KPA Unicon to deliver 40 MW bio-boiler plant in Finland
Under the contract, KPA Unicon will deliver the boiler plant to the Naantali harbour area in western Finland. Delivery includes the 10 MW Unicon Renegrate bio-boiler plant and back-up and peak load boilers (2 x 10 MW).
The facility will use renewable wood-based fuels to produce steam for Adven’s end customer Finnfeeds Finland, which produces betaine separated from sugar beet-based solutions. Betaine is used in the cosmetics, feed, nutrition, and chemical industries.
The plant will be delivered as a turkney solution to Adven from the foundations upwards. Adven has been responsible for the design of the bio-boiler plant and, once completed, will also be responsible for its operation and maintenance. The new bio-plant will reduce Finnfeeds Finland’s annual CO2 emissions by 2,000 to 3,000 tonnes.
Pertti Sipola, sales manager at KPA Unicon, said: “I am delighted that our long-term cooperation with Adven will continue and we will work together to reduce CO2 emissions. We believe that our cooperation will be smooth, as in our previous joint projects.”
