Metso to supply biomass power plant
Oü Helme Energia is a subsidiary of AS Graanul Invest, a private capital-based company dealing with bioenergy and renewable energy production.
MW Power, a joint venture between Metso and Wärtsilä dedicated to providing medium- and small-scale power and heating plant solutions for sustainable energy production, will deliver the plant.
The value of the order is over €15 million and completion is expected by the third quarter of 2012.
The biomass power plant will generate 15MW of heat and 6.4MW of electricity from a combination of spruce bark, chipped logging residues and wood chips or milled peat.
A portion of the power will be used in the customer’s own pellet facility, while the remaining power will be sold to the National Grid.
