B&W to design boiler for waste-to-energy power plant in China

Babcock & Wilcox Enterprises’ Denmark-based unit, Babcock & Wilcox Vàƒ¸lund A/S, won a contract for nearly $40 million to design a waste-to-energy boiler for Shenzhen Energy Environmental Engineering Co. Ltd. in Shenzhen, Guangdong Province, China.

When complete, the plant will provide a 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 Vàƒ¸lund will supply equipment, including a DynaGrate combustion grate system, hydraulics, burners and other boiler components for the 168 MW power plant. B&W Vàƒ¸lund 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 Vàƒ¸lund to provide state-of-the art technology for this plant.”

The circular Shenzhen plant will be built with sustainability in mind and will incorporate rooftop solar panels, a visitor education center and an observation platform into its architectural design. It also represents the first time B&W Vàƒ¸lund has deployed its advanced DynaGrate technology in China.

The plant is scheduled to begin commercial operation in mid-2019.
