B&W Vølund signs $80m contract for Danish power plant
Dong Energy Thermal Power is developing a renewable energy plant near Fredercia in Denmark that will supply district heating and power to local residents.
On 23 July, the Babcock and Wilcox Company (B&W) announced that B&W Vølund, a subsidiary of B&W Power Generation Group, was awarded a contract exceeding $80 million (€60 million) to build a 280MW-thermal (MWth) biomass boiler system for the Skærbækværket power plant.
The plant will consist of two 140MW biomass-fired boilers used to supply district heating and power to residents in the region. The boilers will be fuelled primarily by woodchips, as well as other biomass residue.
B&W Vølund's scope consists of the design, manufacture, supply, construction and commissioning of the plant's boiler system.
B&W Vølund will soon begin engineering and design work for the Skærbækværket project. The plant is scheduled for completion in April 2017.
In the last decade, B&W Vølund has been contracted to build approximately 40 waste-to-energy plants and more than a dozen biomass energy plants utilising a variety of renewable and waste fuels in Asia and Europe.
