Work at Nokia Pyrolysis Plant are going strong
Construction works at Kolmenkulma Pyrolysis plant in the City of Nokia are on schedule as the steel frame of the building is now assembled. After that installation of wall and roof elements has begun that will give to the plant its distinctive shape.
“The construction phase of the main building is on schedule” says Olli-Pekka Hyvärinen, Director at Watrec. “When the construction phase of the main building is finalized the installation of the pyrolysis equipment will be started. I’m pleased with the progress of the works at Nokia’s site, winter hasn’t slowed construction works down”.
Watrec is delivering the Pyrolysis Plant in Nokia as a turnkey solution with the responsibility of every step from design phase to commissioning of the plant. During the last years Watrec has been delivering circular economy projects in Finland such as Riihimäki Bio-refinery and several other biogas plant projects around Finland. Circular economy is a business sector that is growing very fast and Watrec is strong part of that.
Pyrolysis is a thermochemical decomposition of organic compounds in the absence of oxygen. The pyrolysis plant will process 7,500 ton of recycled raw material per year, for example used tires. In that case end products from the pyrolysis process are gas, coal and steel.
Nokia’s Pyrolysis plant will be commissioned during Autumn 2017. The plant is built for Taaleri Kiertoketju Ky.
