OX2 wins concession for one of Sweden’s largest biogas plants

Sweden-headed renewable energy project developer, financier, and operator OX2 Group AB has announced that it will take over NSR’s biogas plant outside Helsingborg, Sweden January 1, 2016. The plant has a capacity to produce around 80 GWh of biogas and 140-150,000 tonnes of biofertiliser annually. "Putting the concession out to tender is another step in improving NSR as a strategic tool focused on sustainability and regional development”, said Kim Olsson, CEO of NSR AB.

OX2, best-known for its position in wind power in the Nordic region, is also active in other areas within renewable energy, and bioenergy is one of its important focus areas. As of January 1, 2016, OX2 will take over the operation of NSR’s biogas plant in Helsingborg, including 13 of the employees.

I am really pleased that OX2 has been entrusted to run one of Sweden’s largest biogas plants, and we are looking forward to working with the incredibly skilled staff. OX2 will continue to develop the business and make the most of the synergies between bioenergy and wind power, said Fredrik Olrog, Managing Director of OX2 Bio.

Biogas produced from municipal organic waste and other organic waste from local industrial food producers and farms will be used to fuel local and regional buses in public transportation.

OX2 wants to be a driving force behind the transition to a non-fossil fuel vehicle fleet. Biogas is already the most popular renewable fuel for road transport in Sweden, and its role is set to grow, not least within the heavy transport sector, said Fredrik Olrog.
