July 6 (Renewables Now) - Finnish company Outotec Oyj (HEL:OTE1V) said today it has won an engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract worth about EUR 55 million (USD 64.7m) for a biomass project in Turkey.

Outotec will build a 35-MW biomass power plant near an agricultural area, where disposals from large farms is becoming an environmental concern, it said.

The facility is designed to operate below the European emission limits and will feature Outotec’s proprietary fluidized bed technology. The company noted that the contract does not cover civil works.

Completion is scheduled for 2020.

“In 2016, we delivered and commissioned one of Turkey's first 30 MW power plants based on alternative fuel and are now happy to provide our fluidized bed technology for another green energy project," said Kalle Harkki, head of Outotec's Metals, Energy & Water business.
