Perstorp to upgrade to combined heat and power with an ORC

In Skåne, southern Sweden, local district heating provider Perstorps Fjärrvärme AB will upgrade its 12 MW biomass-fired heat plant to become a combined heat and power (CHP) plant. This the company will achieve by installing a 250 kW Organic Rankine Cycle (ORC) unit at the heating plant. Jointly owned by E.ON Sverige AB, a subsidiary of Germany-headed energy major E.ON AG and Perstorp’s municipality, Perstorps Fjärrvärme has chosen to invest in

First open visit to VänerEnergi’s ORC turbine

On May 16, the first open demonstration was held at the newly installed ORC turbine at VänerEnergi’s heating plant in Töreboda. Heating companies, consultants and suppliers learned more about small-scale electricity production and what it means to upgrade a heating plant to a CHP plant. Thank you to all participants for your engagement and exciting conversations about the potential for increased small-scale electricity production from biomass. Were you not able

Againity ORC turbine installed in Töreboda

The first kilowatt hours of renewable electricity are now produced from residual wood shavings at the heating plant in Töreboda. VänerEnergi has installed an innovative solution that converts hot water from their biomass boiler into electricity for the heating plant’s own consumption. The so-called ORC turbine has an installed power of 50 kW electricity, which corresponds to the annual production of 140 single-family homes with solar cells. ”An investment entirely

Swedish Energy Agency supports Againity

Againity has developed a technique for converting low heat to electricity. The technology resembles that of conventional steam plants, but is based on a so-called Organic Rankine Cycle (ORC). Againity has succeeded in scaling down the technology with sustained cost-effectiveness, and is today the market leader in ORC systems with an output of less than 400 kW. The technology enables smaller heat plants to be easily upgraded to electricity generating CHP plants. The
