We present an experimental study of a picosecond fiber soliton laser in which mode-locking is achieved by the combined action of MQW saturable absorber and nonlinear amplifying loop mirror (NALM). In this configuration a MQW sample acts not only as a saturable absorber but also as a passive phase modulator while the inclusion of NALM ensure fixed energy of the generated pulses. The laser stably operates at repetition rate of 250 MHz with timing jitter below 10 ps
