Energy-from-waste boiler plant

Aker Kvaerner’s Pulp and Paper business has received an order from Boras Energi, Sweden, for an energy-from-waste boiler plant. Aker Kvaerner’s contract represents more than EUR 35 million of Boras Energi’s total investment of approximately EUR 45 million. Aker Kvaerner’s Power Division is to supply two advanced combustion zone (ACZ) power boilers featuring bubbling fluidised bed technology. Boiler capacity is 20mw each and the delivery includes the boilers and auxiliary systems such as fuel storage and fuel feeding systems, ash handling equipment and a flue gas cleaning system. The boilers, fired with household and industrial waste, recycled wood and bio-fuels, will produce superheated steam for generating electricity and district heat. The ash handling system of the boiler plant is designed to meet future EU requirements of various types of ash. The entire plant is designed to handle several types of waste streams. The project will be executed by Aker Kvaerner’s Power Division which will be responsible for design, engineering, manufacturing, erection, commissioning and training. Start-up is expected for the early part of 2005.
