A subsidiary of Foster Wheeler’s Global Power Group has secured a contract from Lunds Energi for a 35MWe biomass-fired circulating fluidized-bed (CFB) boiler island in Sweden.

The value of the contract has not been disclosed.

The firm will be responsible for the design and supply the steam generator and auxiliary equipment, and will carry out the erection and commissioning of the boiler island.

The steam generator will be designed to burn 100% bio fuel with up to 50% demolition wood.

Currently, Lunds Energi is building the new combined heat and power plant to replace existing old equipment operating on fossil fuels.

Commercial operation of the new steam generator is scheduled for the second quarter of 2014.

Lunds Energi is a municipality-owned energy supplier in the Southern region of Sweden.
