Metso to supply biomass CHP plant to Estonia

Metso of Finland is to supply Oü Helme Energia with a biomass CHP plant 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 a plant automation system, which will be delivered by Metso's automation business line.
The biomass power plant will utilize bubbling fluidized bed technology and will utilize 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, with the rest sent to the national grid.
The value of the order is in excess of EUR15 million (US$ 19.4 million) and the start-up of the plant is scheduled for the third quarter of 2012.
Oü Helme Energia is a subsidiary of AS Graanul Invest, which is the largest producer of wood pellets in the Baltic region.
