Danish Stirling, a leading provider of energy systems based on biomass-fuelled Stirling engines, has commissioned what is claimed to be the world’s first four-engine biomass-powered Stirling plant at the wellness and spa resort Tabbs in Tabarz, Thuringia, Germany. The plant is fuelled with fresh wood chips supplied from the local region and is capable of generating around 4,000 MWh of heat and 1,000 MWh of electricity annually - reportedly the highest ever reached capacity for Stirling engine based power plants fuelled with biomass. The plant provides the municipally owned wellness centre with the heat needed to run the facility, also generating electricity which is mainly consumed onsite. It is the second multiple-engine Stirling plant installed in Germany. Two additional four-engine plants are currently being installed in the UK by a local partner, where they will generate base-load heating, cooling and electricity for two retail centres.
