China: Design Boiler for World’s Largest Waste Power Plant B&W Subsidiary Awarded $ 40 Million Contract
Babcock & Wilcox Enterprises announced that its Denmark-based subsidiary, Babcock & Wilcox Vølund, has been awarded a contract for nearly $ 40 million to design a waste-to-energy boiler for Shenzhen Energy Environmental Engineering in Shenzhen, Guangdong Province, China.
Charlotte/USA — When complete, the plant will provide a long-term waste management solution for the region while generating renewable energy. Fueled by up to 5,600 tons of municipal waste a day, the plant will be the largest waste-to-energy facility in the world. B&W Vølund will supply equipment, including a Dyna Grate combustion grate system, hydraulics, burners and other boiler components for the 168 megawatt plant. The company will also provide construction advisors for the combined heat and power project.
“The demand for reliable and clean renewable energy is growing in China and throughout much of Asia,” said Paul Scavuzzo, senior vice president, B&W Renewable. “We thank Shenzhen Energy for choosing B&W Vølund to provide state-of-the art technology for this plant.”
The circular Shenzhen plant will incorporate rooftop solar panels, a visitor education center and an observation platform into its architectural design. It also represents the first time the contractor has deployed its Dyna Grate technology in China. The plant is scheduled to begin commercial operation in mid-2019.
