Alstom to equip Swedish power plant

Alstom (Euronext:à‚ ALO) is to supply flue gas cleaning and a heat recovery system at the new $158m Tekniska Verkin waste-to-energy cogeneration plant in Sweden.

The CHP plant is to be run by the state-owned waste management and biogas producer in the city of Linkàƒ¶ping, Sweden and is set to generate 80MW of power.

Alstom’s flue gas cleaning system is being used to achieve EU level emissions. The system includes an Alstom NID semi-dry cleaning step that injects lime and activated carbon to clean flue gas. The flue gas then goes through a scrubber to remove more emissions and recover heat.

The other suppliers on the new power plant are Fincantieri Cantieri Navali Italiani, which will supply the turbine, and German Fisia Babcock Environment, supplying the boiler. The new plant is to be ready for commissioning in 2016.
