Andritz will supply Sweden's Vaxjo Energi with biomass power boiler for new CHP

GRAZ, AUSTRIA, Dec. 13, 2012 (Press Release) - International technology Group ANDRITZ has received an order from the regional Swedish utility Växjö Energi AB to deliver a biomass power boiler island that will be part of a new combined heat and power plant. The plant will supply heat and power for the Växjö community in the province of Småland in southern Sweden and is scheduled to start up at the end of 2014.

The scope of supply includes the boiler island from the inlet to the fuel silos to boiler outlet, based on the well-proven bubbling fluidized bed design of ANDRITZ, which combines high efficiency with excellent environmental performance. The boiler will burn wood-based biomass (forest residue, bark, sawdust, and wood chips) to generate steam at the rate of 155 t/h, with steam parameters of 540 °C and 140 bar(a).
