The order from Cyprus includes five anaerobic combustion installations that can jointly produce some 43.8 GWh a year. The other 10 the contracted systems are for customers in Greece.

Near the end of May, Sino Fibre wrapped up the acquisition of a 60% stake in Dalian Xinbao Biomass for USD 50.75 million in stock.
