A.Hak Renewable Energy B.V

Gazprom Teploenergo and A. Hak Renewable Energy B. V. are planning to set up a joint Russian–Dutch investment project to build a 3.5-billion-rouble wood processing plant in the Arkhangelsk Region, the region’s press service has announced.  

The project involves the construction of three plants in the Plesetsk Region: a wood processing complex for the production of cut timber in Severoonezhsk, and two factories in Plesetsk – one for the production of laminated veneer and another that will produce bio-coal wood pellets. “The new plants will create 200 jobs, solve the problem of what to do with wood waste and ensure reliable and uninterrupted supply of raw materials to five Gazprom Teploenergo boiler stations that run on biofuels. The total investment in the project is 3.5 billion roubles ($52 million), according to the press service. 

The regional government noted that the Dutch company’s involvement in the project will ensure that innovative technologies for treating wood waste products will be used. A big part of this will be the production of bio-coal wood pellets, which are similar to conventional coal in terms of their thermal characteristics, meaning that they can be used to power coal boilers without having to make significant alterations to the equipment.    

“We intend to develop the production of so-called “plack” pellets; construction work on a plant for this purpose will start this winter and should be completed in 2016,” Gazprom Teploenergo General Director Leonid Bogorad explained.   

In turn, Acting Governor of the Arkhangelsk Region Igor Orlov noted that Gazprom Teploenergo was proposing a new kind of technology in wood processing. “Naturally, we welcome the initiative and are prepared to support it,” he said.   

The regional authorities are implementing a strategy to redress the oil and coal fuel imbalance in the region towards the use of gas and biofuels. By 2025, Pomorye will no longer be using imported fuels. From 2012 to 2014, a total of 4.7 billion roubles ($70.5 million) was invested in the modernization of the boiler industry, with 25 heat generating units now working on biofuels and a further seven new ones built.  

Gazprom Teploenergo operates 1105 heat generating units in 22 regions.
