Finland’s Valmet, a renowned developer and supplier of process technologies, automation, and services for energy industries, announced on Tuesday that it will be providing a biomass plant to Göteborg Energi AB in Sweden. Göteborg Energi, a fully-owned energy company by the city of Gothenburg, is currently working on constructing a new plant that aims to generate electricity and district heat from renewable and recovered sources by 2025.
Sustainable Energy Solution
Valmet’s delivery to Göteborg Energi includes a cutting-edge 140-megawatt thermal bioheat bubbling fluidized bed boiler plant along with efficient flue gas cleaning and condensing systems. The primary fuels used in the plant will be forest residues and recycled wood chips, ensuring a sustainable energy solution.
The start-up of the new plant is scheduled for 2025 and stands as a significant milestone for Göteborg Energi. With the completion of this facility, the company will eliminate natural gas from its district heating operations. As a result, Göteborg Energi will be able to provide its customers with 100% renewable and recovered energy in their district heating systems. Per-Anders Gustafsson, CEO of Göteborg Energi, expresses his enthusiasm regarding this achievement.
This exciting collaboration between Valmet and Göteborg Energi represents a significant step toward establishing an eco-friendly and sustainable approach to energy production. By harnessing renewable sources and advanced technology, the biomass plant will play a crucial role in reducing carbon emissions and meeting the growing demand for greener energy solutions.
