Leading global bioenergy company Valmet will supply a biomass-fired boiler and a flue gas treatment plant to BS Energy’s combined heat and power (CHP) plant in Braunschweig, Germany.
The new boiler will form part of German firm BS Energy’s 2030 energy production strategy. The main aim of the investment is to replace a coal-fired boiler, which will be removed from production in 2022.
The new biomass-fired CHP plant will support BS Energy’s objective for environmentally-friendly, carbon-neutral production. Once fully operational, the biomass-fired CHP plant will produce around 20MW of electricity and 60MW thermal of district heat.
Paul Anfang, deputy chairman of the Board of BS Energy, said: “Valmet convinced us with their offer: we will get a particularly efficient and flexible boiler and with it, the benefits of expertise from worldwide reference projects."
“We are very proud to have been selected as the technology partner to this sustainable energy project and we are looking forward to work in close cooperation with BS Energy,"added Kai Janhunen, vice-president of Valmet’s energy business unit.
“Valmet’s circulating fluidised bed technology provides reliable operation for waste wood and various other challenging biomass fuels. “This plant will fulfil future environmental demands with low emission levels and high efficiency on electrical and district heating production.
