Helsinki, Finland, 05 January 2011 -- Metso will supply Oü Helme Energia with a biomass power plant for combined heat and power production in the township of Helme in Estonia. The power plant will be delivered by the Metso-Wärtsilä joint venture MW Power. The delivery scope includes the plant automation system, which will be delivered by Metso’s Automation business line. The value of the order is more than EUR 15 million and the order is included in Energy and Environmental Technology’s fourth quarter 2010 orders received. The start-up of the plant is scheduled for the third quarter of 2012.

The biomass power plant will use bubbling fluidized bed technology and will use a combination of spruce bark, chipped logging residues, and wood chips or milled peat as the main fuels. The plant will produce 15 MW of heat and 6.4 MW of electricity, which will partly be used in the customer’s own pellet factory and the rest will be distributed into national grid.

Oü Helme Energia is a subsidiary of AS Graanul Invest, which is a private capital based company dealing with bioenergy and renewable energy production. AS Graanul Invest is the biggest producer of pellets in the Baltics and with its high production volumes counts among the top five European producers.
