The contract has a value of close to 500 million Danish Krona (DKK). The new plant will convert wood chips and biomass residues into electricity and district heating with an annual capacity of around 280MW. It is scheduled to begin operations in early 2017.

“For a long period, investments in new biomass-fired plants have been restrained - both in Denmark and internationally - due to the global financial crisis and uncertainty about the prices of the different types of fuels used for power generation” said John Veje Olesen, Managing Director, Babcock & Wilcox Vølund. Therefore, we are of course delighted that DONG Energy with this contract has focused on the many benefits of climate-friendly energy production based on biomass.”

Thomas Dalsgaard, Executive Vice President, DONG Energy added that the contract is the largest single transaction in connection with the conversion of the power station into a biomass-fired plant.

The plant will be capable of combusting up to 154 tons of biomass per hour. Babcock & Wilcox Vølund will design the plant for 24 hours of continuous operation throughout the year - only interrupted by short periods of maintenance. The total running time will thus be at least 8,000 hours per year for each of the two boilers.
