The power plant will be delivered by the Metso-Wärtsilä joint venture (JV) MW Power and the delivery scope includes a plant automation system delivered by Metso.
The biomass power plant will utilize bubbling fluidized bed (BFB) technology and will use combination of forest residues such bark 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 be partly utilized in the customer's own pellet factory.
Most of the produced electricity will be distributed into the national grid.
