Valmet will deliver boiler conversions and emission reduction solutions for Veolia Group’s Hungarian subsidiary at its power plant in Oroszlány, Hungary. The order includes the conversion of two coal-fired boilers to bubbling fluidized bed combustion to enable the boilers to run mainly on biomass fuel.

Valmet’s rebuild scope includes the main equipment for bubbling fluidized bed combustion, including emission reduction equipment. The delivery includes engineering, erection and commissioning. The converted boilers will be handed over to the customer in the first and second quarters of 2024.

“We are gradually converting our existing coal-fired power plants to run on more environmentally friendly and sustainable fuels. After the recommissioning, the Oroszlány power plant will produce more than 600 GWh of renewable electricity, making up about 1.5 percent of today’s electricity consumption in Hungary,” said György Palkó, CEO of Veolia Energia Magyarország Zrt.
