The manufacturing facilities of BioGTS Ltd., located in Jyväskylä, are in a bustle when the biogas plant for Haminan Energia is being welded together. The factory-made biogas plant delivered by BioGTS to Haminan Energia is the first of its kind in Finland.

The biogas plant for Haminan Energia, an energy company located in Southern Finland, is based on a new technology developed by BioGTS Ltd., which enables the building of the entire biogas plant indoors in a factory. All the parts are installed indoors in the factory, and the ready-made plants are transported to the destination either as a whole or in parts, which allows for quick plug-in installation on-site. This can help to minimize expensive construction time on-site, as well as to achieve a higher quality of work in addition to lower costs.

“The biogas plant for Haminan Energia is built in its entirety indoors in our manufacturing facilities in Jyväskylä, Finland. The 25-meter reactors are transported to the destination either as whole or in parts, which allows for quick plug-in installation on-site. This is a completely new way to build biogas plants in Finland”, says BioGTS Ltd.’s CEO, Mika Rautiainen.

Haminan Energia Ltd.’s biogas plant will process biodegradable waste from municipalities and agriculture. The biogas plant is based on a dry anaerobic digestion process, which takes place in horizontal, container-shaped bioreactors. The produced biogas will be upgraded to natural gas quality, injected to the natural gas grid, and utilized as renewable vehicle fuel as well as for heating purposes. The biogas plant will be located in Virolahti, Southern Finland, and the deployment of the plant will take place by the end of 2015.

BioGTS Ltd. is a Finnish biogas plant manufacturer. The domestic origin of the factory-made biogas plant is over 90 %, and the BioGTS® Biogas plant has been awarded with the Finnish Key Flag Symbol.

At first Haminan Energia’s biogas plant comprises three parallel biogas reactors. The biogas plant is easy to scale up later on by adding a number of parallel reactors.
