Charlotte, March 31, 2011 – The Babcock and Wilcox Co.’s Denmark-based unit, Babcock and Wilcox VÃ¸lund A/S, won a contract worth more than $30 million to design and supply a boiler, combustion system, emissions control components and other equipment for the expansion of a waste-to-energy, combined heat and power plant in Lidkoping, Sweden.
The waste-to-energy plant, owned by Lidkoping Varmeverk AB, produces electricity, hot water and district heating.
“Municipalities in many European Union nations are looking for ways to reduce their environmental footprint, which includes disposing waste in an environmentally sound and efficient manner,” said B&W President and CEO Brandon C. Bethards. “B&W VÃ¸lund’s industry-leading waste-to-energy combustion and emissions control technologies are an ideal fit to meet the growing demand for turnkey waste-to-energy plants.”
Engineering work is currently underway. The project is scheduled for completion in early 2013.
