Valmet to supply a biomass boiler and a flue gas treatment plant to BS Energy in Germany
September 3, 2019
Valmet will supply a biomass-fired boiler and a flue gas treatment plant to BS Energy's combined heat and power (CHP) plant in Braunschweig, Germany. The total value of the order is around Euro 50 million.
The boiler with its auxiliary equipment will be part of BS Energy's energy production strategy 2030. The primary target of the investment is to replace the coal-fired boiler, which will be removed from production in 2022.
The biomass-fired CHP plant will produce approximately 20 megawatts of electricity and 60 megawatts thermal of district heat. The takeover of the biomass-fired CHP plant is scheduled for early 2022.
The CYMIC circulating fluidized bed boiler included in Valmet's delivery will use recycled wood as its primary fuels. The boiler generates 27 kg/s of high-pressure steam at a pressure of 75 bar and a temperature of 525°C. Its steam-generating capacity is 78 MWth.
