World’s Largest 100% Biomass Boiler Planned

Text size: A A

GDF Suez, the French-based utility, has awarded Foster Wheeler AG’s Global Power Group a contract to design, supply and erect a 190-MW biomass powerplant. The circulating fluidized-bed boiler island will be located at the Polaniec Power Station, about 60 miles northeast of Krakow. Foster Wheeler will design and supply the steam generator and auxiliary equipment as well as provide the civil works, erection and commissioning of the boiler island. The firm says it will be the world’s largest biomass boiler burning wood residues and up to 20% agricultural biomass but neither coal nor natural gas. The contract’s value was not made public. Construction is expected to begin during fall 2010 and be completed by late 2012.
