Metso to convert Polish coal-fired plant to biomass boiler

Finland-based Metso, which supplies process machinery and systems, will convert a coal-fired boiler to a biomass-fired boiler for Elektrociepłownia Tychy in southern Poland.

The total value of the order is approximately €20m (£17.7m).

The conversion of the coal-fired boiler to a biomass boiler is part of EC Tychy’s production capacity reconstruction programme.

It focuses on the necessity to increase the share of renewable energy production and to adapt to the new, sharp emission requirements of the EU that will come into force 2016.
