Signature of a pellet & biomass production contract

Signature of a pellet & biomass production contract


Moret Industries group is proud to announce the signing of a contract worth approximately €50 million on June 21st for “Européenne de Biomasse”, final operator of the project.

This contract concerns the supply of a reversible plant for "white pellets" and "black pellets" thanks to the integration of a steam cracking module. The unit will be located in Pomacle-Bazancourt, in Champagne-Ardenne, and will have an annual production capacity of 120,000 tons.

The project includes a second part on the construction of a biomass cogeneration (12 MWe). This part of the project is not included in the contract signed with the group.

This integrated project is a world first. It contributes to a circular economy in which waste will feed the biomass plant whose heat will be used by the pellet production process. It is financed by Meridiam, a leader in the investment and long-term management of infrastructure projects.

This achievement is also an example of cooperation for the group:

De Smet Engineers & Contractors, signatory of the contract as general contractor, will provide overall project management, basic and detailed design, supply of all equipment and civil engineering.
Promill, will provide the granulation unit.
MK Energies will supply and install the distribution to the units as well as the electric works and control.

The startup of the various units is planned for 2020.
