The construction of agricultural biogas plant in Prilozany, in the South of the Czech Republic, was carried out in four months. Biomass in the Czech Republic the most important source for renewable energy should be up to the year 2015. The demand of Czech investors and operators for biogas plants is correspondingly high. Equipment from manufacturers who have experience abroad and offer a nationwide service. WELTEC BIOGAS POWER GmbH, Vechta belongs in the tenth year of existence of the experienced German bio-gas plants manufacturers and has already built the fifth facility in the Czech Republic during the summer. The construction of agricultural biogas plant in Prilozany, in the South of the Czech Republic, was carried out in four months.
After pouring the concrete of sole in March vertical feeder could begin in the same month with the construction of 2500 cubic metres-large stainless steel fermenters, the cogeneration (CHP) and the 35 cubic meters large. The construction of the biogas equipment was completed in May. Beginning of June already poured the first gas through the pipes. The final approval of the test operation was carried out in June. The WELTEC biogas plant contains a bio gas emergency flare and does not Hygienisierungs – and separation unit. In the CHP, a gas engine unit with 366 kilowatt performance ensures the electricity which is fed into the network. The energy efficiency of the plant is high, because the heat generated in the operation sheds and stables is used. The plant is fed with substrates and manure of the operator, as well as surrounding farms: pig manure, silage, corn silage, GPS and crop waste.
For the construction of biogas plants in the Czech Republic, the EU and the Czech Government use targeted incentives. A key reason: The carbon dioxide emissions per capita is high in a worldwide country comparison. From an EU environmental fund and an EU fund for the development of rural areas, Czech farmers will receive financial support for the construction of biogas plants. The feed-in Act ensures decentralised green electricity in the Czech Republic since 2005 for an increase in the production of energy from renewable Sources. In 2010, around 10 percent of energy from alternative sources were produced; in 2008, the ratio was four per cent.
