Andritz Biomass Plant Opened in Sweden
The operation of Andritz' third biomass power plant in Sweden has been successfully transferred to its owner, Bollnäs Energi, during a celebration on 25 May 2012.
Following a short engineering and construction time of only two years, the Austrian engineering company Andritz Energy & Environment has successfully transferred operation of its new biomass power plant in Bollnäs to the local energy company Bollnäs Energi. The plant "Säverstaverket" with a maximum output of 60 MW has been in operation since last winter already and is dedicated to supply the city of Bollnäs with heat and power.
Barbro Holmberg, governor of Gävleborgs län, inaugurated the environmentally friendly plant during an opening ceremony on 25 May 2012. Besides Andritz, the Austrian companies Kresta Anlagenbau and M.U.T. have as well supplied components to the plant. Similar plants have been built before by Andritz in Umeå and Söderhamn.
