Finnish firm builds biomass power plants in Poland

Following plans to open the most up to date coal and biomass power plant in the city of Czestochowa, Poland, Finland-based energy company Fortum looks set to continue constructing facilities within the nation.

In addition to the €130 million power plant with a generation capacity of 120MW of heat and 64MW of electricity, Fortum is also planning to build a combustion plant and a biomass power plant in the western city of Wroclaw.

And also in the pipeline for Poland is the construction of a garbage incinerator. 12 cities applied to be home to the incinerator but only one will be awarded the contract.

Besides producing energy from biomass, Fortum owns two nuclear plants in Finland and is the shareholder of two more nuclear plants in Sweden. The company is now keen to enter into this market in Poland.
