BWSC has supplied more than 180 turnkey power plants to 54 countries for a total capacity of +4,100 MWe. We also operate and maintain power plants around the globe.
Our in-house boiler division designs biomass systems with 15 to 400 MWe of capacity. By using locally sourced biomass, the plants supply businesses and private homes with renewable energy. We have also converted traditional power plants, so they can use biomass instead of fossil fuels. Our turnkey waste-to-energy power plants give stakeholders additional options when planning tomorrow’s energy solutions.
The Hooton Bio Power facility will be the first non-subsidised merchant gasification facility in the UK and it is the first time the UK market will realise a gasification plant of this size, based on fluidised bed technology provided by Japanese Kobelco Eco Solution.
Kent Renewable Energy is located in Sandwich, Kent and produces renewable heat and power which is delivered to nearby business and science park, Discovery Park, and to local power consumers connected to UKPN’s grid.
On 22 April 2017, the Snetterton Renewable Energy Plant was handed over to the owners after a construction period of 29 months, which is one month ahead of schedule and within the agreed investment budget of GBP 175m. The biomass plant has a capacity of 44MW and will generate enough green electricity to supply 82,000 homes and save over 300,000 tonnes of CO2 every year.
The Kent, UK biomass power plant will have a capacity of 27.8 MW and will be fired primarily with virgin wood sourced locally in the UK. The power plant is expected to be in operation during the summer of 2018.
BWSC will be delivering a high-efficiency biomass plant in Cramlington, Northern England. The project is backed by solid UK green energy investors and is in line with the UK target of efficient and renewable energy.
The BWSC bio dust burner has a very advanced, efficient and robust design for the combustion of bio dust from pellets. Inspection, service and wear parts requirements are very low – all contributing to an economical and reliable operation. We recommend to install burners in connection with a general update of the entire firing and feeding system. […]
BWSC has developed an innovative and efficient system for grate firing of straw in biomass boilers. Depending on the size of the boiler, the firing system consists of one or more firing lines fed by a bale distribution system which receives the bales from a straw barn with automatic cranes. The firing line ends at the inlet […]
Multifuel concept – an efficient way to reduce CO2 emissions In 2008 BWSC (then BWE) was awarded a contract from Ørsted for the design, supply, erection and commissioning of 4 burners for pulverized biomass (wood pellets) inclusive of pulverized fuel piping and the necessary modifications of the primary and secondary air systems at Herning Power Plant in […]
The great potential of biomass BWSC’s (then: BWE) equipment represents the leading technological example for the future of biomass for power generation. BWSC has demonstrated the operational flexibility of biomass power plants in terms of fuel interchangeability, pollution control and low cost of maintenance with the best performances. The first straw fired biomass power plant in Germany […]
Today, approximately 70% of renewable energy consumption in Denmark is bioenergy-based, mostly in the form of straw, wood and renewable wastes. This White Paper gives an overview of Denmark’s solutions, cases and experiences in transforming sustainable biomass resources into competitive bioenergy solutions.
One of Denmark’s largest biomass fired combined heat and power (CHP) plants is located in the Aarhus area and was put into operation in spring 2017. It is a vital part of the Municipality of Aarhus’ Climate Strategy, which has replacing fossil fuels with sustainable energy as one of its cornerstones.
In this whitepaper we share some of Denmark’s solutions and experiences in transforming sustainable biomass resources into competitive bioenergy solutions. Due to the extensive use of bioenergy, there is an abundance of expertise available in this field. In addition to hosting several top-efficient, full-scale biomass plants, Denmark is an industry hub and testing ground for […]
