The Babcock & Wilcox Company (B&W) announced today that its Denmark-based subsidiary, Babcock & Wilcox Vølund A/S, has been awarded contracts totaling more than $220 million to design, manufacture, and operate a biomass power plant in Rotherham, South Yorkshire, England.
B&W Vølund’s consortium partner, Interserve Strategic Projects, will construct the plant for the developer, Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners.
The Rotherham Biomass Plant will feature a B&W Vølund-designed multi-fuel boiler with a DynaGrate® fuel combustion system, a dry flue gas desulfurization system (dry FGD) and will burn waste wood to generate approximately 40 MW of electricity.
The contracts also call for B&W Vølund to provide operations and maintenance services for an initial term of 15 years after the plant is commissioned.
“We greatly appreciate the confidence Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners has shown in B&W and this consortium and look forward to executing this project,” said Paul Scavuzzo, B&W Senior Vice President and General Manager, Global Power Division. “The market for biomass power and waste-to-energy technologies in Europe continues to be strong, and B&W is well-positioned to meet the demand for reliable, clean energy solutions. This is B&W’s fourth major renewable energy project announced in the European market in the last seven months.”
Completion of the plant is scheduled for the third quarter of 2017.
