Pellet plants for green energy

A pellet-fired plant presents an environmentally friendly solution to balance peak loads in district heating, to act as a backup plant or to generate process steam. A pellet-fired plant can also be used as a base load plant for district heat production.

Valmet offers turnkey Bioheat RampUp pellet plants, ranging typically from 25 to 100 MWth, for district heating and process industry needs.
