Solör Bioenergi acquires district heating network in Horndal
In Sweden, Solör Bioenergi Group has announced that it has complemented an earlier biomass heat plant acquisition in Horndal by acquiring the associated district heating networks from Bionär Närvärme AB.
Sweden-headed Solör Bioenergi Group is a leading player in renewable energy based on biomass fuels with 156 500 daily users. The company has operations located in 141 locations, primarily in Sweden and Norway, where they produce and distribute district heating, steam and electricity to housing, companies, public operations, and industries. The business also includes energy recovery from impregnated wood and biofuel production.
Since May 2019, Solör Bioenergi owns the production facility in Horndal, eastern Dalarna and has now purchased associated district heating networks from Bionär Närvärme AB. For Solör’s part, this means total responsibility for the production and distribution of bioheat to both municipal and private properties in Horndal.
We have grown strongly in recent years and will continue in that direction. Solör is interested in continuing to grow by taking over and developing heating plants, said Nicklas Eld, regional manager Solör Bioenergi Väst.
The district heating plant annually produces about 10 GWh and consists of two woodchip boilers of 4.9 MW and 2.5 MW thermal output respectively and an oil boiler used for backup and peak loads.
We are pleased to now be responsible for both the production and distribution of district heating in Horndal. We are a player dedicated to operating district heating plants, which can only be seen as positive for our customers. We will continue to deliver stable heat based on renewable fuels and with high quality and will continue to operate the Horndal customers in the same spirit as Bionär Närvärme. As Horndal grows, we are naturally interested in meeting the need for district heating and expanding our operations, ended Nicklas Eld.
