Oct. 14 (Bloomberg) — Areva SA, a French nuclear-power
plant builder, won a contract to construct a 150-megawatt
biomass plant for Brazilian utility BOLT Energias.
The Campo Grande biomass power plant in the northeastern
state of Bahia will be the largest biomass facility in Brazil,
the Paris-based company said in a statement. The facility will
be fueled with woody biomass and is scheduled to start
operations in 2017.
Areva has built 95 biomass plants worldwide, with a total
installed capacity of more than 2,500 megawatts. Areva didn’t
immediately respond to e-mail and phone requests for comment.
