Geldof wood pellet facility for power plant

Engicon nv (Geldof) was awarded a contract for a wood pellet handling facility at the Uniper power plant (E.ON) at the Maasvlakte in Rotterdam, The Netherlands.

Uniper has decided to modify its existing power plant in order to be able to co-combust wood pellets and by doing so, become more carbon efficient and limit any possible adverse effects on the environment even further.
The scope of Geldof comprises the mechanical materials handling system, including Electrical, Instrumentation & Controls. The handling system includes the transport system from the ship unloading hopper to the storage silos as well as the unloading of the silos and feed to the boiler house. Basic and detailed engineering has already started and start-up of the new installation is scheduled by the end of 2018. This fuel handling solution for the biomass-to-power industry is one of many Geldof has designed and delivered across Europe the last decade.
