Together, the two companies hope to realise lower operating costs, higher efficiency and greater reliability for clients through the pooling of their 40 years’ experience in the market.
Jernforsen has delivered more than 1,000 plants to clients across the world since it was founded in 1984, including working closely with Swedish state university Linnéuniversitetet for almost 20 years. It has increasingly invested in smaller cogeneration plants of up to 5MWe, which it sees as a key growth market.
Now Scot Heat & Power is leveraging Jernforsen’s significant know-how for UK projects, including wood processing, pellet production, and WID-compliant boilers.
Scot Heat & Power meanwhile continues to enhance its own offering of highly efficient wood chip/wood pellet-fuelled boilers, specialising in 100Kw to 6MW biomass boilers, low temperature hot water boilers, steam applications, WID-compliant boilers, CHP, and district heating applications.
Amid sustained investment in its operations, including multiple depots across Scotland, Scot Heat & Power recently established a new base in Cumbria.
Malcolm Snowie, Managing Director, Scot Heat & Power, said: “Like Jernforsen, our products are innovative, technically sophisticated, but simple and reliable to run, so the relationship is a natural one for us that we are certain will continue to deliver value, providing the most effective solutions that biomass and steam energy provides.”
