Finnish companies supply biomass CHP plant to Belgium

Finland's Metso Corporation is to supply a biomass power plant for CHP facility being built in the municipality of Ham in the Belgian province of Limburg by 4HamCogen, a subsidiary of Belgian biomass-to-energy project developer 4Energy Invest.

The modular biomass power plant will utilize bubbling fluidized bed (BFB) technology and will use non-contaminated biomass as the main fuel. With the new cogeneration plant, 4HamCogen will feed 8.4 MW of electricity into the distribution grid and will be able to deliver up to 14 MW of heat.

The power plant will be delivered by the Metso-Wärtsilä joint venture MW Power, and the plant automation system by Metso's Automation business line. Start-up of the plant is scheduled for Q2 in 2011.
