Foster Wheeler Wins Contract for Biomass Boilers

[RenewableEnergyAccess.com] Foster Wheeler Ltd. announced that a U.S. subsidiary in its Global Power Group has been awarded a contract exceeding $14 million by the Laurentian Energy Authority for design and supply of two biomass-fired grate boilers, each capable of producing 135,000 pounds per hour of steam. The project is a repowering of two existing utility power plants, and will involve the addition of a new biomass boiler at each site, as well as associated fuel handling facilities for biomass, new emissions control equipment, and modifications to existing plant mechanical and electrical systems to accommodate the additional boiler equipment. The new boilers will fire biomass fuels, including fast-growing trees that are specifically grown to provide fuel for the new boilers in a revolutionary farming scheme. In a closed loop system that will generate no net carbon dioxide to the environment, the new units will generate steam for electricity generation and sale, and will also supply district-heating steam.
