Biomass in Motion

When complete, a new B&W Loibl conveying system will transport biomass pellet fuel 500m from quay to plant at RWE Generation NL’s Amercentrale power plant in Geertruidenberg, Netherlands. Engineering is underway in our Straubing, Germany offices to design multiple explosion-protected chain conveyors and screw conveyors for safe and reliable fuel feed.

Machinery that Bends over Backwards

Leaking or cracked tubes can create unsafe conditions, result in loss of efficiency and force downtime. So when you need to replace carbon, stainless or alloy steel tubes for your superheater, economizer, generating bank, or other pressure part equipment -- strong, fast and to your exact measurements – time is of the essence.

B&W service centers are equipped with extensive raw material inventory and state-of-the-art hot and cold tube bending machinery, so tubes can be cut, bent and shipped out on short notice.
