Valmet wins Polish biomass conversion

6 May 2020

Valmet has received an order from Zespól Elektrowni Patnów-Adamów-Konin SA (ZE PAK) to convert a lignite-fired boiler into a biomass-fired boiler at its power plant in Konin, Poland.

Under the €20 million order, Valmet will convert the existing boiler boiler to biomass-firing using bubbling fluidized bed (BFB) technology. Additionally, Valmet will supply a selective non-catalytic reduction (SNCR) solution to lower NOx emissions as well as modernize the plant’s instrumentation and electrification systems.

“The reconstruction of the K-7 boiler is the main element of our transition project from fossil-based energy to renewable energy production,” said Zygmunt Artwik, Vice President, ZE PAK. “Converting the existing boiler from coal into biomass combustion is a very cost-effective way for us to carry out this energy transition. The investment will enable Konin to be the first Polish city that is heated with energy originating exclusively from renewable sources.”

The converted boiler plant will be handed over to the customer in the autumn of 2021.
