Denmark's Helsingør Kraftvarmeværk A/S opts for LAB flue gas treatment for its biomass power plant 
Whilst the city of Helsingør (Elsinore) is renowned as the inspiration for Shakespeare's tragedy, Hamlet, it is also well known for the attention paid by industrialists and energy producers to controlling their greenhouse gas emissions.

Helsingør Kraftvarmeværk A/S is a major player in the supply of utilities (electricity, district heating and water) and energy recovery from waste.

The contract won by LAB is part of the plan to change the Helsingør power plant over to an alternative fuel. Currently running on gas, the plant is being converted to biomass in order to meet the energy and environmental performance targets for Helsingør Kraftvarmeværk A/S, in particular the reduction in CO2 emissions.

LAB is charged with the design, engineering, supply, installation and commissioning of a combined flue gas treatment system, namely a SecoLAB® dry process followed by an installation combining flue gas condensation and humidification of combustion air.

The Helsingør power plant will therefore soon become a combined heat and electricity generator using one and the same fuel, biomass. The plant will have an electrical capacity of 16 MW and a thermal capacity of 58,5 MW on the urban heating grid, 15 MW of which will be derived from flue gas condensation. Commissioning is planned for winter 2018-2019.
It should be noted that this contract reaffirms the confidence that this client's parent company has already placed in LAB. In fact, LAB has just started up the flue gas treatment installation with condensation system for the new energy recovery from waste line at the Nordforbrænding plant in Hørsholm (10 tonnes/hour of household waste) for its client Norfors, also a shareholder in Helsingør Kraftvarmeværk.

LAB, which offers a complete range of flue gas treatment processes, uses all types of biomass fuel: domestic wood, wood-chips, bagasse and cereal straw.

About Helsingør Kraftvarmeværk A/S

The company is jointly owned by I/S Norfors, the authority delegated by five municipalities in North Zealand (Allerød, Fredensborg, Elsinore, Hørsholm and Rudersdal) to manage their municipal waste, and Supply Elsinore (Forsyning Helsingør A/S), an electricity, water and district heating supplier.

Six Decades of Industry Excellence

Headquartered in Europe and operating worldwide, LAB first started in the exhaust gas cleaning (EGC) industry in 1953 and has been paving the way ever since with the most advanced, integrated technologies. The first EGC installed on board the SS France dates back to 1961 with the original CycloLAB™ dedusting unit, in the past six decades we have introduced DeepBlueLAB™ and developed more than 50 EGC patents.

Comprehensive Scrubber Systems

In focusing on gas and water de-pollution systems for the marine applications of ship owners and shipyards, LAB has the technical know-how to create reliable, long-lasting systems. Our scrubbers meet all applicable compliance requirements while still remaining cost-effective.


Exhaust gas cleaning systems are fully automatic and only require standard maintenance. Compared to other scrubbers, LAB’s are the most long-lasting with a life expectancy of 20+ years by using particular compound materials.

Return of Experience

Our exhaust gas cleaning systems are fully operational since many years, the first marine scrubber since 2015. We have the experience of continuous operation of our scrubbers in scheduled daily duty and can offer Value-Added proprietary Technologies :

  • No visible plume with LAB’s special DePlume™ Technology
  • Highest performance in SO2 cleaning efficiency
  • Extensive cleaning of the waste/wash water from residues (sud, tar, particulate, hydrocarbonates)
  • Minimized weight handicap
  • Reduced power consumption
  • Minimized additive consumption
  • Minimized emissions to water and air
  • Modular design to adopt any engine constellation
  • Modular design to suit all sizes of engines
  • Inline or Offline constellation is possible to match any vessel requirement
  • Open loop, closed loop, zero discharge and hybrid Technologies available

LAB is pleased to announce the official start of its contract for the design, engineering, supply, erection & commissioning of the flue gas treatment and the flue gas condensation plants for the HOFOR Energiproduktion BIO4 facility in Denmark.
The BIO4 facility is being developped as part of the conversion of the Amagervaerket combined heat and power (CHP) plant, and will replace an aging coal-fired line of the plant with an entirely new one processing only woodchips with a capacity of about 500 MW fuel input, representing a total of 1.2 million tons of woodchips per year.
The flue gas treatment plant is designed for a nominal flow of 825'000 Nm3/h. It is composed of :

- a LAB dry SECOLAB®
- a condensation unit to DH combined to combustion air humidification (biggest flue gas condensing plant in Europe)
- a performing condensate water treatment for boiler feed water production.

The start of the works on site for LAB is scheduled for September 2017.

The facility will further enhance LAB's references in Copenhagen area with the Amager Bakke waste-to-energy plant, 2 lines equipped with LAB flue gas cleaning and currently under commissioning, which is located less than 500 meters from HOFOR CHP plant.



We have the pleasure to welcome Denis BAUER as new Managing Director of LAB for the offices of Lyon, Stuttgart and La Seyne sur Mer.

Denis is taking over from Thomas Feilenreiter who will ensure from now on the Managing Director’s Position of «Waste & Energy Management Solutions» (WEMS) Business Unit of CNIM. Thomas will remain involved in LAB activities as Chairman of the Board.

Denis, who was acting as Managing Director for Areva Renewables in India, has a huge experience of Environment and he will assure the continuity of LAB know-how and excellence as well as continue its geographical expansion and development of new markets.
