One of the biggest European plant to be built in Denmark by NGF Nature Energy

Facility is due to process 750,000t/yr of mainly manure and will produce 22 million m³ of biogas.

Portugal-based Efacec Engenharia e Sistemas has secured the contract to build what has been hailed as “Denmark’s most beautiful biogas plant”.

According to a contract award notice, issued last week, NGF Nature Energy gave the contract to the Portugal-based business, but no financial terms were disclosed.

The tender was originally revealed back in July, when NGF said it was looking for a contractor to build a facility capable of processing up to 750,000 tonnes per year of mainly manure, which could also produce about 22 million cubic metres of biogas.

According to the notice, the scope of the contract includes the design, supply, construction, equipment for controlling, testing and commissioning of the facility, which will be built in Korskro.

The project was designed in 2012 as part of the RealDania-støttet project to showcase how biogas plants, architecture and landscape could better work together. At the time the facility was nicknamed “Denmark’s most beautiful biogas plant”.

Korskro is an area NGF describes as one of “the most intensive livestock” regions in the country. In total, 85% of the feedstock will be manure from cattle, pigs and minks, with the rest biomass sourced from animal bedding and other livestock wastes.

NGF is Denmark’s largest producer of biogas and said in September it was ramping up production by expanding its current portfolio of four large-scale facilities to 17.
