Tampereen Sähkölaitos Oy – biopower plant Naistenlahti 3
Mäkitalo acts as a legal advisor to Tampereen Sähkölaitos Oy in the company’s Naistenlahti 3 biopower plant project.
We are responsible for the project’s legal expertise in e.g. public procurement procedures, contract negotiations, legal project management and project financing advice.
The Naistenlahti 3 biopower plant is mainly fueled by bioenergy, with milled peat as a secondary fuel. The power plant operates as a district heating base load plant annually from September to June, with a steam capacity of 191 MW. The plant concept is based on combined heat and power (CPH) using an existing old steam turbine and its auxiliary systems, such as a flue gas heat recovery system. Due to the condensation of flue gas water vapor, the overall efficiency of the new plant is approximately 112% of the net heat value of the fuel.
The new biopower plant will be built between the boiler of the old Naistenlahti 2 power plant and Lake Näsijärvi. Special attention has been paid to the power plant’s architecture: for example, the facade overlooking the lake has been finished with aluminum profiles of various shapes. The estimated completion date of the biopower plant is the end of 2022.
