Padd Energy

40MW Biomass Fuelled Energy Centre

Team members at Padd Energy provided site-based construction and commissioning management for the installation of a wood chip fired energy centre providing 40MW of heat and 14MW of electricity to a municipal district heating network in the North of Sweden.


Our services include:

The plant was designed and constructed under a turnkey Engineer, Procure and Construct (EPC) contract by a Scandinavian contractor using suppliers from a number of European countries. The installation included a first of a kind design of fluidised bed combustor requiring specialist technical input during commissioning.

The plant was built to replace an ageing energy centre providing heat to a municipal heat network.

The design included packages from a number of different suppliers sourced from different countries. This presented unique challenges at the site level in ensuring that language barriers and working practices were reconciled.
