Denmark-based Babcock & Wilcox Volund A/S has won a contract worth nearly USD 40 million (EUR 37.5m) to design a waste-to-energy boiler for a 168-MW combined heat and power plant in Shenzhen, China’s Guangdong Province.
B&W Volund’s parent, US energy technology company Babcock & Wilcox Enterprises Inc (NYSE:BW), announced the order on Tuesday, saying that it concerns the largest waste-to-energy facility in the world.
Shenzhen Energy Environmental Engineering Co Ltd has contracted B&W Volund to supply equipment, including a DynaGrate combustion grate system, hydraulics, burners and other boiler components. In addition, the Danish firm will provide construction advisors for the project.
The Shenzhen facility will be fueled by up to 5,600 tonnes of municipal waste a day. It will be powered by a rooftop solar array. Completion is scheduled for mid-2019.
