Finland – WtE Plant
Construction of a €112 million WtE plant
Construction is expected to begin on a new waste-to-energy (WtE) plant in Salo towards the end of the month. Steinmüller Babcock Environment has been awarded the contract for the boiler plant.
The facility, located adjacent to the waste processing centre at Korvenmäki, will process up to 120,000 tonnes of municipal and commercial waste each year. It will produce 180-190 GWh of heat and a further 72 GWh of electricity.
Completion is scheduled for June 2021.
