Valmet wins equipment supply contract for Finnish CHP plant

Valmet is set to deliver three boiler plants and an automation system to Finland’s newly-financed Kilpilahti combined heat and power (CHP) plant in Porvoo, Finland.

The plant is planned to supply power, steam and feed water to a nearby refinery owned by Neste, which also holds a 40% stake in the plant, and a petrochemical plant operated by Borealis, which holds a 20% share.

Valmet said the €100 million ($112 million) order was placed by EPC firm Tecnicas Reunidas, which has been contracted to design and build the turnkey plant.

Included in the delivery will be three boilers, flue gas cleaning systems and a power plant automation system. One of the boilers is a CYMIC boiler based on circulating fluidized bed (CFB) technology (pictured) while two are oil and gas boilers, Valmet said. Each boiler has a fuel capacity of 150 MW.

The flue gas cleaning systems will include baghouse filters and wet scrubbers, while the Valmet DNA distributed control system will cover the entire plant.

The contract also covers installation, training and commissioning.
