B&W unit will equip Denmark waste-to-energy plant

Start-up of the completed plant is anticipated in the spring of 2016

A Denmark-based unit of the Babcock & Wilcox Co. won a $40 million contract to engineer and supply steam generating equipment, ash handling systems and combustion controls for the I/S Nordforbrænding’s municipal solid waste-to-energy power plant located north of Copenhagen, Denmark.

Start-up of the completed plant is anticipated in the spring of 2016.

B&W Vølund will supply waste-firing equipment, including an advanced DynaGrate combustion grate for the plant’s steam generator. The new line will burn 80,000 tons of waste per year.

B&W Vølund’s DynaGrate handles all types of waste and features movement that allows for burnout of waste fuel.

The Babcock & Wilcox Co., headquartered in Charlotte, N.C., has locations worldwide and employs about 14,000 people, in addition to about 10,400 joint venture employees.
