Againity and Schmid enter collaboration for small-scale CHP
Swedish Organic Rankine Cycle (ORC) turbine manufacturer Againity AB has announced that it has signed a collaboration agreement with Swiss boiler manufacturer Schmid AG Energy Solutions for the delivery of small-scale combined heat and power (CHP) plants. Existing, as well as new boiler plants, can now add-on an ORC turbine, allowing the plant to combine its renewable heat production with local weather-independent power production.
Schmid AG Energy Solutions is a Swiss family business, which is dealing with energy issues for over 80 years and employs about 300 people. In the course of their successful company history, Schmid has evolved to become a leading international specialist and manufacturer of systems for biomass energy.
In addition to its headquarters, the Schmid Group comprises three more offices in Switzerland. The company has 9 subsidiaries in Europe and many strong partnerships around the globe.
We are impressed by the technology and the modularity of Againity’s product, said Marcel Danuser, Head of Export Sales at Schmid energy solutions.
The ORC turbine can be connected to hot water boilers as well as steam boilers. With local power production, the plant cuts electricity and power grid costs while releasing capacity on the local grid and contributing to more renewable electricity production.
We are very glad that Schmid has chosen us as a supplier for Schmid boilers, to complement their existing heat offer with electricity production. We are impressed by the performance of Schmid boilers and their network in Central Europe as well as globally, said David Frykerås, CEO of Againity.
