Opcon to build bioenergy CHP plant in Sweden

Göteborg Energi AB, the main energy company in western Sweden, has chosen Opcon Bioenergy to build a small-scale, bioenergy-powered CHP plant for its subsidiary Falbygdens Energi.

This deal is expected to be worth around $13.2 million (US$21.5 million), with the plant being completed in 2012.

It represents the largest order ever for Opcon Bioenergy, which is part of Opcon’s renewables business division and focuses on waste heat recovery and bioenergy.

Under its Renergi brand, Opcon supplies systems for treatment and improved energy efficiency to biomass-powered district heating plants, sawmills, pellets manufacturers and commercial greenhouses, as well as treatment equipment for industrial plants and drying systems for biomass.

Outside of its domestic market, Opcon Bioenergy has, for the past two years, been active in waste heat recovery in Eastern Europe, signing deals in Poland and the Czech Republic, as well as the Baltic region.
