Pöyry is one of the leading consultants in Europe for the development and implementation of bioenergy projects, with a significant track record in the successful engineering of biomass power and CHP plants, energy-from-waste (EfW) and waste treatment processes.
Pöyry covers the entire bioenergy marketing and utilisation value chain, using state-of-the-art methods and technologies in the areas of energy, wood/biomass/waste fuel supply and heat and power generation. Our services cover all stages of project development, from pre-feasibility and feasibility assessments, environmental evaluations and due diligence work to project design, project management and implementation.
Pöyry has gained extensive experience in Bio-Renewables, including energy-from-waste (EfW) and biomass, over many decades as owner’s engineer for EPC turnkey solutions as well as for EPCM multi-contract solutions in the UK and internationally. The latter tends to require a much more ‘hands-on’ and less supervisory approach than as owner’s engineer for EPC solutions, since with the EPCM model Pöyry carries the overall engineering, project and construction management responsibility and this requires a deeper understanding and capability.
This has led Pöyry to develop specialist project and construction management skills and also the specialist engineering skills that enable the definition of individual plant packages (e.g. fuel handling, boiler, turbine, etc.) and performance guarantees and the detailed design of the balance of plant systems (e.g. civil, electrical, automation) that are needed to bring everything together.
Range of Technical Know-How
Pöyry is very experienced in designing bioenergy plants for industrial and utility cogeneration applications, having carried out the engineering for numerous bioenergy CHP plants based on a range of conventional and advanced technologies (BFB, CFB, grate, pulverised fuel, etc.) and fuel types.
Pöyry is able to deal with the whole bioenergy chain from waste collection or biomass harvesting to combustion and energy supply. We are highly experienced in the utilisation of all types of bioenergy from forestry residues and energy crops to forest industry by-products (e.g. sludge and bark) and further to industrial wood wastes, municipal wastes and refuse derived / solid recovered fuels (i.e. RDF and SRF).
Pöyry’s success is based on a deep understanding of its clients’ core business processes and a mastery of the entire lifecycle of an investment project. Networking and co-operation through its Global Competence Lines enables its teams to fulfil its clients’ objectives by exploiting Pöyry’s corporate experience, individual talents and shared skills. Together with its project oriented business approach, Pöyry can deliver a full range of leading-edge solutions and services to its clients, globally and locally.
Pöyry’s project services as technical advisor (TA), owner’s engineer (OE), lenders’ engineer (LE) and contractor’s engineer (CE) cover all stages of development from pre-feasibility and feasibility assessments, environmental evaluations and due diligence work to project design, project management and implementation.
