The system will be part of a new combined heat and power (CHP) plant that will
use waste wood and forest residues as its fuel.
We are very proud to have been trusted again by Jämtkraft and to be able to continue our good cooperation for delivering another fuel handling solution, said Thomas Karlsson, Managing Director of BMH Technology AB, the Swedish subsidiary.
In short, the delivery by BMH Technology consists of a 1 500 m3 receiving hopper equipped with two screw reclaimers, a fuel quality control station including magnetic separation of metals and screening of oversized material, an emergency
feeding pocket, and a conveying system to the boiler’s day silo.
All auxiliary equipment as well as electrification are also included in the delivery. The capacity of the system is 240 m3 per hour. The total order value is approximately EUR 6 million.
BMH will deliver important parts for our new heat and power plant, which we are building to secure renewable heat for our customers in Östersund and to enable the city to grow further. Our previous experiences of cooperation with BMH are good and we look forward to working together on this project, said Ulf Lindqvist, Business Area Manager of Jämtkraft Värme.
The fuel handling system will be delivered and installed in 2023 and the facility will be taken over at the beginning of 2025.
