Estimated to begin operations in 2014, the €17m biomass plant is designed for combined heat and power production in Värnamo in Sweden.

Scope of the contract involves a complete power plant, including installation, training and commissioning.

With 13.4MW thermal output for district heating and 3.6MW electrical output, the plant will utilize domestic forest residues such as bark and wood chips as fuel.

Värnamo Energi chairman Gunnar Crona noted that this is a key investment in Värnamo’s future and the environment.

"After this investment 100 % of the area’s district heating will be produced with biomass," added Crona.

"In addition, we will produce approximately 20 GWh of electricity annually, which means a doubling of locally produced green electricity."
