Municipal energy company for Lund, Sweden, commissions Foster Wheeler, Rejlers to build, deliver 35 MWe biomass-fired CFB boiler island at Örtofta plant; generator to burn 100% biofuel, up to 50% demolition wood
April 16, 2012
Rejlers Oy has signed a contract with Foster Wheeler Energia Oy for the engineering of automation, electrification and instrumentation of a 35 MWe biomass-fired CFB boiler island. This new CFB (Circulating Fluidized Bed) boiler island will be placed in Örtofta, in the vicinity of Lund, Sweden.
Rejlers started the engineering work in March 2012, the project employing about 10 consultants. The steam generator is designed to burn 100 % bio fuel with up to 50 % demolition wood. The new power plant will be replacing Lunds Energi's existing one, where old equipment operates on fossil fuels.
The power plant will be put into operation in the spring of 2014. Foster Wheeler delivers the boiler island to Eslöv Lund Kraftvärmeverk AB, a local municipally owned energy company.
