Redecam Group has been awarded two more contracts to provide complete air pollution control (APC) systems for biomass energy plants by Burmeister & Wain Scandinavian Contractor A/S (BWSC). Redecam previously provided a turnkey APC system for BWSC’s Lisahally Biomass Plant in Derry/Londonderry, Northern Ireland. “Redecam has impressed us from start to finish. They react promptly, are excellent troubleshooters and work hard until the job is done,” says Carsten Lundstrøm, 
Lead Engineer 
for Flue Gas Treatment Systems at BWSC.

At the Widnes CHP biomass plant (20.2 MWe and 7.8 MWth) in Merseyside, England, Redecam is providing a flue gas treatment (FGT) system that will serve a waste wood-fuelled (& virgin wood as auxiliary) grate-fired drum boiler. Redecam will customize an air filtration system, a Dry Injection Desulfurization system with a reaction tower (DID-R) and a Mercury Adsorption System (MAS), designing them to surpass emission reduction targets for decades to come.

The second plant will become one of the largest straw firing plants in the world. The Snetterton project (44,2 MWe) in East Anglia, England, will benefit from a Redecam-designed Tail-End Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) DeNOX system. A Dry Injection Desulfurization system with a reactor (DID-R) and air filtration solutions, tailored to maximize efficiency and minimize operating costs, will be added.

Redecam APC solutions have been tailored for plants firing:

  • Waste wood chips
  • Virgin wood chips
  • Eucalyptus waste
  • Biomass pellets (and other dry biomass)
  • Bagasse
  • Green waste
  • Straw
