The Task

The councils of Aberdeen City, Aberdeenshire and Moray are constructing an energy from waste plant at the Aberdeen location, in the North-East of Scotland. ACCIONA will be responsible for the design and turnkey construction, commissioning and the O&M of the plant for a 20 year period. Standardkessel Baumgarte’s (SBG) scope of supply comprises designing and supply of the boiler plant, including the firing system and the flue gas cleaning system.


The Solution

The plant comprises a line for the thermal recycling of household waste. The core component supplied by SBG essentially consists of an air-cooled grate furnace and a steam generator for generating superheated steam with three vertical radiation passes, a horizontal convection pass and a vertical economiser. A selective non-catalytic denitrification plant (SNCR) and a quasi-dry flue gas cleaning plant with bag filter are used to clean the exhaust gases.
