When contributing to Biomass & Power Generation projects, Buttimer Engineering provides complete turnkey design, specification, procurement and installation of bulk material handling systems to the power generation industry - offering an expert partner to deliver a complex aspect of plant design and construction. Applying our core expertise of bulk materials handling to this sector, Buttimer provide fuel and ash handling solutions - which may include fuel intake equipment, conveyors, elevators, weighers and silos, much of which must be capable of handling abrasive fuel and hot ash - to power, waste, incinerator, CHP and other combustion facilities.
Along with fuel and ash handling systems, ducting systems, aspiration, piping, exhaust stacks and firewater storage systems are also common elements of power station mechanical system design. Buttimer can design fabricate and install these elements along with structure steel, walkways and supports. From turnkey plant development or project contracting, to small maintenance or upgrade requirements, Buttimer Engineering can provide the design, procurement, project management and on-site installation teams required to ensure effective and efficient delivery of the solution required.
Biomass can be diverse (ranging from household waste, to agricultural by-products to wood-pellets) and certain varieties can be difficult bulk products to handle - Buttimer have been developing considerable expertise the handling of various biomass products and can offer expert guidance in handling and storage requirements. Managing emitted dust, compaction, self-heating and degradation of biomass products can be particularly important for designing safety, storage and handling system design. Whether a turnkey power generation facility, a converted fossil fuel plant or miscellanious upgrades or maintenance of existing facilities, Buttimer is an ideal mechanical engineering partner.
