The district heating plant located in Tomelilla began its production in the 1980s at the industrial area. District heating was later extended to the urban area in 1999 and is currently owned by Solör Bioenergi Syd AB. There are two boilers at the Tomelilla heating plant, and the fuel consists mainly of residues from the forest industry. Solör Bioenergi has previously invested in ORC systems for Flen, Hörby, Svenljunga and Vilhelmina, among others. The addition of the ORC system is fully aligned with Solör Bioenergi’s goal to utilize the forest’s resources and create a sustainable society, supported by lower energy costs from the ORC system.
Againity delivered an automated ORC system with a maximum capacity of 99.9 kW electricity production. The ORC system enables electricity production from the boiler’s hot water. In total, the system is expected to produce 430 MWh annually, corresponding to emission savings of 387 tonnes of CO2 equivalents when substituting coal-based electricity.
