Austria's AE&E to build EUR60m cogeneration plant in Finland

18 November 2009 - Austria's AE&E Group has secured an order for the construction of a waste to energy cogeneration plant in Vaasa, Finland.

The EUR60m ($90m) contract, awarded to AE&E's Swiss subsidiary Von Roll Inova by Westenergy Oy, comprises the furnace and steam generator, as well as the ancillary systems for the entire plant.

The groundbreaking ceremony for the Vaasa plant will take place in November 2009, and it will begin supplying district heating in 2013. The facility will use AE&E technology to process waste from around 60 municipalities in western Finland with over 400 000 inhabitants in an environmentally-friendly manner. It will be a highly energy efficient cogeneration plant.

The plant design is based on Von Roll Inova's well-proven combustion technology. The contract is for the engineering, design and supply of the process technology, from the combustion and steam generation systems through to the water/steam cycle, including support and ancillary systems for the entire facility.

The thermal waste treatment plant will process 150 000 tonnes of domestic and commercial waste per year and generate 13 MW of electricity and 40 MW of district heat, serving over 30,000 households. The contract also contains an option for the construction of a second, identical waste treatment train.
