New Biomass To Be Built in Belgium

Foster Wheeler Ltd. has announced that its Finnish subsidiary has been awarded a contract by Prokon Nord Energiesysteme GmbH for a 26-megawatt (MW) circulating fluidized-bed (CFB) steam generator to be located in Oostrozebeke, Belgium.

The new biomass-fired boiler will be owned by A&S Energy, a partnership between renewable power company, Aspiravi, and wood products manufacturing firm Spano, which operates a facility in Oostrozebeke. Spano will be responsible for the supply of non-recyclable wood residue to be used as fuel and the electricity produced will be sold to the local grid. Foster Wheeler will design and supply the steam generator and auxiliary equipment. Commercial operation of the new boiler is scheduled for the autumn of 2010.

“Foster Wheeler's CFB technology provides environmentally friendly fuel flexibility for demolition wood fired plants, such as this,’” said Tomas Harju-Jeanty, president and CEO of Foster Wheeler Energia Oy.
