North Negros Biopower Inc. (NNBP) has awarded Pöyry the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract for a 25 MW biomass power plant to be located in Northern Negros, Philippines.
The assignment includes the design, procurement of all components, construction, erection and commissioning and testing of the entire power plant project. The power plant will be fuelled with sugar cane trash, a residual biomass remaining on the fields after the sugar cane has been harvested.
NNBP is a Philippine company registered with the Department of Energy and with extensive experience in developing renewable energy projects in the Philippines, such as solar power and biomass power plants.
“Pöyry is very active in the bioenergy sector around the world, but especially in the Philippines” said Pöyry's Peter Heinzelmann, Senior Vice President, Contracting, Energy Business Group.
Richard Pinnock, President of Pöyry's Energy Business Group and member of Pöyry's Group Executive Committee, added that the company’s EPC+ System Methodology is an approach which provides full transparency to the client throughout the project execution and the sharing in any savings from the agreed ceiling price at the close-out of the project. Mr Pinnock said that the company continues to see great interest in this approach as an alternative to the traditional EPC implementation approach, particularly in the bioenergy sector.
