Fuel handling system for a heating plant in Haapajärvi was one of Laitex’s successful turn-key solutions. Haapajärven Lämpö needed a supplier for their plants’ fuel handling and biomass treatment.
Haapajärven Lämpö invested in a new 20 MWth fluidized bed boiler plant that uses wood chips, sawmill by-products and untreated recycled wood as fuel. Laitex started the biomass handling equipment deliveries and installations in the early 2020’s and the plant was commissioned February 2021.
"Laitex has been a flexible partner that has responded quickly to project requirements. We have been satisfied with Laitex's knowhow and it's expertise served our investment excellently."
New fuel handling system
Laitex provided a new fuel handling system to Haapajärvi. The fuel handling system included an 800 cubic meter four-block chain discharger, a conveyor to the screening building, screening with iron separation and over-size crushing as well as a conveyor to the boiler’s day silos. In addition, the fuel handling system included process equipment such as dust removal systems, automation, instrumentation, and electrification.
