One of the contracts is for a 55 MW thermal energy plant producing synthetic gas from refused-derived-fuel (RDF).

“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. Our customers were looking for comprehensive solutions with guaranteed performance and best return on their investments”, says Robin Lindahl, President of Metals, Energy & Water business area at Outotec.
