(AKRON, Ohio – April 30, 2020) – Babcock & Wilcox Vølund A/S (Vølund), a subsidiary of Babcock & Wilcox Enterprises, Inc. (B&W) (NYSE: BW), has been awarded a multi-year service contract for two U.K. waste-to-energy plants owned by Viridor, and a plant upgrade service contract for Frederikshavn Forsyning A/S’s combined heat and power waste-to-energy plant in Frederikshavn, Denmark. The combined value of the contracts is more than $4 million.
Under the first agreement, Vølund will provide inspection, maintenance and optimization services for equipment it previously supplied to Viridor’s low-carbon heat and energy facilities.

“We thank Frederikshavn Forsyning and Viridor for the confidence they have shown in us,” Morgan said.
