(GLOBE NEWSWIRE) - Valmet will supply a biomass-fired boiler and a flue gas treatment plant to BS Energy's combined heat and power (CHP) plant in Braunschweig, Germany. The order was included in Valmet's orders received of the second quarter 2019. The total value of the order is around EUR 50 million.
The boiler with its auxiliary equipment will be part of BS Energy’s energy production strategy 2030. The primary target of the investment is to replace the coal-fired boiler, which will be removed from production in 2022. In addition, the new biomass-fired CHP plant will support BS Energy's objective of environmentally friendly and carbon-neutral production, as it will serve as a base-load unit to meet the district heating and electric power needs of the Braunschweig municipality.
"Valmet convinced us with their offer: we will get a particularly efficient and flexible boiler and with it, the benefits of expertise from world-wide reference projects," says Paul Anfang, Deputy Chairman of the Board of BS Energy.
