B&W Vølund to Build Waste-To-Energy Plant in Scotland
A consortium that includes Babcock & Wilcox Company’s (B&W) Denmark-based subsidiary, B&W Vølund has been awarded a $230 million contract to engineer, procure and construct a waste-to-energy (WTE) power plant near Dunbar, Scotland.
Viridor UK selected B&W Vølund and its construction partner, Interserve, to design and build the plant. B&W Vølund’s scope accounts for more than two-thirds of the contract value and includes two WTE boilers, advanced DynaGrate dynamic fuel combustion system, steam turbine and a dry flue gas cleaning system. The consortium also will test and commission the plant.
The Dunbar plant will be able to process up to 38 tons of municipal waste per hour and will help the Scottish government meet its target of landfilling zero biodegradable municipal waste by 2021.
The plant is scheduled to go online in the fourth quarter of 2017.
