Technical Data Reference Sheet


With the thermal waste-treatment-plant, now under full operation in Plymouth, the Mannheimer MVV Umwelt O&M achieves to supply power and heat obtained from municipal waste and industrial waste utilisation process to the neighbouring HM Naval Base. Standardkessel Baumgarte received the order to supply the complete firing and steam generator system. Owing to the specified space conditions a conception featuring a potential high efficiency of the combustion line had to be developed.



The intended installation of the vertical economisers in two one behind the other situated boiler passes leads to a flexible boiler operation with low exhaust gas temperatures. This arrangement of the economiser enables a Sodium Bicarbonate injection between the economiser passes and results in a large residence and reaction time of the additive to achieve reduced emission values.
