COMPANIES TO BE VISITED

The following list of companies we are going to visit, following the tour plan we decided to keep:

  • HELSINKI
    • ABB Solar Power Plant: Is a leader in power and automation technologies that enable utility, industry, and transport and infrastructure customers to improve their performance while lowering environmental impact.
    • ST1 Biofuels: St1 Nordic focuses on fuel marketing activities in Finland, Sweden and Norway and on renewable energy solutions such as waste-based ethanol fuels and industrial wind power.
  • STOCKHOLM
    • STATKRAFT District heating: Statkraft is currently the fourth largest energy company in Sweden, owning and operating 58 power plants. The hydropower plants are organized under Statkraft Sverige AB, which focuses on operation and maintenance of hydropower plants in Sweden and the associated planning and administration of catchment area. Statkraft owns and operates five district heating plants in Sweden.
  • OSLO
    • KLEMETSRUD Waste-to-Energy plant: The Klemetsrud plant recycles household and commercial waste from Oslo, neighboring communities and other waste. The heat energy from the incineration of waste is used to produce hot water, which is utilized in Oslo’s district heating systems and the production of electricity.
    • BW MARITIME: BW Group is a leading global maritime group involved in oil and gas transportation, floating gas infrastructure, deepwater production and dry cargo transportation. Through its predecessor companies, Bergesen and World-Wide Shipping, BW has been delivering energy and other vital commodities for more than 80 years.  BW’s fleet of over 150 vessels includes crude oil supertankers, refined oil tankers, LNG and LPG carriers, floating storage and regasification (FSRU) units, chemical tankers and floating production storage and offloading (FPSO) units.
  • LYSEKIL-RINGHALS
    • GU VENTURES SEATWIRL AB (Lysekil): SeaTwirl is an offshore floating wind turbine. These wind turbines are easier to build, install and will require less maintenance than the traditional offshore wind turbines.
    • RINGHALS NUCLEAR POWER PLANT (VATTENFALL):Ringhals consists of four reactors and is one of few nuclear power plants to have both boiling water and pressurised water reactors. The first reactor (R1) is a boiling water reactor, built by Asea-Atom, and has an installed electrical capacity of 865 MW. It began operating commercially in January 1976. The three remaining reactors (R2, R3 and R4) are pressurised water reactors manufactured by Westinghouse. R2 has an installed electrical capacity of 865 MW and went commercial in May 1975. R3 has an installed electrical capacity of 1,047 MW and began commercial operation in September 1981 and R4 – with an installed electrical capacity of 940 MW – went commercial in November 1983.
  • COPENHAGEN
    • SYMBIOSIS CENTER IN KALUNDBORG: Is an industrial ecosystem, where the by-product residual product of one enterprise is used as a resource by another enterprise, in a closed cycle. An industrial symbiosis is a local collaboration where public and private enterprises buy and sell residual products, resulting in mutual economic and environmental benefits.
    • BIOFOS P2G-BIOCAT PROJECT (AVEDØRE): The overall objective of the BioCat Project is to design, engineer, construct and test a commercial-scale power-to-gas facility at a wastewater treatment plant in Denmark and demonstrate its capability to provide energy storage services to the Danish energy system. The facility is under construction at the moment but welcomes interested people to give a view on a modern possibility of energy storage.
