Finnish companies are looking at India’s renewable energy market to offer power from municipal waste, a technology in which the European country has excelled.
At several locations in Finland, companies, including Vantaa Energy and Ekokem, have set up medium-sized plants that burn municipal waste to generate power. Both companies are looking at India and will showcase their projects to Indian Power Minister Piyush Goyal and his team when he visits Finland in a few weeks, said officias from the Finnish power department. The 200-MW plant at Vantaa, a town adjacent to Finnish capital Helsinki, is 40% owned by the City of Helsinki and 60% owned by the City of Vantaa. Electricity from the plant is also sold on the European energy exchange.
