Biomass boiler equipment to be supplied by Metso

Metso will supply a 100 MWe biomass boiler island and plant automation system to the 100 MW Gainesville Renewable Energy Center (GREC) in Florida.

Metso will supply the boiler island and flue gas cleaning system along with the entire power plant automation system.

The biomass boiler will use bubbling fluidized bed (BFB) technology and use waste wood from logging and mill activity as well as wood waste from clearing, tree trimming and pallets as the main fuel.

GREC has raised $500 million in construction financing. The plant is expected to enter service in 2013.
