AgroEnergy to supply sustainable heat to cluster of four Dutch growers

In the horticultural area Siberië in Maasbree, the Netherlands, AgroEnergy will supply heat to a cluster of four growers. The heat will be supplied from a biomass plant to the surrounding greenhouses via a local heating network that still needs to be constructed.

Construction of installation and heating network
It's expected that the construction of the biomass plant will start after summer. The construction of the installation and the heating network will take about 9 months. The supply of heat from the biomass boiler is planned for mid-2019. An area-wide heating network doesn't exist, so this is seen as a first good step. In the future, new companies and heat sources can be connected to the grid.

"We are proud that four growers in this region are switching to sustainable heat. That is a nice step towards sustainable and future-proof greenhouse horticulture," says Jimmy Wolleswinkel, Account Manager at AgroEnergy.

First heat cluster in the region
With this initiative for a biomass installation, the first heat cluster in this region will be realized. The owners of the installation are TBM Europe B.V. and Nursery Gubbels. For TPM, this will be the third in a row that they will realize and exploit within a year. It is also the third installation where they work together with Eneco and AgroEnergy. This concept in collaboration with TPM also offers possibilities for other greenhouse horticulture areas.
