Another important milestone was reached when steam purging at Filbornaverket in Helsingborg, Sweden, was approved on 6 September 2012.

According to contract, two subsequent steam purging target plates had to be approved.
The approval was brought home after 14 purges – of which eight were with target plates.

Filbornaverket makes it possible to use the region’s large quantities of combustible waste to produce electricity and district heating for the local grid. Filbornaverket is able to burn approx. 227,000 tonnes of waste per year – with an overall thermal efficiency of 100 %.

The new waste-to-energy plant in Helsingborg is scheduled for hand-over in early 2013.
