Weather conditions, price fluctuations and changing government regulations can all add a disruptive element at biomass-fired power plants.
To provide plant operators with fuel flexibility, our boiler specialists make it possible for biomass-fired plants to handle new fuel types or adjust their mix of current fuels.
Biomass isn’t just biomass, however. The complex chemical composition of certain biomass types can damage a boiler’s inner workings if steps aren’t taken to prevent corrosion.
Our adapted designs, cleaning technology and select materials take these stress factors into account. A upgraded plant that burns wood pellets, for example, can draw on other sources from the lumber industry. This is especially valuable if the supply of wood pellets changes.
We’ve implemented these upgrades for decades, so plant operators can expect a level of excellence where durability and reliable operation is a given.
