B&W Vølund Inks Construction Contract for Biomass Power Plant in Denmark

The Babcock & Wilcox Company (B&W) announced today that Babcock & Wilcox Vølund A/S (B&W Vølund), a subsidiary of Babcock & Wilcox Power Generation Group, Inc. (B&W PGG), has been awarded a contract for more than $80 million to build a 280 megawatt-thermal (MWth) biomass boiler system for the Skærbækværket power plant near Fredericia, Denmark.

The plant, owned by DONG Energy Thermal Power A/S, will consist of two 140 MW biomass-fired boilers used to supply district heating and power to residents in the region. The boilers will be fueled primarily by wood chips, as well as other biomass residue.

B&W Vølund’s scope consists of the design, manufacture, supply, construction and commissioning of the plant’s boiler system. The contract was booked in the second quarter of 2014.

“This project reflects B&W’s ongoing strategic effort to deploy its clean energy, biomass and waste-to-energy technologies globally,” said B&W PGG President and Chief Operating Officer J. Randall Data. “B&W Vølund is a leader in the clean energy technology sphere and its steam generators offer economical and efficient solutions for our customers’ needs to comply with challenging emissions regulations.

“We appreciate this opportunity to serve our customer, DONG Energy,” Data said.

In the last decade, B&W Vølund has contracted to build approximately 40 waste-to-energy plants and more than a dozen biomass energy plants utilizing a wide variety of renewable and waste fuels in Asia and Europe.
