GoBiGas builds in two phases
The gasification plant is to be built in two phases. The first phase is underway and is planned for completion in 2013. The second phase is planned for completion in 2016 and the decision regarding its implementation will be made after the evaluation of phase 1.
The plant will be built in Rya Harbour adjacent to the Rya heating plant. The location was chosen for its proximity to Göteborg’s electricity, gas and district heating network and allows for a long-term and flexible method of receiving fuel for transport by way of both vessel and rail.
Phase 1 is an experimental plant that is partially financed by the Energy Agency. The project shall provide a basis for the implementation of phase 2 as well as provide us with useful knowledge and experience prior to the implementation of phase 2. The planned production of phase 1 is 20 MW.
Phase 2 will be a built as a commercial plant from its opening, with a planned gas production of 80 - 100 MW.
