Swedish CHP plant to benefit from Metso biofuel equipment

Jonkoping Energi’s combined heat and power plant in Torsvik, Sweden is to receive a new 100 MW biofuel-fired boiler, with Metso the chosen supplier.

The Swedish firm is expanding its CHP plant and the new unit will serve as a mid-load unit to meet the district heating and electric power needs of the Jonkoping municipality.

The new systems will enable replacing use of refined bio-fuels with use of primary biomass fuels, with the new boiler utilizing bubbling fluidized bed technology (BFB).

This entails the use of wood chips, and Metso's solution will offer considerable cost-efficiency benefits for the overall district heating and electricity supply of the municipality.

The expanded CHP plant will meet the needs of 17,000 single-family homes and is set to be commissioned during Autumn of 2014.
