Valmet to deliver boiler rebuild to E.ON's power station in Scotland

Valmet will deliver a major boiler rebuild to E.ON's Steven's Croft biomass power station in Lockerbie, Scotland in the United Kingdom to secure trouble-free operation of the boiler for years to come.

The value of the order will not be disclosed. The scheduled delivery period will be during the Q2 2024.

Steven's Croft's bubbling fluidized bed (BFB) boiler, originally delivered by Valmet, was started up in 2008. With good day-to-day maintenance and regular refurbishments, the boiler's performance has been kept at an outstanding level. Now, the boiler's primary superheater, economizers, primary air preheater and screen tubes will be renewed, securing its reliable operation for the future.

Valmet's delivery will include renewing several key components of the power station's bubbling fluidized bed (BFB) boiler such as the primary superheater, economizers, primary air preheater and screen tubes. Special corrosion resistant material will be used where applicable to prolong the lifetime of the parts.

E.ON's Steven's Croft power station in Lockerbie, Scotland is the UK's largest wood fired biomass station. With an output of 44MW, the station supplies the electrical needs of 70,000 Scottish homes.
