Pöyry Oyj: Pöyry awarded EPCM services assignment by Millar Western for
bioenergy project at Whitecourt pulp mill in Alberta, Canada
PÖYRY PLC Press release 21 July 2014 at 10 am (EEST).
Millar Western Forest Products Ltd. has awarded Pöyry with the assignment for
EPCM (Engineering, Procurement and Construction Management) services for an
anaerobic bioenergy project at its Whitecourt pulp mill in Alberta, Canada.
The project involves integration of anaerobic hybrid digesters into the pulp
mill's existing aerobic effluent treatment system. Recovered organic material
will be converted to biogas, used to fuel two reciprocating engines that will
produce up to 6 megawatts of renewable green power for use by the mill itself.
Recovered heat of engine exhaust gas will be used in pulp drying to reduce the
use of natural gas.
Pöyry's scope of work comprises typical EPCM services such as project
management and scheduling, overall engineering management and detail design
services, procurement and contract administration, cost control, construction
management and co-ordination of the commissioning activities. The planned
startup of the plant is August 2015.
"This project is a good example of utilising innovative technology in a smart
way to convert organic waste material to renewable energy. It is also an
important EPCM reference for Pöyry in North America" says Ari Asikainen,
President of Pöyry's Regional Operations North America.
The value of the order is not disclosed. The order will be recognised within
the Regional Operations Business Line order stock in Q3/2014.
