Port handling with explosion protection: biomass transport at the port of Copenhagen

Category: renewable energy | | Created by

Jules Fricke, managing director of Loibl Förderanlagen GmbH:

“Our individual ship unloading conveyor technology meets all the requirements for industrial biomass handling. These sophisticated systems support our customers in switching to renewable resources."

Loibl delivers to Denmark. For HOFOR, the largest supply company in Denmark, Loibl designed an economically efficient, individual solution for the transport of biomass (wood chips) from the port to the incineration plant at the end of 2019. HOFOR supplies around 20% of the entire Danish population with water, heat, electricity and gas.

Our process engineering for a cleaner environment. In the Port of Copenhagen, 3,200 m³/h of biomass are handled daily at the Amagerværket power plant. The amount of dust that arises during loading increases the risk of ignition. With more than 60 years of experience in individually conceptualized bulk materials transport and as a competent partner in the field of fire-endangered and explosive bulk goods, Loibl developed an innovative, ATEX-compliant conveying concept that more than lived up to the expectations of the largest Danish energy supplier.
