Thenergo announced it has commenced development of a 9MWe CHP bio-oil to energy plant in Merksplas (Belgium). The project will be operational for up to 8,000 hours per year, generating 6MWth of heat for two industrial partners, and 9MWe of electricity for the equivalent of 20,000 households.

The project, named Greenpower, and representing a total investment of €11 million, is expected to become operational in February 2009. Greenpower is a joint venture between Thenergo, the majority shareholder and operator, and the Quirynen and the Dielis families.

Greenpower will run on bio-oil extracted from the seeds of the jatropha plant. The jatropha seeds are a non-edible, high energy fruit grown on semi-arid or waste land in South East Asia. For the past five years Leysen NV, a Thenergo company, has been researching the sustainable energy potential of jatropha, from cultivation to logistics, to ensure minimal loss of primary energy during production and transportation.
