1500m³ Biomass Fuel Storage Bunker

Nelson Pine Industries Ltd, Richmond, Nelson, New Zealand

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 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.
