Biomass projects

Biomass projects

The Romanian rustic areas have a high potential of resources from waste wood and agriculture crop residues that are insufficiently valued, generating additional costs for the exploitation units, as their storage is a real problem on the background of observing the current pollution norms.

In order to develop this branch of renewable energy production it is necessary to direct the efforts in implementing sustainable projects for optimizing the exploitation of biomass resources by applying the long-term development principles.

FF Wind Energy International develops two biomass thermoelectric plants, each with an individual capacity of 6 MW, by waste wood processing.

The two biomass plants are located in Petrova Commune, Maramures County. Their settlement covers a land surface of 7,5 hectares, owned by FF Wind Energy International and represents a location surrounded by generous forests that are the object of activity of intense wood exploitation.

The plants will be equipped with cutting edge Italian technology, and the suppliers take full responsibility on their transportation, assembly and commissioning in proper conditions. The connection point is on the land held by the company, and the connection is made into an electric line of 20kV.

The location of the plants is favourable to an efficient use of the wood biomass potential available in the area, the more so as in Maramures zone there are no electric power producers who use biomass, certified by A.N.R.E in accordance with the legal provisions applicable.

The projects developed are in conformity with the provisions of the Directive 2001/77/CE on exploiting the renewable energy sources and the program targets: The project on the promotion of clean technologies and energy production from renewable sources, granted from the environment Fund and approved by Decision no..15/28.08.2007 of the Endorsement Committee of the Environment Fund Administration (A.F.M.), according to the provisions of Law 105/2006 for approving the Emergency Ordinance no.196/2005 regarding the Environment Fund.

Therefore two non-refundable financing agreements have been signed already within the state aid plan promoted by program mentioned above, according to provisions of the Environment Minister Order no.714/06.05.2010 for approving the Financing Guide on the Program regarding the development of renewable energy production. This way, the two non-refundable financing agreements support the profitability of the projects.

The plants designed will provide the energetic exploitation of the waste wood generated by the business companies around, having as main activity the processing of wood, companies that in the absence of these projects would have manifested the risk of creating negative impacts by accidental pollution of soil and water.
