Valmet will deliver a multifuel boiler plant to Veolia Energie in Prerov in the Czech Republic. The new boiler will replace an old coal-fired unit and strengthen Veolia’s strategy to move toward more environmentally friendly production of gas and electricity.
The order was included in Valmet’s orders received of the first quarter this year with the value of this kind of order in the region of €35-40 million.
The boiler plant will be taken over by the customer in January 2023.
“We chose Valmet based on the criteria of public procurement, in other words, on the combination of price and operational costs for 15 years. Valmet has a high number of running references and long experience with boilers. That is why we trust Valmet and already cherish our future relationship,” said Jaromir Novak, head of technical department at Veolia Energie ČR.
“This is yet another great example of how Valmet can support decarbonisation in the energy sector. We will even reuse the existing boiler house to help reduce not only CO2 emissions from energy production but also from constructing the power plant. With flexible use of biomass and waste in all possible mixtures, the plant is fit for the challenging energy transition,” added Jari Niemelä, director of boilers and gasifiers at Valmet.
