Wärtsilä Corporation has won an order to deliver two BioEnergy wood-fired heating plants to the Finnish/Swedish paper company Stora Enso for installation in Russia. Their combined heating capacity is 24 MWth.
One plant will be at Impilahti in the Russian region of Karelia and the other at Nebolch in the Novgorod region of Russia. The Impilahti will start producing heat at the end of September 2007 and the Nebolch plant in October 2007.
Both plants will burn wood residue in the form of bark from the Stora Enso sawmills. They will provide heating in the form of hot water to the sawmills. The plants offer both economical and ecological benefits; the fuel is sawmill residue, which is also neutral with respect to carbon emissions.
“An important factor in choosing Wärtsilä as our supplier, was Wärtsilä’s long experience of boiler plant deliveries to Russia. Wärtsilä’s BioEnergy plants have the proper certificates and licenses for the Russian market, and we have very good experience from previous cooperation with Wärtsilä as a business partner,” says Tapio Särkkä, Project Manager, Stora Enso Timber Oy Ltd.
There are already seven Wärtsilä BioEnergy boiler plants with a combined heating capacity of 52 MWth owned by Stora Enso in Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania.
