessons to be carried forward. At the Skive gasification demonstration project in Denmark, a bubbling fluidized bed (BFB) gasifier is used to produce gas from wood-based biomass. This gas is then used in of reciprocating engines in a combined heat and power (CHP) application. Based on a low pressure BFB system and three gas engines, a single gasification plant supplies fuel to all the engines. The commissioning of the plant started in late 2007 and, using one gas engine, operations initially began in the early summer of 2008. The second and third gas engin...
