High Coast Whisky in Norrbotten, Sweden, has partnered with renewable energy solutions provider BKtech to switch from fossil fuel oil to bioenergy at its production facility.
BKtech will help the whisky producer to use wood pellets, making energy consumption at the company completely fossil-free, renewable, and sustainable.
The bioenergy will be delivered via a new 870 kW steam boiler, which will be installed in a new building that is connected to the existing production system.
With the energy conversion, High Coast Distillery will reduce its carbon emissions by approximately 560 tonnes per year, equivalent to emissions from around 200 passenger cars on an annual basis.
Delivery of the biomass boiler is expected in autumn.
