One of the largest European electricity producers, Uniper (the former E.ON Benelux) , selected TME as their main contractor in their endeavor to increase the environmental sustainability of their coal-fired power station located on the Maasvlakte. TME designed, built and installed a storage and transport system which enables Uniper to co-fire meat and bone meal (MBM). Meat and bone meal (MBM) is a CO2 neutral fuel, and hence a good candidate for substituting fossil fuels like coal.
TME delivered a safe and certified installation that enables the storage and transportation of the meat and bone meal from the storage facilities into the burners. The proficiency of our project and quality management was successfully tried by the comprehensive and challenging health, safety and environmental regulations that apply for power stations.
The installation comprises the following main components:
|TME scope of work||concept engineering, detail engineering, production drawings, fabrication, installation, project management|
|Storage capacity||2 x 600m3 (2 x 400 Tonnes)|
|Maximum supply capacity||13.6 Tonnes/hour|
|Conveyor length||60m horizontal + 30m vertical + 8m inclined|
|Regulations & Directives||ATEX, VCA, General Safety Regulations EON Benelux N.V., CE marking|
