The constructed plant will be fuelled purely with clean biomass and thus is currently one the largest facilities of this type in the world. Commissioning is planned for the beginning of 2016.
Vaclav Lang, the business manager for Doosan Škoda Power in Scandinavia said about the success: „ in this prestigious tender, Doosan Škoda Power won over companies like Siemens, Alstom, MAN, mainly thanks to the technical parameters and flexible approach to the modelling of operational conditions to meet customer’s requirements. Another key factor leading to the success was resolution of requirements by the network operator to connect to the Swedish transmission system, where we successfully joined forces with another Czech company, Energoprojekt. I believe that this contract will intensify our cooperation with Fortune in the Nordic countries and that we will get another contract from them in the future“.
