Østkraft Orders Fuel-conversion to Biomass at AET

AET has received an order for the conversion of Østkraft's 20 year old boiler plant to combust biomass instead of coal.

The conversion and rebuilding with installation and commissioning will take place from July - September 2016.


AET-developed Spreader Stoker makes efficient co-firing possible.

After the conversion the plant will be capable of firing 100% biomass or 100% coal or all other combinations in between. This is possible thanks to AET's in-house knowledge and expertise and the AET Combi Spreader Stoker.


AET has an extensive experience with refurbishment and improvement of plants, a.o. Previously, AET has been responsible for a similar conversion of the plant VERDO in Randers. VERDO has since 2009 also been responsible for giving advice to Østkraft, in order for them to select the best technology.


Hans Erik Askou, CEO at Aalborg Energie Technik a/s, states:

”At AET, we are very happy that this project will now come to realisation after several years of project work. We are proud that AET has been selected to be responsible for the core part of the project: Supply and conversion of the combustion plant. An efficient and constructive cooperation among all involved is the AET approach to reach the target of an on time and well-functioning and flexible plant. The concept is well proven in a similar project, which we have already completed for Verdo in Randers.”
