Babcock & Wilcox Enterprises Danish subsidiary has secured a contract from Shenzhen Energy Environmental Engineering to design a waste-to-energy boiler in China.
As per terms of the $40m contract, B&W Vølund will supply its DynaGrate combustion grate system, where waste will be converted into energy.
It will also provide hydraulics, burners, and other boiler components, as well as construction advisors.
In addition, the contract also marks the first time B&W Vølund’s advanced DynaGrate technology will be deployed in China.
Upon completion, the plant will provide a waste management solution for the region while generating clean, renewable energy. With a capacity of 5,600t of municipal waste a day, the plant will be the largest waste-to-energy facility in the world.
B&W Renewable's senior vice-president Paul Scavuzzo said: “The demand for reliable and clean renewable energy is growing in China and throughout much of Asia.
“We thank Shenzhen Energy for choosing B&W Vølund to provide state-of-the-art technology for this plant.”
The new plant will feature a circular shape, rooftop solar panels, a visitor education centre and an observation platform into its architectural design.
Commercial operations are expected to begin in mid-2019.
