In line with its business development strategy, INOVA decided to create and operate a biomass power generation plant at the Nicopolis business park in Brignoles, Southeastern France.

The aim of the biomass boiler is to produce superheated steam to convert into electricity (21.5 MW electrical power – alternator output).

The application included the following content:

  • Administrative information
