Scandinavian Biogas invests in new Norwegian plant
The plant will be operational in the third quarter of 2022 and will produce 35 GWh of biogas. Skogn has been supplying liquid biogas since 2018.
Skogn will supply the shipping company Hurtigruten with biogas as fuel for their fleet of ships.
“The operations at Skogn have been very appreciated, and the customers are queuing up," said Håvard Wollan, business area manager Norway. "So, it feels very inspiring to be able to announce that we are now expanding the capacity of liquid biogas. The customers are primarily customers who invest in green shipping and green road transport."
Matti Vikkula, CEO of the Scandinavian Biogas Group, added: “The expansion of Skogn is an important step for us. Earlier this year, we also received a grant from Klimatklivet by the Swedish government for the expansion of the facilities in the Stockholm area to liquid biogas. Biogas is today the purest energy technology because it takes care of waste and converts it into energy. In addition, it can be applied to the internal combustion engines on the market without major modifications."
