Metso to supply biomass boiler island to GREC

Finnish technology company Metso will supply a 100MWe biomass boiler island and plant automation system to the Gainesville Renewable Energy Center (GREC) in Gainesville, Florida, US.

GREC has raised almost $500m (£312.8m) in construction financing, of which Metso’s delivery represents more than 25 per cent.

The new power plant installation will supply the city-owned utility of Gainesville Regional Utilities with a firm source of renewable electric power under the terms of a 30-year power purchase agreement.
