A joint venture including Babcock & Wilcox’s Denmark-based subsidiary, Babcock & Wilcox Vølund A/S, was awarded a contract to design and build the Teesside Renewable Energy Plant near Middlesbrough, England. B&W Vølund was also awarded a separate, 15-year contract to provide operations and maintenance services for the plant. The 40-MW waste-wood-fired biomass power plant will be built for Port Clarence Energy Ltd.
The project scope includes a boiler and environmental controls, including a dry flue-gas desulfurization system, fabric filter baghouse, continuous emissions monitoring equipment and a DynaGrate fuel combustion system. The plant, which will provide sustainable energy for the local community, is designed to burn 34 tons of waste wood per hour. Construction is expected to be complete in the first quarter of 2018.
