Ballast Nedam to start construction of 49MW biomass plant in Netherlands

28 Jul 2011

Ballast Nedam, in consortium with Areva Renewables and Metso Power Oy, will commence the construction of a biomass power plant in the port of Delfzijl, Netherlands later this year.

The plant has been commissioned for BioEnergieCentrale Delfzijl.

According to the terms of the €48m contract, the company will supervise the licensing process and the design & construct of the project's civil engineering and structural components.

Upon completion, the Delfzijl biomass plant is expected to generate electricity, sufficient to power 120,000 houses in the region.

The project is scheduled to commence operations in 2013.
