International technology Group Andritz has received an order from the regional Danish municipality Helsingør Kraftvarmeværk A/S to deliver a biomass boiler island for its combined heat and power plant, as the company said in the press release received by Lesprom Network.
With the new boiler, natural gas is replaced by biomass in energy production. The plant will supply heat and power to the Helsingør community in the northern part of Sjælland island, Denmark. Start-up of the boiler is scheduled for the end of 2018.
The scope of supply includes the boiler island (from fuel silos to boiler outlet), based on Andritz’ well-proven bubbling fluidized bed design, which combines high efficiency with excellent environmental performance. The boiler will burn wood-based biomass (forest residue, bark, sawdust, and wood chips) and generate 75 t/h of steam to power an existing turbine.
