Valmet to supply boiler plant for district heat production
The new boiler for the Seinäjoen Energia Oy’s Kapernaum heat plant in Seinäjoki will enable the company to increase the use of renewable fuels in its district heat production.
The boiler plant will be handed over to the customer in the autumn.
“We are pleased to start this project. It is a significant step forward in producing cleaner district heat. We will be able to ensure reliable and competitively priced heat for our customers in the future, too,” said Vesa Hätilä, managing director of Seinäjoen Energia.
“This project features notable environmental values and a great significance for the district heat produced in Seinäjoki. Valmet’s delivery combines strong technical know-how with high-quality and swift project management. We appreciate Seinäjoen Energia’s trust in Valmet,” added Kai Janhunen, vice president, energy business unit at Valmet.
Valmet will build the new boiler plant from the foundation upwards all the way from the fuel feed silo to the stack.
The core of the delivery is the Valmet BFB Boiler that utilises bubbling fluidised bed technology and runs on a wide range of biomasses.
Additionally, Valmet’s delivery includes an electrostatic precipitator, a flue gas condensation unit and Valmet DNA Automation System for the entire plant.
The fuel capacity of the boiler plant is 49.5 megawatts (MW). Its maximal district heat capacity is 56.5 MWth with the flue gas condensation unit.
