The scope of supply included the complete flue gas treatment and water treatment systems ensuring the fulfillment of the most advanced requirements in terms of environmental protection.

A few months before completion, BWSC entered into an asset deal with BWE for the acquisition of the their biomass activities and other activities. The Lisbjerg project was completed by BWSC.
