Doosan Lentjes was awarded the contract by DHE (Dinslakener Holz-Energiezentrum) to build the lot 1 of the new wood combustion plant, located in Dinslaken. The order comprises the turnkey delivery, installation and commissioning of two incineration lines on a chute-to-stack basis. Start-up is expected to be in mid of 2023.
Once in operation, the new plant will thermally treat about 200,000 tons of waste wood (class l-lll) per year. Applying effective incineration technology will ensure that the maximum of the climate-friendly energy contained in the wood is harnessed to generate sustainable electricity and heat. This will reduce the share of fossil fuels required to meet local energy needs and save more than 125,000 tons of CO2 per year, helping the City of Dinslaken to pursue its strict decarbonisation policy.
Doosan Lentjes' scope of delivery will include the fuel supply and transports as well as the combustion and boiler plant based on water-cooled reciprocating grate technology. In addition, the company will provide a complete dry flue gas cleaning system, stack as well as electrical & control systems.
The modern air quality control facility will ensure compliance with emission limit values according to the revised European BREF (best available techniques reference) documents. Harmful acid gases, hydrocarbons and heavy metals will be treated and separated in the Circoclean® gas cleaning system to be installed, while the selective catalytic reduction (SCR) will remove nitrogen oxides.
Gerhard Lohe, Product Director Waste-to-Energy at Doosan Lentjes comments: “In Dinslaken, we are ready to prove the flexibility of both our incineration and flue gas cleaning processes. Originally used in traditional waste-to-energy applications, we will adapt our grate technology to the combustion properties of biomass fuels and thus ensure efficient use of their energetic potential. Furthermore, the plant will be the first of its kind to comply with the new BREF requirements. This means that it will not only burn an almost CO2-neutral fuel, but will also produce negligible emissions. This reflects our efforts to support the industry in shaping the energy transition and make tomorrow’s heat and power generation more sustainable.”
