Babcock & Wilcox Enterprises’ Denmark-based unit, Babcock & Wilcox Vølund A/S, won a contract for more than $90 million to design, manufacture and build a waste-to-energy power plant near Haresfield, Gloucestershire, United Kingdom.

B&W Vølund won the contract from a joint venture of Urbaser and Balfour Beatty.

The facility will treat municipal and commercial and industrial waste to supply 14.5 MW of electricity, enough to power the equivalent of 25,000 homes. B&W Vølund’s scope includes the plant’s combustion system and air-cooled DynaGrate, fuel handling equipment, steam boiler island, steam turbine-generator, water treatment system, piping, valves and air systems, burners and other power plant equipment.

“B&W has installed more than 500 waste-to-energy and biomass units around the world,” said B&W Global Power Division Sr. Vice President Paul Scavuzzo. “We’re grateful that our customer recognized our experience and reputation for quality when they selected us for this important clean energy project.”

Engineering work for the project is underway. The plant is scheduled to come online in 2019.
