Last year we announced that Geldof was awarded the fuel-handling scope for the conversion of the coal fire boiler at RWE Eemshaven to co-firing with biomass. You can read more about the scope in our previous newspost.
As for now, work on site is in full swing. Since April, we started civil works, which are nearing completion. Foundations and rails for the ship unloader are ready and the intermediate floor in the silo, that already contains 150 tons of reinforcement, is installed. Mechanical works have also started. The stairway is placed next to the silo and the penthouse and silo roof are almost finished on site
Not only at our shop and on site everyone is working in full force, also at the subcontractor they do all they can to deliver the necessary parts on time. As they say, teamwork makes the dream work.
We still have a long way to go before the first pellets will be fed into the boiler, but seeing the installation grow day after day gives us the drive to continue and go for it together.
