Doosan to supply turbine to biomass power plant in Denmark
 


In Kalundborg, Denmark, the construction of a biomass-fired power station has been started. It will also supply heat

to households and neighbouring businesses in addition to supplying electricity. A machine room delivered by Pilsen,

Czech Republic-based Doosan Škoda Power will be the heart of the Asnæs environmentally-friendly power station.
 
A groundbreaking ceremony marked the beginning of the construction in Kalundborg of a new biomass-fired unit

intended for combined heat and power generation and for process steam supply. Asnæs Power Station has been

operating the largest coal-fired power station in Denmark so far and this new project is to ensure a greener life and,

in the future, stable and green district heating for the town and process steam for nearby industrial companies.
 
This universally beneficial project will primarily help to reduce CO2 emissions by 40 percent, or approximately 800

metric tons per year. “I am extremely proud of this project. We are successfully converting to green energy and this

biomass-fired power station will complement the nearby solar park. I would like to thank Dong, a company that I

believe is becoming a greener and more competitive energy provider,” said Martin Damm, the mayor of the town.
 
A still operating thermal power station, with a dusty coal storage site, stands close to the building site mobilised for

the future Asnæs power station. The old power station is adjacent to a seaport, which will be modified next year to

be able to receive up to 9.5-m draught ocean vessels with capacities for 40,000 cubic meters of wood chips. Thus,

the coal storage site will be transformed into a wood chip storage site with a capacity of 80,000 cubic meters; the

biomass-fired boiler needs 3,500 cubic meters of wood chips every day.
 
Doosan Škoda Power will deliver a complete machine room to the new power station, with a maximum capacity of 30

MW, equipped with an innovative two-casing turbine. “Next year will see the first deliveries to the building site; these

will be followed by installation work geared towards completing the mechanical installations in early 2019, while the

project is gradually being put into operation. The complete project is planned to be handed over to the customer in

late 2019,” Tomáš Winkler, project manager at Doosan Škoda Power, has disclosed.
 
Doosan Škoda Power signed the contract for the delivery of the complete machine room of the Asnæs power station

with DONG Energy Denmark last summer. The contract value is approximately EUR 14 million, or almost CZK 375

million.
