Biomass-to-Energy references

Holz 1366 200

since 03-2016, HVC, Uppsala Sweden

By this project the fuel of one existing boiler unit (HVC) will be converted from peat to wood pellets. While other units remain in operation, a new pellets unloading, a silo for storage, a new mill house and new wood dust burners will be installed.

  • white pellets as fuel
  • 132 MW firing capacity
  • Contracts placed
  • Site works ongoing
  • end 2018 scheduled start-up

Buchhorn-Projects prepared specifications (ITT documents), evaluated proposals and is now the Purchaser´s Process Engineer to follow the Contractors during engineering and supply of the works.

since 01-2013, CARPE, Uppsala Sweden

Carpe Futurum is a new biomass (wood) utilising plant to provide heat to the Uppsala district heat network, but electricity might also be provided in the future.

  • woody biomass as fuel
  • 100 MW firing capacity
  • 2021 scheduled start-up

Buchhorn-Projects prepared the basic design package and specifications (ITT documents). Contract negotiations with Tenderers just started.
Carpe will be placed on an area currently in use as peat storage (in containers).
