PRESS RELEASE 12 Jul 2011
Pöyry to design two biofuel-fired CHP plants for Fortum
PÖYRY PLC Press release 12 July 2011 at 2.00 p.m.
Pöyry's Energy business group has been awarded contracts by Fortum for the engineering, procurement and construction management (EPCM) services of two biofuel-fired CHP (combined heat and power) plants to be built in Järvenpää, Finland and Jelgava, Latvia.
The CHP plants will generate electricity and district heat. With the new plants, biofuel will replace use of natural gas and/or fuel oil at the existing plants and thus decreases greenhouse gas emissions from energy production. Commissioning of both plants is scheduled for the year 2013.
The parties have agreed not to disclose the value of the agreements.
