ÅF provided total solution for district heating plant after conducting feasibility study for Lantmännen.

ÅF provided total solution for district heating plant after conducting feasibility study for Lantmännen.

The plant that supplies Lantmännen’s grain facility with district heating was started up in July 2014. In 2012 Lantmännen was told that Vattenfall in Uppsala was going to shut down the steampipe line that supplied heat to Uppsala University Hospital and Lantmännen’s grain facility. Lantmännen asked ÅF to investigate the alternative energy sources available.

A feasibility study and investigation was initiated, and the outcome showed that high-voltage electricity, liquefied natural gas, and district heating were the best options. In consultation with ÅF, Lantmännen decided to primarily negotiate with Vattenfall on delivery of district heating, and Lantmännen also instructed ÅF to begin planning and preparing specification documents. ÅF submitted proposals on how ÅF could undertake the project as a total solution.

The plant was finished in early July 2014 as contracted.
