EnviTec Biogas gets new biogas plant order in New York
German biogas plant specialist EnviTec Biogas AG (ETR:ETG) on Thursday said it is continuing its steady growth in the United States with a new contract for the construction of a biogas plant at a dairy farm in New York state.
Commissioning is slated for September 2016.
With a planned electric capacity of 633 kilowatts (kW), the plant will be operated using the liquid manure of more than 2,800 Holstein cows.
“The resultant green energy is sufficient to provide electricity to more than 400 households, along with the farm”, says Steve McGlynn, managing director of EnviTec Biogas USA Inc., which is headquartered in Stanley, New York.
This contract follows the successful operation of EnviTec facilities in the Lawnhurst and Noblehurst dairy farms, commissioned in 2013 and 2014.
Part of the construction of the biogas plant is being financed through subsidies provided by the New York State Energy & Research Development Agency and Unites States Department of Agriculture.
