Westenergy Oy Ab owns and operates a Waste-to-Energy plant which utilises source-separated combustible waste as fuel. The Waste-to-Energy plant is located in Mustasaari, near the city of Vaasa in Finland, and the construction and installation work was completed in 2012.
The Westenergy Waste-to-Energy plant is an important part of a well-functioning waste management system. The plant extracts energy from non-recyclable waste in an efficient, safe and clean way.
Westenergy’s cooperation partner Vaasan Sähkö Oy uses the steam produced in the plant to produce electricity and district heating. Over one third of the district heating needed in Vaasa is produced at the plant.
