May 29 (Renewables Now) - Fortum Oyj (HEL:FORTUM) will provide low-NOx combustion technology for the 128-MW co-fired power plant, using peat and biomass as fuel, in Edenderry, Ireland.

The Finnish energy company said today it has signed agreement with the owner of the plant, Bord na Mona, for the project, which covers process design, commissioning and implementation of the combustion technology and is due to be finalised by the end of 2018.

Kari Lahti, head of performance at Fortum eNext, said the technology will help the plant improve operations and reduce emissions. "With our support the Edenderry power plant can continue to meet stronger environmental regulations," Lahti added.
