The Saxlund Group has received a second order from Denmarkbased Babcock & Wilcox Vølund for its biomass fuel handling system at the Templeborough biomass power plant in Sheffield.
Saxlund has been contracted to design and install the e4m (£2.9m) fuel handling solution which will provide fuel reception, storage and conveyor systems to handle 260,000 tonnes a year of locally sourced waste wood, to feed the combustion processes.
Due for completion in 2017, the plant is expected to produce 41MW of electricity, enough to supply 78,000 homes.
The entire fuel feeding system, including wood storage and conveyor systems, will be designed for multi-fuel waste wood, designed for efficiency, minimum maintenance and high availability as well as low emission of dust and noise.
Matt Drew, European sales director and UK managing director of Saxlund International, said: “The Templeborough biomass plant has a multi-million pound long-term deal with Stobart Biomass Products to source, process and supply feedstock for the plant. Schemes like these have the potential to contribute to UK renewable energy and waste recycling targets.”
