Construction of a SEK 3.5 billion cogeneration plant
Last month, it was revealed that ANDRITZ and Peab Anläggning had been awarded contracts as part of Vattenfall’s project to construct a new biomass-fired cogeneration plant in Uppsala.
Vattenfall has been making various investments in the local area to replace peat and oil with renewable biofuels, including the upgrading of their existing plant which is located adjacent to the new facility.
