UK Biomass Project Chooses Contractor

[RenewableEnergyAccess.com] Foster Wheeler Energy, a global power-plant engineer and manufacturer, was awarded a $53 million contract by SembCorp Utilities UK to design, engineer, construct and commission the boiler island for SembCorp’s biomass-fueled power station at its Wilton International site on Teesside. The project, known as Wilton 10, has a total investment cost of $114 million, and is one of the UK’s largest biomass renewable energy projects. Wilton 10 will burn green and recycled wood, and will be required to meet the emission limits of the EU’s Large Combustion Plant Directive and Waste Incineration Directive. It will also be subject to a Best Available Techniques assessment subject to review by the Environment Agency of the UK. The power plant will burn around 300,000 tons of wood a year. This will come from a variety of sources, including specially grown energy crops, forestry logs, sawmill chips and recycled timber.
