Wood Chips

The Automated Truck & Train Sampling System (ATTSS) was installed due to Ørsted’s wish to replace power and heat production from coal with wood chips from sustainable sources.

The ATTSS was a complete turn-key delivery and took less than 1 1/2 year to complete.

Asnæs Power Station used to be Denmark’s largest coal-fired power plant burning up to 13,000 tons of coal per day.

By converting from coal to biomass, 800,000 tons of CO2 emissions have been saved each year.

25,000 and 37,000 households now receive green power and heat from the biomass unit and process steam is being used at the near-by production sites of some of the largest Danish pharmaceutical companies.

The new biomass unit uses sustainable wood chips from Danish Forests transported by trucks and then sampled at the M&W JAWO truck sampling unit.

In addition, the biomass unit uses wood chips arriving by ship which are also sampled.

The system included: Steel structure and platforms, small sampling house, sampling wagon on gantry structure, sampling head/probe, activation panel, randomizer and light generation system, camera monitoring and detection system, sampling receiver (hopper) and control cabinet/PLC including full installation.

The system was the 3rd automated (out of 4) truck sampling system installed in Denmark.
In addition, three have been installed in Sweden.
