Metso to convert boiler for Dalkia

Finnish engineering and technology company Metso has announced that it will convert a pulverised coal boiler to a biomass-fired boiler for energy services provider Dalkia in Łódż, Poland.

Metso’s scope of work also covers boiler island automation.

The conversion of the coal boiler to a biomass boiler will enable Dalkia to contribute to Poland’s energy policy and to supply ’green’ power to the national electric grid and the district heating systems in the city of Łódż.

Commercial operation of the boiler is planned to start in December 2011.
