12MWe biomass gasification cogenaration plant won U.S. Award for Corporate Excelence in Environmental Sustainability

24. September 2016

In 2011 our licensee Berkes from Uruguay commissioned the 12 MWe Weyerhauser biomass gasification cogeneration plant in Uruguay. 5 years later the plant is not only performing as designed but received the Award for Corporate Excellence in Environmental Sustainability by the U.S. Deputy Secretary.

Our client Weyerhaeuser Productos S.A. in Uruguay received the award for building the 80 MWth renewable energy facility. Additionally, the plant has been recognized as a “Project of National Interest” by the government of Uruguay. Berkes has a biomass gasification track-record of more than 800 MWth, which helped them win this project. We like to congratulate all involved in this project for this achievement and are looking forward to expanding our biomass and RDF gasification reference list with Berkes in the future.
