New biomass facility ordered for Swedish operations
Technology supplier Metso is to supply a biomass-fired power plant to Vimmerby Energi and Miljö AB for combined heat and power production at Tallholmen, Sweden.
The start-up of the plant is scheduled for the end of 2014 and the order is valued at €25 million ($33 million).
Metso claims the plant will use bubbling fluidised bed combustion technology, with the boiler plant having a thermal output of 26 MWth and an electrical output of 7 MWe. In addition, a flue gas condenser will produce 4.5 MWth of heat.
The plant will be designed to operate unmanned and will use local forest residues as feedstock.
