Innio has announced that through KTS Engineering, Innio’s authorised channel partner, it will supply a complex solution based on four Jenbacher biogas cogeneration units for a new zero waste biogas plant of the Ukrainian agroholding I&U Group


he project will result in a total reduction of 24,000 tons of carbon

dioxide emissions annually for I&U Group, one of the largest agricultural producers in the Ukraine. With the Ukraine’s National Renewable

Energy Action Plan focusing on diversifying the energy mix and strengthening production of renewables by 2020 and through to 2030, projects based on biogas will help to achieve these goals. The project is being financed through a loan from the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development and the Clean Technology Fund. It is under a program founded to help the agricultural industry of the Ukraine develop renewable energy production from biowaste. “Our major focus is high-end service

and maintenance, enabling biogas operators to increase the efficiency of our customers’ investments,” says Pavel Savenko, shareholder, KTS Engineering. “We are proud to offer reliable,

economical and sustainable power generation solutions from Innio, near or at the point of use, to the Ukrainian agricultural industry. Biogas is not only a great source of renewable energy, but it also helps reduce greenhouse gas

emissions and provides a solution to address the disposal of waste from livestock farms.” Innio’s fuel-flexible Jenbacher J420

biogas engines - which will be installed at the Novomirgorodsky Sugar facility owned by I&U Group in the Kirovohrad region - will have a total capacity of six megawatts (MW), and the project includes equipment installation, startup and further maintenance for the new plant. The Jenbacher gas engines are able to produce power and heat from biogas from beetroot pulp, corn silage, chicken droppings and animal dung. The new combined heat and power

plant will be equipped with Innio’s myPlant Asset Performance Management solution, enabling around the clock remote monitoring and diagnostics of equipment operation that will allow I&U Group to reduce downtime and costs moving from a reactive maintenance schedule to a condition-based maintenance approach. The Ukraine is the pilot country for

Innio’s biogas projects in Russia/CIS, with the first power plant in the region based on a Jenbacher J312 gas engine commissioned in 2009. That plant has a

total capacity of 625kW. It is also home to one of the world’s biggest biogas plants, designed and erected by Zorg Biogas AG, located in Teofipol, Khmelnitsky Region, based on 18 of Innio’s Jenbacher Type 4 units - 15 J420s and three J416s, with a total electrical output of 26.1MW. Eleven of the engines are commissioned, with seven units in production for delivery in the second and third quarters of 2019. This pilot is the first biogas plant of

Ukrainian agroholding I&U Group powered by Jenbacher gas engines, and is expected to be commissioned by fourth quarter 2019. Upon commissioning, the new biogas plant will be eligible for the ‘green tariff’ - a Ukrainian government feed-in tariff scheme for electricity generated from renewable energy sources. “We help companies in a wide variety of

industries - such as utilities, oil and gas, food and beverage, commercial buildings, data centres and agriculture - provide reliable, economical and sustainable power to their customers,” says Carlos Lange, president and CEO at Innio. “With the support of KTS Engineering,

Innio has succeeded in meeting customer needs in the Ukraine by supplying 40 biogas and landfill gas containerised Jenbacher gas engines in the last three years alone.” In a move to increase renewable energy

sources, the Ukraine has taken steps to accelerate the deployment of renewables. With the national power company, Ukrenergo, forecasting renewable energy to double from 1.5 gigawatts (GW) in 2018 to 3GW by the end of this year, it is a goal that by 2025, full integration with the European Network of Transmission System Operators for Electricity will be achieved. As renewable energy sources are growing their share in the Ukrainian power system, peaking power plants with fuel flexible solutions like gas engines can help to complement a volatile energy source. Innio serves as an enabler in helping customers transition to renewable energy, providing tailor-made solutions that operate as an integral part in the energy transition.
