INNIO Supports Ukraine’s Plan to Increase Renewable Energy with One of the Most Innovative Biogas Plants

Sponsored by Businesswire

INNIO* announced today that through KTS Engineering, INNIO’s authorized
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. The 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 20301, 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

“Our major focus is high-end service and maintenance, enabling biogas
operators to increase the efficiency of our customers’ investments,”
said 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 farms1..”

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 6 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

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 625 kilowatts. It is also home to one of the world’s biggest
biogas plant 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 26.1
MW. Eleven of the engines are commissioned, with seven units in
production for delivery in the 2nd and 3rd
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 centers and
agriculture—provide reliable, economical and sustainable power to their
customers,” said 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
containerized 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 3 GW 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 a key enabler in
helping customers transition to renewable energy, providing tailor-made
solutions that operate as an integral part in the energy transition.
