Saxlund is to build a £2.1M (€3M) biomass handling system at a green energy project in Margam, South Wales.

Commissioned by Danish company Babcock and Wilcox Vølund, the work will involve designing, manufacturing, delivering and commissioning two automatic fuel handling systems. They’ll be used for fuel reception, feeding and mixing in the fuel storage.

The timetable for delivery is September next year for commissioning, with takeover set for 2017.
