A new KMW 600 BHP high pressure biomass steam boiler is in full production at the Forestiéres D.G sawmill. The new boiler is operating on 100% wet bark at 60% moisture. Forestiéres D.G invested in a new KMW system and is saving significantly each month by burning low value wet bark and selling their dry wood residue.
KMW successfully completed performance and particulate emissions testing at this sawmill. The average test result from three tests was 20% below the contracted limit. The KMW system meets the new 150 mg/Rm3 limit with mechanical dust collection only, a first in North America. The capability of burning wet bark at 60% moisture very clean and efficient is a landmark for the KMW design.
KMW has contracted with Georges River Energy / Robbins Lumber in Maine for the design and supply of a complete biomass energy system to generate 8.5 MW of electric power from fuelbin to gas stack including turbine, generator and cooling tower. Startup is summer 2018. “This project is strategically significant for KMW as it confirms our technical and cost advantages in the CHP market” says KMW CEO Eric Rosen.
KMW exhibits at the EXPO Energia 2016 in Tampere, Finland. “This is our first exhibition at a European Trade Show and a strategic move into the European market” says KMW CEO Eric Rosen.
The CHP plant at Hefler Forest Products was designed for 3.1 MW of electric power. The production has increased to 3.5 MWe and has the potential of achieving 3.7 MWe. This successful plant is generating renewable power while also supplying steam for the mill.
KMW have contracted with Energest for their Probiomass project in Porto, Portugal for the design and supply of the biomass energy system which will generate 14 MW of electric power. “This project is a clear indication that KMW is very competitive in terms of technology and cost in the European market” says KMW CEO Eric Rosen.
Many of the KMW systems have been in service for more than 20 years and are now benefitting from upgrading the control system. The result is increased efficiency and performance. Projects completed are also yielding increased reliability and decreased emissions.
KMW CEO Eric Rosen will share his experience on “Sustainable Biomass Energy for Communities” at the Energy Symposium 2015 on January 22-23 at the Cedar Meadows Resort & Spa in Timmins. This event is hosted by Five Nations Energy Inc. & Mushkegowuk Tribal Council.
