Valmet will supply a biomass plant to Göteborg Energi AB in Gothenburg, Sweden. Göteborg Energi is building a new plant to produce energy and district heat from renewable and recovered sources by 2025. The order will be included in Valmet’s orders received of the fourth quarter of 2023. The value of the order will not be disclosed.
“The new plant is a milestone for us and the last step in our conversion of district heating,” said Per-Anders Gustafsson, CEO of Göteborg Energi. “With the new facility, we will get rid of natural gas and can offer our customers 100% renewable and recovered energy in our district heating. We look forward to cooperating with Valmet in this key project.”
“We are very proud to continue our long and close co-operation with Göteborg Energi,” said Antti Laaksonlaita, director, energy plant solutions, Valmet. “The plant itself will certainly be a state-of-the-art showcase of how sustainable resources can be turned into energy with the highest efficiency. It is great to work together with Göteborg Energi and take its operations forward.”
Valmet’s delivery will include a 140MWth Valmet BFB Boiler plant utilising bubbling fluidised bed technology as well as a flue gas cleaning system and a flue gas condensing system. The primary fuels will include forest residues and recycled wood chips. Start-up of the plant is scheduled for 2025.
Additionally, Valmet will deliver a boiler building and piping to connect the new boiler to the existing steam turbine. Operations and maintenance services including Valmet Industrial Internet solutions will maximise reliability and optimise performance, thereby ensuring safe and more sustainable production throughout the plant lifecycle.
