Stationary Wood Gas CHP Systems

Stationary wood gas power plants may be sized differently depending on the room available. Cascading systems are feasible with a multiple of 500 KWel.

Our service partner for stationary wood gas power plants has collected experience on the development, construction and operation of efficient, appropriate solutions, for many years. The overall costs of investment for a stationary wood gas power plant are dependant on multiple variables, which have to be discussed in detail during the projecting phase.

Since wood gas power plants produce a high amount of power and heat, our offers are directed at customers with a high consumption of both, which are mainly commercial users. Generally speaking, it is also possible for multiple private households to come together to operate a system. This is possible in different legal forms. We are happy to assist you in finding a qualified consultant for this option.

Profitability of a Wood Gas Power Plant

The profitability of a wood gas system depends on many different factors, which have to be examined in detail and taken into account for planning. We are happy to discuss the details with you in person and look at the local conditions to calculate the profitability of your project. Using this data, we are able to realize a system customized to your needs.

Here is a quick overview of the general parameters for an operational and connected 500 kWel / 1040 kWth wood gas system and its business model:
