By this project the fuel of one existing boiler unit (HVC) will be converted from peat to wood pellets. While other units remain in operation, a new pellets unloading, a silo for storage, a new mill house, new wood dust burners and a SNCR will be installed.

  • white pellets as fuel
  • 132 MW firing capacity
  • Contracts placed
