Site Location

The plant owner Affald Varme Aarhus has decided to built a biomass fired renewable energy plant primary for the production of heat for the municipal District Heat system.

The primary contractors of the boiler island and flue gas treatment is BWE situated in Denmark, just north of Copenhagen.

Overall project

The energy plant Lisbjerg is a new constructed renewable energy unit to be build in Denmark. The plant is 100% biomass fired (oil is used for start-up), mostly straw, and produces approx. 40 MW electricity. The combustion technology is based on a water cooled vibration grate. See more on

Straw is delivered as bales and the plant is able to receive Hesston bales, New Holland bales and Claas bales. Wood chips is used as auxiliary fuel.

The plant shall be designed for continuous operation at base load apart from one annual shutdown for repair, statutory inspection and repair

A centrally and fully equipped first aid facility will be located on the site.

Local/Site Conditions

The site is located just North-West of the town of Aarhus close to the motorway E45.
