The other plant will be at Nebolch in the Novgorod region of Russia. It will be equipped with two Wärtsilä BioEnergy boiler units in the same building. One will produce 6 MWth and the other 8 MWth.
The Impilahti plant will start producing heat at the end of September and the Nebolch plant in October 2007. Both plants will burn wood residue in the form of bark from the Stora Enso sawmills.
