Description

The electricity exported yearly by our power plants to the national grid of Mauritius represents just under 30% of the annual electricity generated in the country. Furthermore, Omnicane produces 40% of the country’s renewable bagasse-based energy. La Baraque Our main power plant at La Baraque is one of the largest bagasse- and coal-fired cogeneration plants in the world. It uses bagasse during the sugarcane crop period, and coal outside of the crop period to generate steam and electricity for the cluster and electricity for the national grid. Of the same type as the first but smaller, our second power plant at La Baraque uses woodchips and coal and caters mainly for the distillery’s requirements in both steam and electricity. Omnicane's main cogeneration plant captures by-product heat from the combustion of bagasse and coal and transforms this heat into useful energy, namely steam and electricity. ** Ask for information **
