The contract will see Babcock & Wilcox (B&W) provide technologies and services for the project, including GMAB™ flue gas treatment technologies, SPIG™ air-cooled condensers, Diamond Power boiler cleaning equipment and engineering in both B&W’s Denmark and U.S. offices.
Utilising residual waste to generate 60+ megawatts of energy for residents and businesses, this plant will process around 600,000 tonnes of waste annually.
Executive vice president and chief operating officer of B&W says, 'B&W’s waste-to-energy, environmental and other technologies will play a critical role in decarbonization and the transition to renewable energy, and we’re pleased to contribute our expertise to the Lostock project'.
Morgan also expressed the importance of the EfW sector in providing a 'powerful solution' for eliminating emissions of methane gas from landfill and producing 'clean, renewable power'.
B&W Environmental's GMAB flue gas cleaning and flue gas condensation technologies are applicable for a wide range of applications, including waste-to-energy, co-incineration and hazardous waste incineration plants.
The company’s SPIG dry cooling technologies can be tailored for many applications and are a sustainable and environmentally conscious cooling solution, eliminating water discharge and protecting the environment.
B&W’s Diamond Power boiler cleaning systems are available in steam/air, high pressure water, and dual-media air heater cleaning configurations and are ideally suited for renewable and waste-to-energy applications.
The Lostock waste-to-energy plant is scheduled to begin commercial operation in late 2025.
