Ngodwana biomass project to go ahead



ELB Engineering Services (ELB), KC Cottrell, and the ELB Educational Trust have been appointed as engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contractor for the 25 MW biomass project by Ngodwana Energy. The consortium will erect a biomass plant alongside the Sappi Ngodwana Mill in Mpumalanga. The scope of work is to supply a 25 MW biomass power plant which will use waste material from the surrounding plantations to generate power, to feed power into the national grid. The power plant will burn the biomass in a boiler to produce steam which will drive a turbine to generate electricity. A high-efficiency air pollution control system will be installed on the boiler flue gas to ensure that emissions are well below the new requirements. The consortium has worked with Ngodwana Energy since mid-2014 and has had design documents approved by all stakeholders, allowing for quicker deployment of the project.
