Metso will supply a biomass-fired heating plant for district heating production to Elenia Lampio in Turenki in Finland.
Metso´s turnkey delivery will include process equipment, buildings and installation work. The plant will have a heat output of 10 MW and will produce hot water for the district heating network of Turenki. The plant will be fired by locally sourced wood-based biomass, such as forest residue and optional also peat.
“The new biomass-fired heating plant is in line with our strategy to increase the share of renewable fuels in our district heat production. The plant will significantly lower the volume of CO2 emissions in our heat generation, which further minimizes the environmental footprint of district heat,” says Elenia Lämpö´s CEO Matti Tynjälä.
The advanced BioGrate combustion technology being used at the site enables a wide selection of fuels, low internal consumption and highly flexible adjustability.
The heating plant is scheduled to go on-stream in the early winter of 2014. The value of the order will not be disclosed.
