New bioheat plant coming to Leppävirta
Finland-based technology supplier Metso is to fulfil a biomass-fired heating plant order from energy company Savon Voima Oyj in Leppävirta.
The new plant will help the municipality of Leppävirta reduce its consumption of oil by increasing its district heat generation by 8MW via renewable sources, such as forest residue and peat. The order value for this project was put at around €9 million.
‘We want to be a part in advancing Savon Voima's sustainable projects that use domestic fuel,’ says Metso bioheat plant sales manager Teemu Koskela. ‘We will supply a plant which will reduce the use of fossil fuels and provide an energy efficient solution for district heat production.’
Metso hope the plant will be online before the end of this year.
