Tour I

Since 1968, the Studstrup Power Station is located near Kalø Vig north of Aarhus and has a total capacity of 714MW electricity and 986MJ/s district heating.  The power station has two units – units 3 and 4 – which were put into operation in 1984 and 1985. These have since then been modernized regularly. Today, unit 4 is taken out of day-to-day operation and is held in reserve. From 2014 to 2016, Studstrup Power Station’s unit 3 was converted making it able to use wood pellets instead of coal. The conversion makes Studstrup Power Station one of the biggest biomass-fuelled power stations in the world. In future, it is expected to produce district heating based on biomass for around 106,000 Danish homes as well as green electricity equivalent to the annual consumption of around 230,000 Danish homes.

Tour II

Skærbæk Power Station have since 1951 been situated at Skærbæk on the northern side of Kolding Fiord. Today, the Skærbæk Power Station consists of block 3 from 1997 with a capacity of 392MW electricity and 447MJ/s heating. At the commissioning in 1997 the Skærbæk Power Station’s unit 3 set the world record of natural gas fired plants with a total efficiency of 49 % at 100 % power production. At combined heat and power production the plant can achieve a total efficiency of 92 % which makes it one of the world’s most efficient power stations. From 2015-2017 Skærbæk Power Station is converting from natural gas into wood chips. The conversion means not only a whole new fuel storage and -logistic setup, but also two new boilers. The open wood chip storage facility has a maximum height of 30m and can store up to 80,000m3 of wood chips. This equates to approximately nine days of maximum heat production at Skærbæk Power Station.  The green Skærbæk Power Station is expected to be ready for the next heating season. From then on, the power station will use only wood chips produced from wood waste for the production of district heating to the Triangle Region Denmark.

Tour III

Exclusive site visit to the newly commissioned Lisbjerg biomass power plant. The plant, located in the suburb of Aarhus, Lisbjerg, is designed basically to burn locally produced wheat straw with a maximum of 240,000 tons per year. For flexibility and availability reasons, the plant is also designed to burn up to a maximum of approx. 50% of wood chips based on the heat input. The plant has a thermal input of 110 MWth and is capable of producing over 30 MW of electricity and 80 MW of district heat corresponding to one fifth of the district heating capacity of Aarhus City. The plant is equipped with an advanced flue gas cleaning and heat recovery system with DeNOx SCR, flue gas condensation and moisturizing of the combustion air. Focus points has been flexibility between heat and power production, as well as high fuel flexibility and high availability of the facility. The detailed planning started late 2013 and commissioning took place during the spring and summer of 2017. Owners engineer was COWI A/S and the boiler was constructed by BWSC.

Tour IV

Verdo’s combined heat and power plant (KVR) in Randers was commissioned in 1982 as a coal fired unit. The unit is a back pressure plant, equipment with two boilers each at 56 MW and one turbine at 50 MW. The unit was in 2009 refurbished, and are now 100 % fueled with biomass. The primary fuel is wood chips. In addition, other alternative biomass fuels are used. In 2010, an 18 MW fluegas condensation system was implemented to rise the efficiency.
By going from coal to biomass, the CO2 emission is reduced with 300.000 ton/y.  The fuel is handled by Verdo Energy, and are traded from both local European market as well from Africa. Verdo Energy is an international biomass trader who possesses unique competencies in procurement, freight, contract management and product development of fuels.

Atlantic Combustion Technologies Inc. is delighted to join the Biomass to Power Conference in Aarhus, Denmark in November this year to meet with industry leaders and discuss how our CoMate Ash Modifier technology can deliver a powerful reduction in operating costs, while also helping to reduce emissions. CoMate Ash Modifier is specifically designed to prevent, and often reverse, the build-up of hard ash deposits throughout virtually any industrial combustion system.

Two key factors differentiate our approach to ash fouling/emissions from other technologies and products. The first is that our application method, and the specific attributes of our ash modifier’s manufacture, have been engineered for this problem from the ground up. Rather than take standard raw materials such as kaolinite or MgO, we have tailored our system and product (CoMate) to target precisely where the problem of hard ash starts – combustion. The second key attribute is that CoMate is a 100% fuel-independent solution. CoMate can solve tenacious deposition issues comprehensively, particularly with biomass fuels which often present these issues more significantly with such fuels as agricultural residues and other lower quality biomass fuels. Application regimes are very straightforward and easily deployed using our custom-built feeder systems.
