Sollentuna Energi confirms participation in Fortum's new waste-fired combined heat and power plant in Sweden

Fortum and the municipal energy company Sollentuna Energi have signed a final agreement according to which Sollentuna Energi will participate with a 15%-share in Fortum's new waste-fired combined heat and power plant (CHP) unit, Brista 2, that is being built in the Stockholm area in Sweden. The total estimated value of the investment is approximately EUR 200 million, of which Fortum will carry 85% and Sollentuna Energi 15%.

The new unit will be able to process a total of 240,000 tons of household and industrial waste per year. According to the plan, Brista 2 will be ready for production in 2013 and its capacity will be 60 MW heat and 20 MW electricity, corresponding to the consumption of around 40,000 mid-sized Swedish households. Once completed, the new CHP unit will secure the long-term district heating supply for the Sollentuna municipality.
