Sweden: EPCM Services Sunpine’s Biorefinery Expansion Project Bagged by Pöyry
Pöyry has been awarded the EPCM contract as the firm was already involved in the study phase of the project. The development plan is scheduled to be complete by 2020.
Norrbotten County/Sweden – Sunpine has recently awarded Pöyry with engineering, procurement and construction management (EPCM) services for the Sunpine biorefinery expansion project in Piteå, Sweden. The assignment includes all engineering disciplines, project management services, procurement and construction management services. Pöyry has been involved in the study phase of the project and now has the role to further develop the project in accordance with the conditions, standards and procedures of the existing plant to form a single unit. The work will be carried out between 2018 and 2020.
Sunpine has one of the world’s leading sustainable bio-refineries, with a portfolio of green products that meet the strong demand in the market. The market for Sunpine's sustainable tall diesel fuel is growing as consumers are shifting towards renewable fuels. Working proactively to develop and grow its operation is part of Sunpine's endeavour to participate in the switch to a green economy for the society at large.
Sunpine has decided to invest in a completely new facility adjacent to the company's existing plant at Haraholmen in Piteå. Its capacity will also be increased by 50 per cent with the construction of a second tall diesel production line. The approximately 28 million dollar investment is expected to be complete by 2020.
