Green’s delivers for ground-breaking Danish biomass CHP plant

Green’s has completed the design and manufacture of innovative waste heat recovery equipment for EPC contractor Valmet that will be installed at Danish utility HOFOR’s Amagerværket heat and power plant in Copenhagen. The plant is due to become operational in 2019 and will be critical to the city’s aim to become carbon neutral by 2025.

The final phase of delivery from Green’s Wakefield factory is air-heaters that will work alongside a 500 MWf CYMIC boiler with a district heat capacity of 415 MJ/s. The power plant’s net electricity production capacity will be approximately 150 MW and the boiler will use a total of 1.2 million tons of sustainable wood chips per year, replacing an old 600 MW coal-fired plant.

This is one of the largest projects Green’s has worked on and comprises around 2,000 tons of steel. Valmet initially selected Green’s to manufacture 12 economisers for HOFOR’s plant. Following highly successful completion of this initial contract, Valmet also asked Green’s to manufacture spiral finned air-heaters.

Green’s managing director Matthew Crewe says: “We were delighted to work on this project and to welcome HOFOR and Valmet to our factory so that they could see first-hand how we work.”
