An industry-historical circle was completed this weekend with BWSC’s take-over of the Danish boiler manufacturer, Burmeister & Wain Energy (BWE). Two of Denmark’s oldest companies are hereby re-united under one roof.
Both companies are historically rooted in the old Danish shipyard, Burmeister & Wain, and have for the past 150 years individually specialised in engineering and delivery of technologically advanced thermal power plants.
"During the past years, we have collaborated closely with BWE, and we know the company and many of its employees very well. With this takeover, we ensure our position as a leading energy company on the global market for small and medium-sized biomass power plants", says Anders Heine Jensen, CEO at BWSC.
The merging of the two companies at BWSC’s head office north of Copenhagen, cements and secures the future of the strategic alliance between BWSC and BWE; an alliance, which over the past years has dominated especially the UK market for technologically advanced biomass power plants.
"BWE’s advanced boiler technology has contributed to BWSC’s success in the biomass market. The company has highly skilled employees and a solid customer base, which fit perfectly into our business. We look forward to strengthening and continuing our excellent joint venture and to building environmentally friendly power plants for the next many years to come", says Anders Heine Jensen.
