Babcock to kit out Danish bio
$40m deal for municipal waste-to-energy plant north of Copenhagen
Charlotte-based Babcock & Wilcox Company has won a $40m contract to kit out a municipal waste-to-energy plant north of Copenhagen, Denmark.
The company’s Danish subsidiary B&W Vølund will engineer and supply steam generating equipment, ash handling systems and combustion control systems for client I/S Nordforbrænding.
The waste-firing equipment for the scheme, which is slated to go live in spring 2016, will include a DynaGrate combustion grate for the steam generator. The new line will burn 80,000 tons of waste per year.
Babcock & Wilcox Power Generation Group president J Randall Data said: “We’re eager to begin work on this project and demonstrate our industry-leading waste-to-energy technology and expertise.”
