Babcock & Wilcox Enterprises’ (B&W) subsidiary Babcock & Wilcox Vølund has successfully handed over its biomass-to-energy power plant in Margam, Wales, to Margam Green Energy.
Vølund will operate the plant for Margam under a 15-year operations and maintenance contract, which will burn wood waste to generate 40 MW of electricity per year.
“Vølund’s proven, world-class boiler and grate technologies will provide an environmentally sound source of power to approximately 75,000 homes and businesses,” said B&W CEO Kenneth Young. “We appreciate and thank our customer for the opportunity to deliver our technology that will provide reliable and clean energy for the region.
“This project also further reinforces our role as a global leader in providing advanced waste and biomass-fired boiler and grate technologies.”
The Margam biomass plant features Vølund’s patented DynaGrate® technology, which is described by B&W as ‘one of the most advanced combustion grates on the waste-to-energy market’.
