Some of the benefits of an AET plant are:
High boiler and plant efficiency
» Optimised heat balance
» Good customer business case
The AET Combustion System is a well-proven technology and a brand in the biomass business. This system, together with the boiler design, optimises the combustion process giving our plants unique emissions and operational conditions such as low in-house power consumption and extremely high availability.
Altogether, the AET Combustion System forms a unique solution for AET's customers and several plants have been selected to be Best Available Technology (BAT) - as described in the IPPC report 'Large Combustion Plants' made by the EU in 2006.
The fuel handling systems are customised to the plant specific requirements and the basic design is within AET.
The water/steam cycle is optimised by experienced AET engineers with the use of advanced software programmes, and the STG is specified by AET and purchased from leading manufacturers.
These systems are very much linked to the boiler design; AET designs each component within the supply to make sure that it fits the overall design of the plant.
AET also offers its in-house designed and high performance AET SNCR deNOx system for new plants as well as retrofitting of existing plants.
Most often, AET supplies these systems since it is recognised within the industry that the the PLC control and SCADA system are essential for perfect control of the combustion and the high availability of the plant.
Helius CoRDe Ltd is a biomass-fired cogeneration plant in Scotland fuelled with a whisky by-product and clean wood. The plant was commissioned in 2013.
The AET Fuel Dosing System and the AET Combustion System has been perfected by skilled and very experienced engineers to burn a wide range of biomass fuels and to obtain the best possible availability and return on investment.
