Babcock & Wilcox Enterprises announced that its Denmark subsidiary, Babcock & Wilcox Vølund, was awarded a $35 million contract to design, supply and construct a waste-to-energy boiler for Bodens Energi AB.
The boiler, which can handle up to 13 tons of municipal solid waste per hour, will be delivered to a combined heat and power plant in Boden, Sweden. The expansion of the existing facility is scheduled for completion in April 2019.
B&W’s boiler uses a DynaGrate combustion grate system and has a capacity of 35 megawatts.
“Waste-to-energy continues to be a proven, clean and reliable technology to address the energy and waste disposal needs of our customers in Europe, and we’re pleased to supply some of the most advanced technologies in the industry,” said Jimmy Morgan, senior vice president of B&W’s renewable business segment.
