      Nov. 15 -- Gasnam issued the following news release:

      The Wärtsilä technology group will supply a biogas liquefaction and upgrade solution for a new biogas plant in Sweden. The plant will be used to reduce carbon emissions from transportation and to accelerate the transition to cleaner energy. The order was placed by the energy company St1 and it will be located at the Borås Energi och Miljö facility in Sobacken, near the city of Borås (Sweden). The plant is expected to be fully operational by the end of 2023. The order was placed on the Wärtsilä order book in September 2022.

      The plant will take biogas from municipal waste and wastewater treatment plants, and convert it into usable bioLNG. It will be the first facility of its kind capable of simultaneously producing bioLNG and biomethane.

      “St1 is committed to improving sustainable energy production and biogas will play an increasingly important role in this regard. We already operate the Wärtsilä biogas upgrade in Sweden and are happy to continue the cooperation with the new liquefaction project”, says Matti Oksanen, Head of the St1 Gas Business.

      “Wärtsilä continues to lead the transition to carbon neutral energy solutions. Our deep experience and knowledge of biogas upgrading technologies is unmatched in the industry, and our refrigerant blending technology is extremely reliable and offers the lowest operating costs for liquefying biogas. We are proud to have once again been selected by St1 as it represents a clear endorsement of customer satisfaction,” commented Rolf Håkansson, Sales, Wärtsilä Gas Solutions, Biogas Solutions.

      When operational, the plant will be capable of producing 10 tons of bioLNG per day. In addition to the equipment, Wärtsilä will also support the installation with a spare parts package and a service agreement.

      The project has received support from Klimatklivet, a Swedish investment program for projects that reduce climate impact.
