World’s largest Waste-to-Energy (WTE) plant installs IMI Precision Engineering system


Division:IMI Precision Engineering

Date:October 2014

When operational in 2016 the ARC plant in Copenhagen, Denmark, where they incinerate household waste to produce heat and steam that drives turbines and produces electricity, will be by far the largest of its kind in the world and a reference plant for future WTE plants.

The customer, Babcock & Wilcox Vølund (B & W Vølund), a leader in both WTE and biomass, had problems with their current solution which was unstable and incurred excessive maintenance; they needed a ‘state-of-the-art’ solution. IMI Precision Engineering’s robust and more efficient impact cylinder system provides less noise, more adjustment possibilities, better feedback, programming flexibility and a longer lifespan of boiler.

This solution helps our costumer to save life costs, reduces the acquisition cost and ultimately gives our customer competitive advantage.

There is now potential for IMI Precision Engineering to assist B & W Vølund on 3-6 to projects per year with two already in the pipeline.
