Turboden supplied a biomass ORC unit to produce 8 MW, but the unit has already outperformed the expected power output, producing 9 MW fuelled by wood waste from forestry operations. The electricity generated helps power the pellet plant operations.
Maine Woods Pellet Co.'s facility has a 100,000 tons capacity for both the bulk and bagged fuel markets, which makes it the largest pellet manufacturer in Maine.
According to a news release from Turboden, the cogeneration plant uses a novel combination of both exhaust and condenser heat to pre-dry the feedstock for the existing pellet plant, making it the first biomass project to fully qualify for Massachusetts Standard Class 1 regulations for Renewable Energy Credits (REC’s).
