The Avedøreværket CHP plant, Wood-Pellet Facility
Gottlieb Paludan Architects (GPA) designed and built the 100.000 m3 wood-pellet facility at the Avedøreværket CHP plant in collaboration with MOE Consulting Engineers. The plant has two units producing electricity and heating for consumers in the Greater Copenhagen area. GPA previously built Unit 2, which is a multi-fuel plant fired primarily with biomass, and was therefore well acquainted with Avedøreværket in advance.
The wood-pellet project includes a silo for storing wood pellets with secondary tunnels and one centrally positioned main tunnel which will be connected to the existing coal tunnel.
It is a concrete silo with traditional conveyor belt loading via the roof of the silo; unloading, on the other hand, is performed with chain scrapers that are underneath the silo in a number of transverse tunnels. The roof is a plate-clad steel construction topped with a roof house. In addition, the silo has a gatehouse, two emergency vents and an electricity building.
