Saxlund to deliver biomass handling system to Babcock & Wilcox Vølund
Babcock & Wilcox Vølund, a Danish thermal energy producer, has ordered a state-of-the-art biomass handling system from Saxlund, part of the Swedish Opcon Group.
The system will be delivered to Babcock & Wilcox Vølund’s (BWV) Templeborough Biomass Power Plant in Sheffield, UK.

The entire fuel feeding system, including wood storage and conveyor systems, will be designed for multi-fuel waste wood, designed for efficiency, minimum maintenance, and high availability as well as low emission of dust and noise.
Total order value is over €4 million with commissioning and take-over in 2017.
