Caligo Industria Oy receives order from Oy Perhonjoki AB for heat pump scrubber

At the end of December 2018, Caligo Industria received an order from Katternö Group’s Oy Perhonjoki AB, whereby Caligo Industria will deliver a heat pump scrubber to the company’s Ylivieska 31 MW biomass plant. The commissioning of the scrubber will take place during autumn of 2019. This scrubber is to date the biggest scrubber delivered by Caligo Industria.

The scrubber will recover waste heat from the flue gases of the biomass plant. The recovered heat energy will be returned to the district heating network for further utilisation. The patented and thermodynamically optimised connection of the heat pump and the scrubber combined with automated control system are the core of the technology. The designed heat recovery of the Ylivieska scrubber is at least 25-30%.

The Caligo flue gas scrubber removes sulphur compounds from biomass plant flue gases and significantly reduces particulate emissions.

Caligo receives three major orders from Finnish and French sawmills

Finnish cleantech company Caligo Industria Oy has received three major orders from Finnish and French sawmills. In 2019, Caligo Industria will deliver flue gas scrubbers to the Keitele Group's Alajärvi and Keitele sawmills in Finland, and to the Piveteau Group's Sainte-Florence sawmill in France. The scrubbers will recover waste heat from the flue gases and the heat will be utilized as drying heat in the sawmill processes. The orders represent are a major breakthrough in the sawmill industry for Caligo. Caligo's deliveries to date have focused only on district heating plants.
