According to a statement, the delivery includes a 10 MW Unicon Renegrate bio boiler plant and backup and peak load boilers (2 x 10 MW). The plant will use renewable wood-based fuels.

The plant will produce process steam for Adven’s end customer Finnfeeds Finland Oy in Naantali harbor, which produces betaine separated from sugar beet-based solutions.

Betaine is used in the cosmetics, feed, nutrition, and chemical industries. To be completed by the end of 2022, the new bioheat plant is expected to reduce Finnfeeds Finland’s annual carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions by 2 000 – 3 000 tonnes.

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 (O&M).

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, said Pertti Sipola, Sales Manager, KPA Unicon.
