In the field of biomass based energy production solutions, Valmet will sharpen its focus on the product portfolio. In the future, Valmet’s offering will cover boiler islands, small power plants based on bubbling fluidized bed (BFB) and BioGrate combustion technologies, and large heating plants based on BFB and pellet technologies.

As a result of this process, Valmet will divest its small-scale heating plant business and related services operations in Finland, Russia and Sweden. The price of the transactions will not be disclosed.

Transactions in Finland and Russia
The small-scale heating plant business in Finland and Russia will be sold to Finnish company KPA Unicon. This business is currently part of MW Power Oy and the revenue of the business has been around EUR 20 million annually. The asset deal covers in Finland the operations in Kiuruvesi, including a production unit, and in Russia the service business in Moscow. The Finnish operations have 68 and Russian operations 4 employees.

The scope of the divestment includes small-scale heating plants, typically under 25 MWth, based on BioGrate and pellet technologies, fire-tube oil and gas boilers, and related services.

At the same time Valmet and KPA Unicon have signed a cooperation agreement covering development of BioGrate and pellet technologies, production of modules and grate manufacturing.

In Finland, the closing of the transaction will happen by the end of January 2014. The Russian service business will be transferred during the first quarter of 2014.

Transactions in Sweden
Valmet has signed a contract to divest the small-scale heating plant business in Sweden to a part of current MW Power AB management. The MBO (Management Buyout) scope covers the operations in Sävsjö, including a production unit with 42 employees. The closing of the transaction is targeted to happen by early January, 2014.

The scope of the divestment includes small-scale pellet heating plants, oil and gas boilers, and related services. The revenue of the business has been around EUR seven million annually.
