Ramboll has signed a contract with Foster Wheeler Energy Ltd to design automation, electrification and instrumentation for the world’s largest power plant fired entirely by biomass fuel. The new CFB (Circulating Fluidized Bed) “Green Unit” will be built and located in Polaniec, Poland. The Ramboll contract was signed on June 29, 2010.
Ramboll is providing engineering consultancy services to the conversion of Lynemouth Power Station from coal to biomass. The converted plant will export around 390MW of low carbon electricity to the national grid.
Studstrup Power Station in Aarhus is about to reach the end of its service life and will now undergo extensive renovation. Ramboll is advising the plant's owner, DONG Energy, in all project phases for this work from analysis through to commissioning.
In 2015, Ramboll entered a contract for the bioconversion of one of DuPont’s production plants in Denmark.
Ramboll assisted in the procurement of a new wood-chip fired biomass power plant designed to receive, handle and incinerate 55,000 tonnes of biomass per annum.
Siekierki CHP boiler OP230 K-1 conversion to biomass fired BFB boiler. The project included conversion of the boiler and implementation of biomass handling systems.
First CHP plant to mix inland fuel such as waste, straw, wood chips and bio gas.
One of the worlds most efficient biomass power plant for district heating is situated in Lillestrøm near Oslo, Norway. Ramboll was consultant to Akershus Fjernvarme AS and assisted the client with the planning and procurement of the new plant.
In Immingham, UK, Graham Construction appointed Ramboll as special adviser for the design and development of the Immingham Renewable Fuels Terminal (IRFT). Today, it stands as the world’s largest port terminal for wood pellets.
The plant will receive up to two thousand wet tonnes of municipal sewage sludge per day, transported by road from eleven sewage treatment works. This sludge will be treated in four incineration streams, consisting of fluidized bed furnaces with heat recovery and flue gas cleaning equipment. Ramboll is ‘Independent Consultant’ for the process elements of the plant, working closely with another consultant in Hong Kong.
Studstrup Power Station in Aarhus is about to reach the end of its service life and will now undergo extensive refurbishment. Ramboll is advising the owner of the plant, DONG Energy, in all project phases for this work from analysis through to commissioning.
In 2016, DONG Energy’s Avedøre Power Plant Unit 1 will deliver green heat and power to the citizens of Copenhagen. Besides a bio-conversion the project also comprises a lifetime extension which is planned for 2018. Ramboll advises on the project that constitutes a major and highly efficient biomass conversion scheme.
Located on the coast just south of Copenhagen, Unit 2 of Avedøre Power Station uses natural gas (Ngas), oil, straw and wood pellets for simultaneous generation of heat and electricity. The plant is one of the most energy efficient plants in the world, as it exploits up to 94 percent of the energy in the fuels and operates with an electrical efficiency of up to 49 percent.
The Sludge Treatment Centre at Dalderse in Falkirk, Scotland, is part of a large waste water treatment works dating from the 1960s and owned by Scottish Water. In 2010, Ramboll investigated using biogas by-products from the works to fuel vehicles or supply the gas grid. Ramboll Energy's current feasibility study determines the measures necessary to implement co-digestion of commercial and industrial waste with sewage sludge, and updates our earlier findings on exploiting the biogas as a commercial energy resource.At Dalderse, 432 tonnes per day of sewage sludge from several sites is digested in two mesophilic anaerobic digesters, where bacteria break down the sludge to produce methane and other by-products. Anaerobic digestion is standard UK practice for rendering a harmful mat ...
DONG Energy's new biofuel plant in Kalundborg, Denmark, produces second generation bioethanol. Ramboll has played an important role in the construction of the plant. The advanced 3D modelling in particular has been crucial for finishing the project ahead of the COP15 conference.
With the introduction of new technologies, biofuels could make out a sustainable strategy in the Norwegian aviation industry by 2025. But it takes by-product sales to make it profitable, states Ramboll report.
Ramboll is Client Consultant to the Skolkovo Foundation, established by the Russian President to develop Skolkovo Innovation Centre. Covering an area of 400 ha just outside of Moscow, the Centre is supposed to be Russia’s response to Silicon Valley.
