Press release date: June 3, 2014

Metso has been awarded four repeat orders from the CNIM group to supply automation to greenfield plants in France and the UK, thus reaching a record number of 12 orders received from CNIM for similar projects since 2011.

These orders are intended for two greenfield waste-to-energy plants in Battlefield, Shropshire, and in Leeds (UK), and two greenfield biomass-to-energy plants in Estrées-Mons (France) and in Ridham Dock (UK). The CNIM group acts as a contractor in all these projects.

At these plants, Metso will supply an extensive Metso DNA automation system for all process controls and plant information management. The integrated process automation system covers all plant processes from boilers to turbines. High-level reliability is ensured through an integrated and certified safety solution.

Metso's automation solutions play a significant role in managing waste-to-energy plants successfully and help them reach their goals of high performance, as well as safe and reliable operation, with a high degree of integration. Additionally, they provide good information on the process performance.

At biomass-to-energy plants, automation from Metso contributes to maximizing incineration capacity, keeping combustion and steam production stable while allowing high production process availability.

The new waste-to-energy plant in Leeds is owned and will be operated by the Veolia Environmental Services company. It will have an electric output of 11 MW, enough to power 20,000 households. It is designed to process up to 20.5 tons of waste per hour of black bin waste a year, allowing the city to reach the target of recycling more than 60% of its waste. The plant is planned to go on line in 2016.

The Battlefield waste-to-energy plant in Shropshire is owned and will be operated by Veolia Environmental Services as well. The facility is designed to process 45% of the municipal waste produced in the county and generate enough electricity to power 10,000 households. The plant is planned to be operational in 2015.

The new biomass-to-energy plant in Estrées-Mons is owned and will be operated by Nerea, a subsidiary of the French group Akuo Energy. Once on line at the end of 2014, it will have an electric output of 13 MW, powering 25,000 households. The plant is part of France's national green energy program CRE, which aims to reduce carbon dioxide emissions and curb climate change. It will also supply 25 tons of heat per hour to the food industry.

The Ridham Dock combined heat-and-power biomass power plant owned by the German Mannheim energy company (MVV Energie) is located 30 km southeast of London and is designed to have an electrical output of 23 MW. It will use about 172,000 tons of old timber per year to generate almost 188 million kilowatt hours of electricity a year, enough to cover the electricity needs of 60,000 houses. The plant is scheduled to be operational in spring 2015.
