The Task

So as to fulfil the task to design a waste to energy plant based on economic parameters with the highest possible efficiency, different plant capacities were examined in close cooperation with the client and the Belgian power supply company Biostoom Oostende nv (formerly Electrawinds Biostoom N.V.). The secured amount of fuel was a decisive factor for the maximum plant capacity. 


The Solution

The optimum overall economic solution for the planned project was found using the basic planning of an already implemented boiler type with a relevant high capacity.

In the presence of an average fuel throughput of around 17 t/h, the steam generator is capable of producing a volume of steam of approx. 80 t/h at a pressure of 42 bar and a temperature of 400 °C. The steam turbine is designed for full condensing operation. A steam amount up to 19.4 MW can be electrically generated. In close cooperation, Standardkessel Baumgarte accompanied the client’s services throughout the entire project.
