Biomass power plant in Uruguay to start up in 2015

A planned 50 MW biomass power plant is expected to come online by 2015 in Uruguay, according to BNamericas.

Uruguay’s state power company UTE and pulp mill UPM signed a memorandum of understanding June 12 for the $130 million that will add to the power already supplied by the two companies. UPM reportedly currently provides between 20 MW and 40 MW capacity per day to UTE. The companies also renewed a contract under which UPM supplies surplus generation for another 10 years, the article said.

An additional 400 MW of biomass capacity is planned for Uruguay through 2015.
