    BOP (Balance of Plant)

    BOP (Balance of Plant)

    The BOP (Balance of Plant) is composed of all those systems that are part of a pellet plant, which are essential for its correct functioning, but that do not form part of the industrial process or the transformation of wood to pellet.

    Therefore, the BOP is composed of a whole series of very heterogeneous systems, which assist in this process: Urbanization, Civil works and buildings, Various Services and Supplies such as water, electricity, … and other Auxiliary Services such as fire protection or compressed air that are usually included in the chapter called utilities.

    The ADVANTAGE for the client to order an EPC project that includes both process and BOP, is that the client will have a single point of contact who will deliver all the necessary facilities, a complete plant.  With this approach, clients are assuming a lower risk in terms of deadlines, costs, and getting an optimization of the design to include all the disciplines (industrial process, civil engineering) and therefore optimization of the final cost of the plant and of its maintenance and operational costs.

    For example, PRODESA has been involved lately in a project in Jasper (Tennessee, USA).

    The project consisted of Process Improvements through a Revamping of an existing pellet plant, with a current production of 112.000 ton/y.

    In the process of this Revamping, Process Improvements are being carried out:

    • New dry product storage
    • New pellet mills feeding system
    • New automation and control system
    • Plant assistance (on site) for new plant improvements
    • New pellet silos discharging system
    • New truck and train loading systems

    It is included as well all the BOP (500.000 $ approx. total) related to these works: implantation of a closed dry storage, and foundations.

    Prodesa and the Canadian Market Conquest II, British Columbia

    Prodesa and the Canadian Market Conquest II, British Columbia

    Skeena Sawmill, its forestry and woodlands operations are located in British Columbia. The sawmill has a capacity of approximately 200 million board feet (471,947 m3) of annual lumber production. Skeena is one of the major sawmills in British Columbia, and selected PRODESA to Design, Manufacture and Supply a complete capacity wood pellet plant.  Total capacity of this pellet plant will be 96,000 ton/y using wood chips and shavings.

    The client’s key point to make a decision was the specific design and the high performance of the Belt Dryer in extreme environmental conditions.  The selected dryer is a low temperature Belt Dryer producing 12 ton/h.  It uses hot air at 230ºF (110ºC) which comes from two natural gas burners (2x 5’5 MW) for the drying process.

    MAIN BENEFITS of this dryer are low energy consumption, low level emissions, use of low temperature energy, and automated operation with careful drying for optimal quality.
