Press release 15.11.2023 | BMH Technology
BMH Technology has signed a contract with Kokkolan Energia, Finland, for the delivery and installation of a biomass fuel handling system. BMH Technology’s system will double the power plant’s fuel receiving and the fuel storage capacity will increase even fourfold. Furthermore, the new biomass fuel handling system will help Kokkolan Energia reduce using peat as fuel and increase the use of renewable energy.
The new biomass fuel handling system will replace Kokkolan Energia’s current system and feed fuel to an existing boiler.
With this investment in a biomass fuel handling system we are pleased to to be able to respond to our customers’ demands for renewable energy, says Tommi Korpi, Kokkolan Energia’s acting CEO. “This is a significant investment on our road towards carbon neutral energy production.”
With the new biomass fuel handling system Kokkolan Energia can reduce the use of fossil fuels, says Senior Vice President Ari Nyrökorpi of BMH Technology. “We are pleased to continue our long cooperation with Kokkolan Energia and are eagerly looking forward to delivering this system. We have already delivered several this magnitude biomass fuel handling systems reducing the use of peat and gas.”
The delivery includes a biomass fuel receiving station from where the fuel is conveyed to screening, automatic sampling system and to a silo storage equipped with internal reclaimer and conveyors. BMH also delivers external conveyors which transport the fuel from the silo storage to an existing conveyor leading to the boiler.
The biomass fuel handling system will be delivered, installed and handed over by the end of 2024.
