Danish companies Orsted, Novo Nordisk, Novozymes, Kalundborg Forsyning have started work to convert the Asnæs power station to bio to help Denmark phase out coal-fired generation by 2023.

The biomass-fired plant will be built as a separate unit in new buildings at Asnæs and will be connected to the existing district heating and process steam networks and the electricity grid.

The conversion also includes a new conveyor system and wood chip storage site.

The power station is expected to be ready by the end of 2019.

Orsted executive vice president and chief executive of bioenergy and thermal power Thomas Dalsgaard said: “With the conversion of Asnæs Power Station, we and our customers are taking an important step towards becoming coal-free.”
