The plant engineering company Fisia Babcock Environment has secured two new contracts, together valued at nearly €90m, for waste to energy plants in Finland and Sweden. In Linköping, Sweden, Fisia Babcock will carry out the engineering, construction and supply of a boiler for the new incineration line to be installed at the Gärstadverket waste to energy (wte) plant.
Located between Göteborg and Stockholm, the Gärstadverket facility is to have a total incineration capacity of 260,000 tonnes of waste per year once the new line is commissioned. The expansion project is expected to be completed in 2016.
Fisia Babcock Environment (FBE) is also to build a new wte plant in Tampere, Finland's third-largest city. The Finnish contract covers the supply of the complete boiler system, including firing and ancillary works, said FBE. When completed in 2015, the plant is to have a capacity of 180,000 tonnes per year, according to the plant engineering company. FBE explained that the plant was "specially designed for the incineration of a broad spectrum of waste".
