Snowflake White Mountain Power’s goals serve to define project scope:
Solution: Purchasing a New BFB while Reusing Existing Equipment Enabled Customer to Meet Schedule and Reduce Project Costs
B&W has extensive experience with boiler conversions and modifications, including almost total replacement of older and inactive boilers.
B&W’s renewable solution: an open-bottom, BFB combustor unit – to increase steam flow, meet low emissions requirements, enhance fuel flexibility and deliver reliable capacity.
Increased steam capacity on renewable fuels positions customer as a viable, independent electricity producer in today’s renewable marketplace.
Burning paper mill sludge as a fuel source reduces associated landfill needs and costs.
B&W’s expert design and technical prowess with products for the renewable energy market are assets for its customers – like Snowflake White Mountain Power – assuring their project’s certainty of outcome.
This renewable project, slated for operation in the 4th Quarter 2007, resulted in converting a once abandoned boiler into a valuable asset at a lower capital cost. It is anticipated that the plant will serve as a benchmark project, which could be replicated in other areas of the country.
