Andritz to supply biomass boiler island to CHP project in Denmark

By Andritz | June 29, 2016

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 (CHP) plant. 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 tons per hour of steam to power an existing turbine.

This project will be Andritz’s first biomass boiler supplied to a customer in Denmark, and it is another example of sustainable biomass replacing fossil fuels in an efficient and environmentally friendly concept.
