A 15MWel biomass CHP is being constructed on the grounds of the sawmill of Sao Hill Industries Ltd. in the Iringa region in Tanzania. The fuel for this CHP will be wood waste from the own production as well as waste from small sawmills in the region. The heat produced will be used for the drying of wood products, the electricity will cover the own demand and the surplus (approx. 10MW) will be fed into the Tanzanian electricity grid.

This will replace electricity from fossil based power plants in the grid, thus reducing up to 50,000 tons of CO2 emissions annually.
