BKtech BioOne Steam 1,3 MW for steam production

Interesting facts:

The process

The modular bioenergy plant was completed and tested at BKtech’s factory in Blomstermåla before delivery. In early October 2020, the plant was delivered to CWS-boco in Skara. There the plant was connected to existing production and we carried out performance testing and trial operation before commissioning and handover to CWS-boco.

Bioenergy has been a saving grace

CWS is working hard to become a 100% climate-neutral company. They have been relying on biomass to generate their process heat since 2020 and are extremely satisfied with the results. The company’s activities include industrial laundry services, among others. Here Jens Abeling, Project Manager Operations, talks about CWS’s journey to more sustainable processes fas a result of moving away from fossil fuels. “We should have switched to pellets sooner,” he states.

The result

The total time from contract signature to delivery of fossil-free steam was about 7 months. Thanks to highly efficient production methods, BKtech has the shortest delivery times on the market, which in turn leads to lower energy costs for our clients more quickly. Unlike site-built plants, the delivery of a modular bioenergy plant has minimal impact on the client’s existing operations.
