SWECO to plan new biofuel-fired CHP plant in Finland

November 20, 2007 | Press release

SWECO’ industrial consultants have been awarded a major contract in connection with the construction of a new biofuel-fired Combined Heat and Power (CHP) plant north of Helsinki, Finland.

The CHP plant will be built in Kerava, a city of 30,000 inhabitants some 30 km north of the capital of Helsinki. The plant will be fired with biomass fuels and will combine electricity and thermal production, covering about 75 per cent of district heating requirement in the city of Kerava. The plant is scheduled for completion in the autumn of 2009.

SWECO’s contract is of the EPCM type (Engineering, Procurement, Construction and Management) and gives SWECO’s consultants total responsibility for all planning and design of the plant, from project management and structural engineering to mechanical engineering, piping systems and automation.

The project has been ordered by the Finnish energy company Kerava Lämpövoima Oy and will employ around 40 full-time consultants from SWECO for one year.
