Ice cream factory heats animal hospital with energy solution from E.ON
SIA Glass, together with Hallands Djursjukhus in Slöinge, have signed an ectogrid agreement with E.ON. The technology is modern and energy efficient for heating and cooling, and customers own their own local energy system. E.ON’s ectogrid concept is based on a fairly simple principle. The excess heat emitted by a cooling machine can be used in a heat pump and the excess cooling from the heat pump can then be used in the cooling machine. There is thus a balance of heating and cooling in the property, which leads to a significantly reduced need for supplied energy. Excess flows with low temperatures are normally not recovered, instead they are blown away. Thanks to ectogrid, properties with a heat surplus can share it with properties that need heat. This is done with a simple plastic pipe system. This solution has been implemented in Slöinge, where the SIA ice cream factory has a heat surplus which is now used by Hallands Djursjukhus. FVB in Malmö has been commissioned to be the construction manager for the distribution lines in the ground for this exciting project.
New framework agreements
FVB is very pleased to have signed a new framework agreement with both E.ON and Vattenfall. The agreements provide FVB with excellent opportunities for continued positive cooperation with two of Sweden’s largest energy companies. FVB has also signed new framework agreements with Gävle Energi and Växjö Energi. Both agreements are for two years. FVB has also won a new framework agreement in HVAC for Arboga Vatten och Avlopp, Kungsörs Vatten and VME. This is an important part of FVB’s investment in the water and sewer sector.
Gävle and Sandviken are being connected
Gävle Energi and Sandviken Energi will connect their district heating systems through a 20-km-long line. FVB has been commissioned to design and construct the lines with associated drawings and procurement documentation in two of three stages. The lines will be dimension DN500. Design and procurement will take place in 2021, and the lines will be put into operation in 2023. The investment contributes to a carbon reduction of approximately 46,000 tons per year and is partially funded by Klimatklivet with 210 million SEK.
