Metso supplies biomass CHP plant to Dalkia in France

One of the biggest biomass CHP plants in Western Europe, delivered by Metso, has been commissioned and is running successfully for operator Dalkia in Facture, southwest France.
Using mainly bark and forest residues as fuel, the plant produces 50 MW of electricity, mainly for export to the national grid, and 74 MW of process steam for Smurfit Kappa's paper mill.
The French delivery from Metso included the boiler, flue gas cleaning and fuel handling systems, as well as complete automation of the power plant, which ensures, among other things, that the customer benefits from compatible reporting and communication.
Centralizing the process equipment required for biomass handling with the same supplier reduces the likelihood of delays during construction and ensures that all equipment is seamlessly compatible, says Metso.
