The ANDRITZ scope of supply comprises the engineering work, delivery, erection work, and start-up of the fluidized bed boiler, including a flue gas cleaning system with high-dust SCR and auxiliary equipment.

The equipment and technologies supplied by ANDRITZ are essential parts of a high-efficiency biomass power plant for supply of green energy to the national grid. The biomass power plant fired with palm kernel shells and wood pellets will generate around 50 MWel of power, thus approximately 100,000 households can be supplied with clean energy from renewable sources.

ANDRITZ is one of the leading global suppliers of boiler technologies and systems for generating steam and electricity from renewable and fossil fuels, with a large number of very successful references worldwide.
