Aalborg Energie Technik a/s Biomass Power Plant

EPR Glanford (Fibrogen), Scunthorpe, UK

The Task

The Glanford Power Station was originally designed as a poultry litter-fired power plant commissioned in 1993, producing power to the British National Grid.


After the foot and mouth epidemic that ravaged the UK, it was necessary to dispose of large amounts of meat and bone meal (MBM). As a result, it was decided to retrofit the plant in order to utilise the MBM as fuel.


The Solutions

The retrofit: 100% MBM-fired power plant

In 1999, AET retrofitted the power plant with a redesigned fuel dosing system, advanced spreader stoker and upgrade of furnace and secondary air system
