Finnish Outotec has gained technology and service contracts by different renewable energy producers in the UK and Canada. The total value of the orders is approximately 55 million euros.

Outotec delivers a thermal energy plant producing synthetic gas from refused-derived-fuel (RDF) and two other plants which use gasification technology with waste heat recovery and gas cleaning trains to produce steam from RDF and waste wood for electric energy. In addition to engineering and technology licenses, Outotec will deliver the main process equipment as well as advisory services for installation, commissioning and start-up of the plants.

For one of the customers, Outotec also provides comprehensive operation and maintenance services for the entire energy plant. After two years’ preliminary work including the design process, Outotec’s personnel will operate and maintain the plant for 10 years on a turnkey basis.

“Our target is to deliver sustainable technology and life-cycle solutions to our customers. We are extremely pleased with our strong involvement in renewable energy projects in the UK, where we have already four projects under construction. For two of these plants, we have also made long-term operation and maintenance contracts,” says Robin Lindahl, president of Metals, Energy & Water business area at Outotec.
