OUTOTEC OYJ PRESS RELEASE DECEMBER 4, 2015 at 11:00 AM
Outotec to deliver two further waste-to-energy plants with operation and maintenance services in the UK
Outotec has been awarded two further contracts for the design and delivery of waste-to-energy plants to be built in the United Kingdom. Outotec has also made 12-year operation contracts for these two plants. Approximately EUR 43 million has been booked in Outotec's 2015 fourth quarter order intake related to these contracts. Within a year Outotec has won already seven waste-to-energy or renewable energy plant orders in the UK.
Outotec's scope of delivery for both plants covers the license for Outotec fluidized bed advanced staged gasification technology, engineering and delivery of the main process equipment for 10 MW (net) energy as well as advisory services for installation, commissioning and start-up. Once fully operational in 2017, both plants will consume annually about 80,000 tonnes of processed waste wood and/or refuse-derived fuel.
Outotec also provides comprehensive operation and maintenance services for both plants. After two years' preliminary work including the design process, Outotec's personnel will operate the plants for ten years.
"As our aim is to deliver sustainable life-cycle solutions to our customers, we are extremely pleased to be involved in all seven waste-to-energy or renewable energy projects in the UK, and thus support circular economy and efficient use of resources. Besides delivering sustainable technology we provide long-term care of the plant, so that the customers will get the best return on their investments", says Robin Lindahl, President of Metals, Energy & Water business area at Outotec.
