July 5 (Renewables Now) - Finnish consulting and engineering firm Poyry Plc (HEL:POY1V) said today it has won an engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract for a 25-MW biomass project in the Philippines.

Local firm North Negros Biopower Inc has contracted Poyry to design, build, commission and test the biomass power plant in Northern Negros. Equipment supply is also covered in the contract. The facility will use sugar cane residuals as fuel.

Poyry said that the deal will be recognised in the first-half order stock of its energy business unit. However, it did not disclose the value of the contract.

In March, Poyry was awarded a contract to build a 20.6-MW net biomass power plant project in Songkla, southern Thailand, which is slated to begin commercial operations in March 2020.
