Babcock & Wilcox Vølund (B&W Vølund), a subsidiary of Babcock
& Wilcox Power Generation Group (B&W PGG), has secured a
contract worth over $80m to construct a 280MW thermal biomass boiler
system in Denmark.
The boiler system will be built for the Skærbækværket power plant, located near Fredericia.
Energy Thermal Power owns the plant, which will feature two 140MW
biomass-fired boilers dedicated for supplying district heating and power

The boilers will be fueled primarily by wood chips and other biomass residue.
Under the deal, B&W Vølund will design, manufacture, supply, construct and commission the plant’s boiler system.
The company will shortly start engineering and design work for the project, which is expected to be completed in April 2017.
PGG president and chief operating officer J. Randall Data said: “This
project reflects B&W’s ongoing strategic effort to deploy its clean
energy, biomass and waste-to-energy technologies globally.
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.”
past ten years, B&W Vølund has secured contracts to construct about
40 waste-to-energy plants and over 12 biomass energy plants in Asia and
