System Renergi – the proﬁtable and eco-sustainable ﬂue gas heating system
New employees We welcome back Henry Sollengren after a short break that included a spot of parental leave. Henry is an experienced assembler and welder who spends much of his time on-site with our customers.
First order from Dalkia and Lithuania Svensk Rökgasenergi has received its ﬁrst order from the French group, Dalkia. The order is for a ﬂue gas recovery system for UAB Litesko’s Palangos Siluma heating plant in Palanga, Lithuania. This will be Svensk Rökgasenergi’s ﬁrst assignment in Lithuania. The deal was arranged via Svensk Rökgasenergi’s partner, Axis Industries. Palangos Siluma is one of several examples where the Dalkia group is investing in energy-saving and environmentally friendly technology. The wood chip boiler has an output of 6 MWth and the condenser will add a further 1.9 MWth. The ﬂue gas recovery system includes condenser, water treatment system and a scrubber. The particulate matter (pollutant) can be reduced to a maximum of 80 mg/Nm3 to air. Delivery will take place in June/July and start-up will be in the fourth quarter. Dalkia operates over 100 bio-energy plants in Europe and is working to gain ISO 14001 environmental certiﬁcation for all of them. The company develops energy solutions that utilise local raw materials and yield environmental and economic beneﬁts. The focus is increasingly on renewable energy sources, and wood and geothermal energy in particular.
In Lithuania, a country with considerable forest resources, Dalkia’s subsidiary Litesko operates ﬁve wood chip-based plants that have a total output of 20 MW. All ﬁve plants were previously run on oil and the environmental beneﬁts are therefore considerable. Emissions of carbon dioxide, for example, have been reduced by around 21,000 tonnes per year.
Palanga has 18,000 inhabitants and is located on Lithuania´s Baltic Sea coast, between Klaipeda and the border with Latvia. Palanga was ﬁrst mentioned in history in 1161 in connection with a legend about the army of the Danish King, Valdemar I. The Baltic has always been very signiﬁcant for the region, and water and the sea have played prominent roles in people’s lives. Fishermen, merchants and conquerors have featured in the sometimes stormy history of Palanga. Nowadays, most of the visitors are tourists enjoying the spa, sandy beaches and outdoor activities.
Ann Bringefors has replaced Agneta Granstrand as head of ﬁnance and administration. Ann joins us from Enaco where she was in a similar role.
Eva Westlén has joined our sales support team. Eva qualiﬁed as a mechanical engineer at the Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm and she has experience as a laboratory technician with responsibility for quality assurance of petroleum products. Eva will collect information for quotations, help customers with calculations and answer technical questions.

Energy-efﬁcient pellets production in Lessebo
New partner in Germany Svensk Rökgasenergi has signed an agent agreement on the German market with Mann Naturenergie GmbH & Co. KG in Langenbach, Rheinland-Pfalz. The company was formerly a customer of Svensk Rökgasenergi. The System Renergi gas condenser plant will be inaugurated in one of Mann Naturenergie’s pellets factories on 6 June. Mann Naturenergie has considerable experience of the bio-energy industry and has formed an organisation to sell Svensk Rökgasenergi’s products. The family-run Mann group includes transport and energy companies as well as consultancy services in energy. The Group is active in renewable energy in the form of wind power and bio-mass as well as producing electricity, heating and wood pellets. The company has certiﬁcation as a supplier of green electricity and has won a series of awards for environ-
ment-friendly and innovative energy technology. The UN branch ofﬁce in Bonn is one of Mann Naturenergie’s customers of green electricity. Mann Naturenergie was formed in 1994 and has 80 employees. The Mann group’s history goes back to 1925, when Emil Mann started a transport company to carry construction material. Today the Group’s main business areas are both transports and renewable energy, and its business is becoming more and more international. For more information, see www.mann-energie.de
Sharper focus on Poland Svensk Rökgasenergi has also signed an agent agreement with ISO Sp. z o.o. regarding comprehensive solutions for municipalities in Poland. A large number of district heating plants are to be converted from coal to biofuel and there is great potential for Svensk Rökgasenergi’s condenser system. The ﬁrst system is
expected to be installed during the third quarter of this year. ISO – which has no connection with the international standards organisation of the same name – was formed in 1999 and offers complete solutions, including ﬁnancing, to the 2,650 municipalities in Poland. The company’s head ofﬁce is in Kolbudy, just to the north of Gdansk, and there are 7 employees.
More district heating on island of Öland Svensk Rökgasenergi has received an order from Hotab to supply System Renergi to Färjestaden’s district heating plant in Mörbylånga municipality. Initially, the Renergi GK D700 gas condenser with water treatment system will increase output from the plant’s 3 MW boiler. The plant will also be adapted for the installation of an additional similar biofuel boiler. The condenser equipment will be delivered in the week starting 10 September and the heating plant will be started up in the autumn.
Vida-Gruppen has placed an order with Svensk Rökgasenergi for a complete gas condenser plant with electrostatic precipitator and water treatment system for delivery to the company’s pellets factory in Lessebo, Sweden. The bio-boiler has an output of 23 MW and it is calculated that the condenser will produce an additional 6 MW. Final installation is planned for the week starting 9 July.
Nordic Bioenergy Conference in Stockholm The Nordic Bioenergy Conference will be held on 11-13 June. The conference is being organised by Svebio in co-operation with its sister associations in Scandinavia, Nobio, Danbio and Finbio, and will be held in the City Conference Centre (Norra Latin/Folkets Hus) in Stockholm. Lennart Granstrand will make a speech in Session III on the subject of biomass raw materials. He will present new energy-efﬁcient solutions based on gas condensation. The conference programme, including study trips etc., is available at www.nordicbioenergy2007.se
Repeat order from Vaggeryds Energi Vaggeryds Energi AB has commissioned Svensk Rökgasenergi to install a gas condenser plant at the district heating plant in Vaggeryd. The assignment will be performed as a complete contract project comprising the Renergi GK D1000 condenser with water treatment system. The condenser will be connected to two solid fuel boilers with a total output of max. 10 MW. Delivery is planned for the week starting 11 June and the equipment will be taken into operation in the autumn. This is the second assignment Svensk Rökgasenergi has received from Vaggeryds Energi this year. The previous order was for a gas condenser plant for the heating plant at Skillingaryd, which was also performed as a complete contract project.
