Valmet has been selected in a public procurement process to deliver a 50 MW pellet-fired heating plant to Göteborg Energi AB to be built at Mölndal Energi's Riskulla site in the municipality of Mölndal, Sweden.

The order is included in Valmet's orders received of the second quarter 2024. The value of the order will not be disclosed. The pellet plant will be started up in late 2026.

The plant will be integrated into the existing district heating plant and operated by Mölndal Energi. The new boiler plant will meet the need for more renewable district heating in the southern part of Göteborg Energi's district heating network and optimize district heat production in the Mölndal/Gothenburg region.

Valmet's turnkey delivery to the Riskulla plant will include a boiler with a fuel receiving pocket, pellet storage as well as milling and wood dust dosing to the boiler. Valmet will also supply a flue gas cleaning system consisting of a Valmet Bag House Filter and a Valmet Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) system. Spare parts are included in the delivery.
