A European trend in power generation is to convert coal-fired power plants to various degrees of co-firing or complete conversion and to construct new units fuelled with biomass such as straw, wood chips and pellets. Our expertise encompasses the full range of knowledge needed to successfully convert/build plants from fuel receipt and logistics to supply of power and heat and draws upon extensive project development and implementation experience, including specialist experience in areas such as boiler performance and emissions modelling, coal mill modifications, fire safety and explosion risk mitigation.
