“The new plant is a milestone for us and the last step in our conversion of district heating to low carbon. With the new facility, we will get rid of natural gas and can offer our customers 100% renewable and recovered energy in our district heating,” said Per-Anders Gustafsson, CEO of Göteborg Energi.

Valmet’s scope will include a 140 MWt bubbling fluidised bed boiler, as well as a flue gas cleaning system and a flue gas condensing system. The primary fuels will include forest residues and recycled wood chips.

Additionally, Valmet will provide a boiler building and piping to connect the new boiler to the existing steam turbine.

Operations and maintenance services including industrial-internet technologies will maximise reliability and optimise performance, says Valmet, thereby ensuring safe and more sustainable production throughout the plant lifecycle.

Göteborg Energi AB is fully owned by the city of Gothenburg.

Besides developing and supplying new solutions within energy production and broadband connections, the company is also “working towards a bigger goal – a sustainable Gothenburg.”
