Petro Bio to supply biomass research boiler to Chalmers University of Technology
Sweden-based burner specialist Petro Bio AB has announced that it has been selected by Akademiska Hus / Chalmers University of Technology in Gothenburg, Sweden to supply a new biomass-fired boiler. The boiler plant will be used as a research boiler with the ability to produce electricity via turbine and district heating via a condenser.
According to a statement, the boiler is a 40Bar specially designed boiler and will be fired with wood powder, bio-oil, LPG and a product gas from nearby boiler 1. The technology level of delivery is generally very high and Petro Bio was chosen as a total supplier, motivating “the technical standard of the plant far exceeds what is demanded”.
The assembly work will be carried out in mid-2018 and the plant will eventually be handed over to the customer during the first quarter of 2019. As a supplier of boiler and pressure vessels, Petro Bio has chosen Boiler Works. They were mainly chosen for their approach to providing a boiler that fits the purpose of research very well.
