Babcock & Wilcox will design a waste-to-energy boiler for Shenzhen Energy Environmental Engineering Co. Ltd. in Shenzhen, Guangdong Province, China.

As part of a nearly $40 million contract, the boiler will be used at what the company claims will be the largest waste-to-energy facility in the world. Fueled by up to 5,600 tons of municipal waste a day, the plant will provide a waste-management solution for the region while generating clean, renewable energy.

B&W Vølund will supply a combustion grate system, hydraulics, burners and other boiler components for the 168 MW combined heat and power facility, which is expected to begin operation in mid-2019.
