The financial details of the contract have not been disclosed.



The new biomass-fired CFB will be owned by A&S Energy, a partnership between renewable power company Aspiravi and wood products manufacturer Spano, which will be responsible for the supply of non-recyclable wood residue to be used as fuel. The electricity produced will be sold to the local grid.



Foster Wheeler will design and supply the steam generator and auxiliary equipment, and commercial operation of the new boiler is scheduled for the autumn of 2010.
