The contract covers delivery of a quay-based receiving hopper, belt conveying system to open storage, receiving hopper for front loader feeding, sampling system, fuel preparation with magnetic separation of ferrous and screening of oversized materials, a 5,000m³ fuel silo with screw reclaimer and conveying to boiler.
The equipment can move 1,000m³/h of biomass to storage and/or silo and 300m³/h to the plant’s boiler.
BMH has an annual turnover of €60m, a 140-strong staff and subsidiaries in Sweden, Poland and China.
