BWE Supplies Grate Fired Biomass Boiler to Brigg Renewable Energy in the UK


Burmeister & Wain Energy A/S (BWE) will supply the grate fired biomass boiler of the new straw-fired power plant of Brigg Renewable Energy in the UK, in cooperation with Burmeister & Wain Scandinavian Contractor (BWSC) of Denmark, main Contractor for design and turnkey supply of the plant.

BWE and BWSC have common roots in the old B&W shipyard, which was founded in Copenhagen 175 years ago.

BWE and BWSC have already jointly worked on the Sleaford Biomass Plant in the UK with great success. The plant is at the moment in the commissioning phase. The biomass power plant in Brigg is of the same type and is able to burn straw and up 50% wood chips, with a generation capacity of 40MWe. The total energy output corresponds to the consumption of 70.000 households and will result in an annual CO2 emission reduction of approx. 300,000 tones.

BWE is world leader of the straw firing technology for biomass power plants. This is an experience which has continuously developed since the first plants back in the 80ties. Brigg Renewable Energy plant is expected to be in operation in the beginning of 2016.
