Pöyry`s Energy business group has been awarded an engineering contract by UPM for the Schongau mill site in Germany. The order has been booked in the first quarter order book and the parties have agreed not to disclose the value of the assignment.
The contract includes detail engineering for the Balance of Plant (BoP) and the overall plant integration of the main supply packages. The scope of work also comprises technical assistance to the UPM project team in purchasing the main machinery consisting of a gas turbine, heat recovery boiler and steam turbine.
The energy-efficient combined cycle power plant (CCPP) will replace the old plant facility which has operated more than 40 years. With this project UPM continues to invest in efficient energy generation to significantly reduce energy costs as well as to secure the energy supply. The total investment is about EUR 85 million.
Pöyry has extensive experience in building similar resource-efficient energy solutions. Pöyry`s part of the project started in March 2012, and commissioning of the total plant is planned for the end of 2014.
