OX2 will take over NSR's biogas plant outside Helsingborg on January 1, 2016. The plant has a capacity to produce around 80 GWh of biogas and 140-150,000 tons of bio fertilizer per year.  

OX2, best-known for its position in wind power in the Nordic region, is also active in other areas within renewable energy, and bioenergy is one of its important focus areas. As of 1 January, OX2 will take over the operation of NSR’s biogas plant, including 13 of the employees.

Biogas produced from municipal solid waste and other organic bi-products from local industrial food producers and farms will be used to fuel local and regional buses in public transportation.

OX2 develops, constructs, finances and manages renewable energy plants in northern Europe. We are a driving force in the transition towardsa sustainable energy sector, offering financial investors as well as large energy users the opportunity to invest in and own renewable energy. OX2has realized a significant part of the large-scale onshore wind power projects in the Nordic region. The group has operations in Sweden, Finland, Norway and Poland.
