Nov 4, 2013 - Belgian renewable energy firm NPG Energy announced Tuesday the start of construction of a 3 MW biogas power plant on behalf of local terminal operator DP World/Antwerp Gateway.
The plant, which requires an investment of EUR 10 million (USD 13.5m), will commence operations in 2014. Its capacity will be sufficient to supply 6,000 households.
The biogas station will process about 60,000 tonnes of animal and plant waste annually. The produced energy will primarily be used by DP World. Possible surpluses will go to the power grid.
The investment is expected to fully pay off in 20 years.
Luxembourg-based utility Enovos acquired 51% in NPG Energy last month.
