Saxlund and Axis announce combustion projects
Bulk materials handling company Saxlund International and Axis Industries have announced two new biomass combustion projects to deliver combined heat and power (CHP) for customers in Estonia and Lithuania valued at €78 million.
Under the agreement, Axis Industries will be responsible for full turnkey project delivery, covering design, installation and commissioning, and incorporating licenced technology from Saxlund including furnaces, turbines and materials handling, together with flue gas condensation and cleaning.
The first project for Danpower Baltic, a joint venture between Danpower and Geco Investicijos, will provide a 5MW electric CHP, burning woodchips to produce electricity and heat for the municipality of Kaunas in Lithuania.
At Tallinn in Estonia, a larger project for energy company Utilitas will deliver a 21.4MW CHP facility which will burn woodchips mixed with 30% peat. The new plant will deliver some 20% of all heat demand to Tallinn municipality, as well as power to the grid, and incorporates three Saxlund 25MW thermal furnaces. Both projects are due to be commissioned in 2016.
