The use of wood fuels has increased rapidly during last years in the municipal heating and power plants and in the boilers of forest industry. The use of forest chips, particularly logging residues will increase in the future. The fluidised-bed boilers enable a far more versatile fuel variety than before. The main problems in co-firing of biofuels are the technical limitations in the fuel receiving and handling of wood fuels at the plants. Normally the handling and feeding lines are designed for one fuel type, in the most cases in Finland for the peat fuels. The flow and the other physical properties of peat and wood fuels are very different. The aims of this project is to develop for the power plants the receiving, handling, storing and feeding systems, which make possible the increase of use share and the intensification of delivery for different wood fuels. Case objects are used the receiving, handling and feeding systems of two power plants, Toppila Power Plant in Oulu and Naistenlahti Power Plant in Tampere.
