Metso has secured a €155m contract from Dutch-based Eneco to supply a 49MWe biomass-fired boiler plant in Delfzijl in the Netherlands.
The plant will be contructed by a consortium comprising Areva Renewables, Finnish Metso Power and Dutch Ballast Nedam Industriebouw.
Metso holds about a third of the total value of the contract.
Under the contract, Metso will supply a biomass-fired boiler plant based on circulating fluidised bed technology to be fulled by recycled wood, a flue gas cleaning plant and stack, a feedwater system and a distributed control system.
Upon installation, the new plant will be able to supply energy sufficient to power 120,000 homes in the region.
The new power plant is expected to begin operation by the third quarter of 2013.
