Helsinki, Finland, 24 January 2011 -- Metso will supply Porvoon Energia with a biomass boiler plant for combined heat and power production (CHP) in the township of Tolkkinen, Finland. The boiler plant will be delivered by the Metso-Wärtsilä joint venture MW Power. The value of the order is below EUR 15 million and the order is included in Energy and Environmental Technology’s fourth quarter 2010 orders received. The plant is scheduled to be ready during the first quarter of 2013.

The biomass boiler plant will use bubbling fluidized bed (BFB) technology and will use a combination of wood chips, bark, and saw dust as the main fuel source. The plant will produce 38 MW of district heat to Porvoo area and 12 MW of electricity for the national grid.

The company strives to use the broadest possible range of biomass based fuels for its electricity and heat generation. The company already produces about 70% of its electricity in green power. The new power plant will be built on the same site with the current power plant.
