GDF Suez begins commercial operation of 200 MW biomass power plant in Poland

ZUG, SWITZERLAND, Jan. 8, 2013 (Business Wire) - Foster Wheeler AG announced today that the GDF Suez power plant located in Polaniec, Poland, is now in commercial operation, delivering over 200 MWe of electricity to the country's electricity grid solely from biomass.

The plant is powered by the world's largest and most advanced biomass CFB (circulating fluidized-bed) boiler, which was supplied by Foster Wheeler. CFB technology is capable of fully firing a wide range of biomasses and other fuels, including those derived from agricultural crops. "Agro" biomass can be produced much faster and on a larger scale than longer growth wood-based biomasses, thus improving the economics and sustainability of biomass power.
