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.
