ABB’s pioneering technology solutions will support the mill to maximize its bioenergy production and thus, increase the share of renewable energy in Finland by more than two percent. Using over 1,000 of the most advanced energy efficient motors and state-of-the-art power systems the mill will produce 2.4 times more electricity than it consumes. The mill is designed to produce 1.8 terawatt hours of energy annually, representing 2.5 percent of the electricity produced in Finland today. The orders are worth over $33 million, the majority has been booked in the last half of 2015.

“We have long experience of good cooperation with ABB. Their wide product portfolio, project expertise and high degree of domestic content affected most our decision”, said Timo Merikallio, project director of Metsä Group’s bioproduct mill.

“We are extremely happy that we can participate in the largest investment in history of the Finnish forest sector with our expertise and products,” says Tauno Heinola, Country Manager Director of ABB in Finland. “Our products will be part of ensuring the mills’ high availability, reliability and efficient production, as well as their energy efficiency, fully in line with our company`s Next Level strategy.”
