|B&W Subsidiary Awarded $170 Million Boiler and Environmental Contract for Denmark Waste-to-Energy Plant|
B&W Vølund’s scope includes the design and supply of the plant’s firing equipment, boiler, DynaGrate®, combustion- and energy-control system, slag and ash-handling equipment and environmental equipment, including an electrostatic precipitator (ESP) for the control of particulate emissions and a selective catalytic reduction system (SCR) for the control of nitrogen oxides (NOx).
“This is an exciting project that will be among the largest and most
efficient plants of its type in Europe,” said J. Randall Data,
The state-of-the-art plant will be designed with two fuel lines, and a total combustion capacity of 70 tons of municipal solid waste per hour. The plant’s owners estimate it will reduce carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions by approximately 107,000 tons annually, compared to a traditional coal-fired plant.
The facility is planned to be completed in spring 2016 with the first line to be commissioned in late 2016.
