A new boiler for a combined heat and power plant in Västerås,
Sweden, is being touted as the world's largest recovered fuel-fired boiler by
the supplier, Helsinki-based Metso Corp.
With a fuel input of 167 MW, the boiler will utilize
circulating fluidized bed technology and serve as a base unit to meet the district
heating power needs of Västerås and Hallstahammar municipalities. Metso’s
delivery will account for about 30 percent of the plant's nearly $397 million
The boiler's principal will be recovered fuel prepared from
municipal waste, but it has the potential to burn biofuel. Compared with
current boilers, the new system will give the plant a more flexible fuel mix,
Commissioning is scheduled for mid-2014.
