South Africa: Barloworld Power to supply biogas plant
Issue 279 - 17 Jun 2014
Bosch Projects has given South Africa’s Barloworld Power a contract to supply equipment for a 4MW biogas-to-power project in Bronkhorspruit, 78km north-east of Boksburg. The clean electricity produced by the project will be used for an automotive plant in Rosslyn, Pretoria. The Bronkhorspruit Biogas Power Plant Pty Ltd is an independent power producer formed by Bio2Watt, which has a contract to purchase waste from the Beefcor cattle farm. About 40,000 t/yr of cattle manure and a further 20,000 t/yr of mixed organic waste will be fed into two anaerobic digesters that will produce the biogas feedstock for a combined heat and power application using Caterpillar internal combustion gas generator sets.
