Biomass: AREVA delivers power plant to Eneco

Paris, (PresseBox) - AREVA celebrated today the inauguration of the Bio Golden Raand biomass power plant, built jointly by the group with Dutch civil works company Ballast Nedam Industriebouw, and Finnish boiler supplier, Metso Power Oy. This installation, which started operations on November 1, 2013, has been successfully delivered to its customer Eneco, a major Dutch utility.

Located in Delfzijl in the north of the Netherlands, this biomass plant has an installed capacity of 49.9 MW and is fuelled by waste wood from domestic and industry activities. The installation will supply electricity to over 120,000 households and avoid nearly 250,000 tons of CO2 emissions annually.

Patrick Zwinkels, Project Manager of Eneco Bio Golden Raand, said: "We are very proud to introduce Bio Golden Raand in our asset portfolio. The power plant in Delfzijl marks a big step forward for Eneco."

Marc Laur, CEO of AREVA Bioenergy, said: "The facility, which was delivered with full customer satisfaction, demonstrates AREVA's commitment to safety, quality, and the development of its renewable activities."
