Metso is to supply Porvoon Energia with a biomass boiler plant for CHP production in the township of Tolkkinen, Finland. The boiler plant will be delivered by the Metso-Wärtsilä joint venture MW Power.
The biomass boiler plant will utilize bubbling fluidized bed (BFB) technology and will use combination of wood chips, bark and sawdust as the main fuel source.
The plant will produce 38 MW of district heat (DH) to Porvoo area and 12 MW of electricity for the national grid.

The value of the order is below EUR15 million (US$21 million) and the plant is scheduled to be ready during the first quarter of 2013.

This order comes in the wake of a recent award from Oü Helme Energia for a biomass CHP plant for the Estonian township of Helme.
