Oct 2018 – BPO – the JV between AcrEnergy and BayWa r.e. – the operators behind Biogas Meden have achieved consistent uptime at 100% efficiency, for eleven consecutive months.
The team has now twice managed to produce gas above its nominal value. It is not causing undue constrains on the system. The over capacity instead increases the average production rate per annum to read almost exactly 100% uptime – once the planned downtime for maintenance works has been accounted for. Since inception when the plant was ramped up to 80% within two months the plant had certainly not been spared from “infancy hick-ups” so this is welcome news! Congratulations to Matthew and his team on site and the back-up teams in Regensburg and London!
