KPA Unicon will supply a 40 MW bio-boiler plant to Adven, an energy and water solutions provider in the Nordic and Baltic countries.
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.”
