Nelson Pine Industries

20 MW Wood Waste fired Hydrograte boiler at Nelson Pine Industries, Nelson
Description of facility: 

Nelson Pine Industries Ltd is the largest MDF plant in the World. A major expansion to include a Laminated Veneer Lumber Plant (LVL) on the same site in 2001 required an additional 20 MW Easteel (now RCR) Energy Plant and additional fuel storage.

Brightwater Engineers designed, built and commissioned a 1500m3 capacity Saxlund International push floor bunker. Fully automated, the bunker feeds the 20 MW Easteel Energy Plant with wood waste fuel at a rate of up to 50 m3 per hour.
