Wartsila to supply tech for bioLNG plant in Sweden
Wartsila will supply a biogas upgrading and liquefaction solution for a new biogas plant in Sweden, the company said on October 18.
The plant will be used to reduce carbon emissions from transport, and to speed the transition to cleaner energy. The order was placed by the energy company St1 and will be located at the Boras Energi och Miljo facility at Sobacken, near the city of Boras in Sweden. The plant is expected to be fully operational by the end of 2023.
The plant will take biogas from municipal waste and wastewater treatment plants, and upgrade it into usable bioLNG. It will be the first installation of its kind capable of producing both bioLNG and biomethane simultaneously, Wartsila said.
When operational, the plant will be capable of producing 10 metric tons/day of bioLNG. In addition to the equipment, Wartsila will also support the facility with a spare parts package and a service agreement.
The project has been granted support from Klimatklivet, a Swedish investment programme aimed at projects that reduce climate impact.
