RJM wins two new green fuel projects

Thursday 10th January 2019: RJM International announces new business wins across waste-to-energy, alternative coal-to-biomass conversions and biomass-fired plant, confirming its green fuels credentials in this growing sector   

RJM International, the award-winning provider of innovative emissions reduction technology and equipment to the power generation and large combustion plant sectors worldwide, announces today that it has won two new European projects.

Both require RJM to apply its world-class expertise in resolving complex emissions and combustion challenges that can arise when firing biomass or when plants introduce new fuels to their fuel diet.

These new business wins follow on from RJM being awarded the FEED contract in Wales at Uskmouth Power Station by SIMEC Atlantis Energy Limited in November 2018, for the world's first conversion of a coal-fired power plant to run on waste-derived energy pellets.

In the Netherlands, RJM has been appointed by Bio Energie Centrale Cuijk (BECC) to help resolve various combustion issues. This 80MW biomass fluidised bed boiler, firing a mix of fresh wood chips and waste wood generates green electricity for the grid. The initial study has now been widened by BECC into a more extensive project.

RJM has also been appointed by a European power producer to carry out a feasibility study for a coal-to-biomass conversion at one of its large utility plants.  It will focus on evaluating the efficiency and emissions implications as well as the requirements of the Renewable Energy Directive and the Industrial Emissions Directive.

Commenting on these new wins, John Goldring, RJM’s Managing Director said, “As thermal power plants transition to zero-to-low carbon, biomass-derived fuels, they are experiencing a wide range of new combustion and emissions challenges.

“At RJM we have a proven track record of resolving complex combustion challenges across all fuel types and have been building up our capabilities with co-firing and 100% conversion to biomass for over ten years.

“Thanks to the in-depth experience of our engineers and our focus on developing tailor-made, innovative solutions, we are winning work with our clients who are combusting these new alternative green fuels but who also need to maximise their electrical generation, efficiency and reliability whilst complying with the latest emissions regulations.

 “The global trend towards lower carbon, lower emission fuels is picking up pace and as a lead expert in the sector, RJM is well-placed to grow its portfolio of customers worldwide,” he added.


Notes for Editors:
RJM International has completed over 60,000MWe of major combustion and emission control projects at power generators and other large combustion plants in the UK and globally.

A key area of RJM’s new business is on green energy projects and new regions including Asia-Pacific, China, India, South America, Vietnam and the USA, as well as mainland Europe. In 2018, to support this ambitious growth plan, RJM completed the following:

December 2018: Increased headcount over the year by 30% across all functions, with particular emphasis on adding proven biomass combustion and fuel milling expertise.

August 2018:  Appointed SANTI Group, based in Jakarta, to target new opportunities in Indonesia.

May 2018:  Opened a new regional office in the USA at Tulsa, Oklahoma, marking a return to the US market after an absence of 14 years.

February 2018: Opened a new regional office in Singapore to manage new business across Asia-Pacific.
