SINGAPORE (ICIS)--French engineering firm Technip said on Thursday it has won a contract worth about €5m ($7m) from Forest BtL Oy for the front-end engineering and design of a new second generation biomass-to-liquid (BTL) plant.
The BTL plant, to be built on Ajos island, Finland, will produce around 140,000 tonnes of biodiesel and naphtha from wood and by-products from the wood-processing industry, Technip said in a statement.
The company could not be immediately reached for comments on the annual capacity of the new plant.
“Technip’s operating centre in Lyon, France, together with the group’s hydrogen technology centre in Zoetermeer, the Netherlands will execute the contract, which is scheduled to be completed in the first semester of 2014,” it added.
