Biomass boiler to be delivered for energy project

A biomass boiler by Metso will be supplied for a biomass-fueled cogeneration power plant in Wisconsin

09/23/2011


Metso will supply a biomass boiler for the We Energies/Domtar Biomass Energy Project owned by We Energies. The biomass boiler is part of a major investment to build a new biomass-fueled cogeneration power plant which will be located at the Domtar Mill in Rothschild, Wisconsin, USA. 

The biomass boiler plant will utilize circulating fluidized bed (CFB) technology and will use waste wood from logging and mill activity, tree trimming and sawdust as the main fuel. The plant will produce approximately 50 megawatts of renewable electric power and provide process steam to the mill. The commercial operation of the plant is scheduled for 2013.
