Valmet Oyj’s press release on September 2, 2019 at 11:00 a.m. EET

Valmet will supply a biomass-fired boiler and a flue gas treatment plant to BS Energy's combined heat and power (CHP) plant in Braunschweig, Germany. The order was included in Valmet's orders received of the second quarter 2019. The total value of the order is around EUR 50 million.

The boiler with its auxiliary equipment will be part of BS Energy’s energy production strategy 2030. The primary target of the investment is to replace the coal-fired boiler, which will be removed from production in 2022. In addition, the new biomass-fired CHP plant will support BS Energy's objective of environmentally friendly and carbon-neutral production, as it will serve as a base-load unit to meet the district heating and electric power needs of the Braunschweig municipality.

"Valmet convinced us with their offer: we will get a particularly efficient and flexible boiler and with it, the benefits of expertise from world-wide reference projects," says Paul Anfang, Deputy Chairman of the Board of BS Energy.

"We are very proud to have been selected as the technology partner to this sustainable energy project and we are looking forward to work in close cooperation with BS Energy. Valmet’s circulating fluidized bed technology provides reliable operation for waste wood and various other challenging biomass fuels. This plant will fulfill future environmental demands with low emission levels and high efficiency on electrical and district heating production," says Kai Janhunen, Vice President of Valmet's Energy business unit.

The biomass-fired CHP plant will produce approximately 20 megawatts of electricity and 60 megawatts thermal of district heat. The takeover of the biomass-fired CHP plant is scheduled for early 2022.
