Energy and environmental technology company Saxlund has won a £2.7m order from Babcock & Wilcox Vølund for the design and supply of two complete, automated fuel management systems for bioenergy projects on Teesside.
Both will be able to provide up to 125MW.
The fuel management system, including storage and feed systems, will be designed for efficiency, minimum maintenance and high availability, while environmental impact in the form of dust and noise is limited. The system also offers flexibility in the use of waste wood of different types and quality.
Matt Drew, European sales director and UK managing director Saxlund International, said: “Schemes like these have the potential to tick all the boxes: contributing to UK renewable energy targets and a balanced energy economy, as well as waste recycling targets.”
