Geldof fired up for co-firing project

We are pleased to announce that Geldof has recently been awarded another large full-scope fuel handling project. RWE has trusted Geldof with the contract for the fuel-handling scope of the co-firing project at its Eemshaven plant in the Netherlands. The project, which has a contract value ranging in the tens of millions, consists of the conversion of part of RWE’s coal plant to co-firing biomass (wood pellets). As an EPC contractor, Geldof will be responsible for civil works, electrical works and cabling, firefighting and explosion protection and suppression, as well as for the handling and storage installation. The fuel handling lot contains various handling equipment, including a sidewall conveyor and vertical screw conveyors, while the storage lot exists of a 12.000m³ concrete silo with steel roof with a vibrating floor as reclaiming system.

We would like to thank RWE for their trust in our company and we are looking forward to a successful and mutually beneficial relationship.
