Technip bags biomass-to-liquid plant contract in Finland

PARIS, FRANCE: Technip was awarded by Forest BtL Oy a contract, worth approximately €5 million, for the front-end engineering and design (FEED) of a new second generation biomass-to-liquid (BTL) plant to be built on Ajos island, Finland. This plant will produce approximately 140,000 tonne of biodiesel and naphtha from wood and by-products from the wood-processing industry. This feedstock has many advantages as it is not used for human food, it does not jeopardize the existing local biomass usage and has a low CO2 footprint.

Technip will develop the process design package of the hydrogen production unit of the plant, based on its steam reformer proprietary technology, and will prepare the FEED for the hydrogen production, Fischer-Tropsch synthesis and refining units. Technip’s operating centre in Lyon, France, together with the Group’s hydrogen technology centre in Zoetermeer, The Netherlands will execute the contract, which is scheduled to be completed in the first semester of 2014.
