Adven, the leading provider of energy and water solutions in the Nordic and Baltic countries and KPA Unicon have signed a contract for the supply of a 30 MW boiler plant to the Naantali harbor area in Western Finland.

The delivery includes 10 MW Unicon Renegrate bio boiler plant and back-up and peak load boilers (2 x 10 MW). The plant will produce steam for Adven’s end customer Finnfeeds Finland Oy, which produces betaine separated from sugar beet-based solutions. Betaine is used in the cosmetics, feed, nutrition and chemical industries. The plant will be completed by the end of 2022.

The plant will be delivered as a turnkey solution to Adven from the foundations upwards. Adven has been responsible for the design of the overall solution and, once completed, will also be responsible for its operation and maintenance. The plant will use renewable wood-based fuels. The new bioplant will reduce Finnfeeds Finland Oy’s annual carbon dioxide emissions by 2000-3000 tonnes.

“I am delighted that our long-term cooperation with Adven will continue and we will work together to reduce CO2 emissions. We believe that our cooperation will be smooth, as in our previous joint projects,” says Pertti Sipola, Sales Manager, KPA Unicon.
