Norway-based technology company Cambi has been awarded its largest contract to date.


The NOK350 million (€44.75 million) contract will see Cambi design, install and commission a complete turnkey biogas plant in Nes in Romerike, Oslo, Norway, that will treat 50,000 tonnes a year of food waste.

In addition, the plant will produce approximately 27,000 tonnes a year of biofertiliser for around 100 medium-sized farms.


Also to be built on site is a facility to produce upgraded fuel gas for buses in Oslo. Replacing diesel with upgraded biogas to fuel 135 buses or similar vehicles will reduce fossil CO2 emissions by 10,000 tonnes a year.


The biogas plant is expected to break ground by mid-2011, with completion by the end of 2012.


Cambi will be the main contractor of the whole project, while Norweigan construction company Veidekke will provide all the civil work as a supplier to Cambi.
