Babcock & Wilcox (B&W), through its Denmark-based subsidiary Babcock & Wilcox Volund (B&W Volund), has secured a $30m contract to supply necessary equipments for a waste-to-energy, combined heat and power plant in Lidkoping, Sweden.

Lidkoping Varmeverk owns the waste-to-energy facility, that produces electricity, hot water and district heating.

Under the contract, B&W Volund will design and supply a boiler, combustion system, emissions control components and other equipment for the expansion of a waste-to-energy project.

Engineering work is currently underway at the power project, which is scheduled for completion in early 2013.

B&W president and CEO Brandon Bethards said B&W Volund’s waste-to-energy combustion and emissions control technologies are an ideal fit to meet the growing demand for turnkey waste-to-energy plants.

B&W Volund is a supplier of equipment and technologies designed to convert household waste and biomass into thermal energy.

B&W is a provider of clean energy technology and services, primarily for the nuclear, fossil and renewable power markets.
