– Energy and environmental technology group Opcon has won a major bioenergy contract for Saxlund’s fuel handling and biomass combustion technology for the privately owned sawmill Hilmer Andersson, HAL in Korterud, Sweden. Order value amounts to around 28 m SEK with commissioning in 2015.
Delivery includes Saxlund’s robust fuel handling systems and leading combustion technology in combination with a hot-water boiler of 12 MW.
