Valmet has announced it will deliver a major boiler rebuild to E.ON’s Steven’s Croft biomass power station in Lockerbie, Scotland.
The order is included in Valmet’s orders received during the first quarter of this year, with the scheduled delivery to take place during Q2.
Steven’s Croft’s bubbling fluidised bed (BFB) boiler, originally delivered by Valmet, was initiated in 2008. With good day-to-day maintenance and regular refurbishments, the boiler’s performance has been kept at an outstanding level, according to Valmet.
Its reliable operation for the future will be secured by Valmet's delivery, which  will include renewing several key components of the power station’s bubbling fluidised bed (BFB) boiler such as the primary superheater, economisers, primary air preheater and screen tubes. Special corrosion resistant material will be used where applicable to prolong the lifetime of the parts."For 16 years, E.ON Steven’s Croft has been providing a low-carbon power and heat solution to the local area, and central to this is the Valmet BFB boiler," said Scott Robinson, site manager at Steven Croft's power station. "The work carried out during the 2024 rebuild project emphatically positions the station to continue to safely deliver its operational objectives, in the most efficient and commercially-optimised way possible; whilst at all times, maintaining compliance with strict emission limit values.
"Valmet were selected to carry out this major work not only because of their OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) status, but because of 16 years of proven excellence in maintaining and optimising our boiler.
"Our close relationship with Valmet has also facilitated a collaborative approach to developing a successful boiler maintenance strategy, underpinned by a long-term service agreement.
"I look forward to another successful project delivery from the Valmet team."
"We are happy to continue our good, long-standing cooperation with E.ON and Steven’s Croft power station with this delivery," said Nigel Earp, service manager, EMEA Area at Valmet. "We have developed a relationship that enables data sharing and open discussion, leading to numerous successful joint projects over the years – this one inevitably being the next in line."
