ÅF has won a large contract in Finland for the design and project management
services to a new CHP plant in the city of Oulu in northern Finland. The local
energy utility Oulun Energia chose ÅF as the most competent and competitive
technical consultant for the project through a public procurement process. For
ÅF the contract represents consulting work worth for a couple of millions of
euro.



The CHP plant is a waste-to-energy plant, where power is generated from
incinerating municipal and industrial waste. The project includes construction
of a new waste incinerating boiler, which will be connected to existing turbines
and new waste handling and flue gas treatment plants. The project is implemented
mainly by ÅF Finnish subsidiary with the support of ÅF's international
resources. The project will also give significant sub-consulting opportunities
for the local design companies in the region.



This is the first modern waste to energy CHP plant in North Finland. The CHP
plant is scheduled to be taken into operation in 2012. It will be capable to
convert 120 000 tons per annum waste to 50 MW industrial steam. The steam can
also be used to generate 30 MW power in the turbines or district heat for the
municipality.
