The solar energy system of Pori’s swimming hall

The solar energy system of Pori’s swimming hall

The city of Pori made a brave opening by choosing solar energy to be one of the energy sources of their swimming hall. Special attention was paid to the appearance of the swimming hall. For the first time in the world the façade of a swimming hall was integrated with Aurubiks Nordic Solar heat system. In addition, there are 360 square metres of solar panels (50 kWp) and 200 square metres of solar heat collectors on the roof of the hall.

The swimming hall project combined the latest technology, the development of renewable energy sources applications, research and innovations as well as strong local know-how. Energy efficiency has been considered also in other solutions, e.g. the heat is recovered from both the exhaust air of air conditioning and shower water.

The solar energy production of Pori’s swimming hall has been followed during several years. Follow-up data is available in Finnish on Motiva's website.

Metener Ltd

Mr. Erkki Kalmari, technician and dairy farmer, constructed a biogas plant on his farm in late 90´s. He had seen some biogas plants on a technical tour in Germany and wanted to have his own plant. After few years of succesful biogas CHP utilisation he designed and manufactured a biogas upgrading unit and started to use biogas as a vehicle fuel in the year 2002. In the same year he opened a public CBG (compressed biogas) filling station and founded Metener Ltd with partners.

Metener Ltd has done a lot of R&D work over the years. Metener has its own laboratory for research. Company has done several biogas production trials for different biomasses and co-operated with universities and research bodies. Also biogas upgrading technology has been developed further.
Metener has required permissions to assemble and inspect bio/natural gas installations. In most cases, Metener Ltd delivers process and constructional planning, automation, biogas and biomass treatment equipment and pipe systems, as well as biogas utilisation equipment. Electrical engineering, groundworks and construction works are plannend and contracted in cooperation with customer.

Future


  • We continue designing and constructing biogas plants in Finland and also abroad. Abroad we operate with local partners.

  • We emphasise development of small- and medium sized regional biogas plants and farm-scale plants

  • We continue R&D work with biogas plants and we are looking for efficient ways to utilize biomasses with high dry matter content (e. g. grass from arable lands, landscaping grass, dry manure from horse and poultry).

  • Landfill gas upgrading for vehicles and landfill gas collecting optimisation.

BioSampo Training and Research Centre

BioSampo Training and Research Centre

At the BioSampo Training and Research Centre we train hands-on experts and practice experimental research in order to develop ethical bio-economy.

Knowing how to make use of resources sustainably is the key to practice bio-economy in a more self-contained way anywhere in the world. BioSampo is a practical learning environment, where one learns to do by practicing and to understand by practice. The execution of training is possible in the innovative BioSampo learning environment, thanks to the solid experience of our training team, their high motivation and multi-disciplinary professional skills.

What do we train?

Decentralized local production, renewable energy sustainable usage, co-production of electricity, heating and cooling, manufacturing important environmental commodities such as bio char and purified drinking water. The process in whole is called the BioSampo process.
Where do we practice? BioSampo Training and Research Centre is part of the Kouvola Region Vocational College (KSAO) and is located in the school’s Natural Resources training unit in Anjala. We have a global approach, since in addition to organizing our local vocational youth and adult education, we are developing export school activity targeting to launch educational exports and the BioSampo satellite school network abroad.

Why do we exist?

In recent decades, we came to realize that in Finland and abroad, there is a great need to develop the bio-economy local production model into more versatile. We understood that the only way to achieve a permanent transformation, where a single bio-producer or rural entrepreneur is in the focal point, is education. We decided to put our ideas into action and created BioSampo, with the support from the Regional Council of Kymenlaakso, The Centre for Economic Development, Transport and the Environment (ELY Centre) and the City of Kouvola. BioSampo is currently an active training unit in Kouvola Region Vocational School but strongly continues developing.

E18 Koskenkylä–Kotka Highway

E18 Koskenkylä–Kotka Highway

The main road 7 is part of the international European road 18 and the Nordic Triangle traffic system, and it is regarded important by the European Union. The Finnish Transport Agency launched a project in 2011 to upgrade the road into a highway all the way from city of Helsinki to the busiest border crossing Vaalimaa.

C2 SmartLight Ltd supplied the street lighting control system for Koskenkylä–Kotka highway. The lighting control solution presented is unique, specifically designed and tailored for highway lighting – a solution no-one else in Finland could have offered. C2 SmartLight provided the software and the equipment used for lighting controlling, and coordinated their installation.

Demand-oriented Lighting

The C2 SmartLight central control system uses a web-based interface that the users can access remotely to monitor and adjust the settings of the lighting in different areas of the road. The sodium-vapor luminaires used in E18 are set to illuminate at the right output level in accordance with a variety of parameters ranging from amount of traffic, weather conditions to the luminance in different parts of the highway. The C2 SmartLight central control system is compatible with different kinds of information systems and thus able to use the data from e.g. meteo stations and traffic control systems. Dynamic, intelligent location-specific light control increases security and facilitates a significant reduction on energy consumption.

Automatic Failure Notifications and Reports

The lighting control system generates automatically failure notifications and reports. Failure notifications including the location of and type of the failure are automatically sent to the maintenance personnel by sms or email, depending on the importance level. The control system does not require constant supervision, but alarms the maintenance personnel when needed. The control devices on the site have a back-up system that works without connection to the control room.

The system provides reports about energy consumption, luminance measurements, burn times of the light bulbs or led-luminaires, and on/off switching times. The reports can be formed in desired periods and presented in graphics or tables. With the C2 SmartLight lighting control solution, the lighting of E18 is demand-oriented and ensures safety and comfort for all travelers.


C2 SmartLight Ltd

C2 SmartLight Ltd is a high-technology company that focuses on intelligent outdoor lighting control solutions. C2 SmartLight has completed over 130 lighting projects ranging from public spaces, national highways and harbors to private infrastructures.

C2 SmartLight creates energy-saving solutions for outdoor lighting, and provides both electrical and lighting design services, the equipment and software needed for the light control, and monitoring services. C2 SmartLight provides support for the customer at each stage of the project from planning to the after-deployment services.

During winter 2014 LeaseGreen and Ouman carried out a joint energy saving project which intensified the energy use of certain apartment buildings owned by Helsinki City.

In the project Ouman’s HeatGuards were installed into the heat distribution rooms of five apartment buildings. Through this the heating costs are estimated to decrease roughly by quarter million during the life cycle of the investment.

The buildings have been constructed in 1999−2001 and they are tended by Heka-Vuosaari Oy owned by Helsinki City. The joint project by LeaseGreen and Ouman proved that there are rational possibilities to save energy even in rather new apartment buildings.

Kakola’s heat pump station

TSE’s (Turun Seudun Energiantuotanto Oy) heat pump plant in Kakola utilizes wastewater’s heat in order to produce both district heating and cooling for buildings at Turku region. The plant was finished in Spring 2009 next to Kakola’s wastewater treatment plant and the second heat pump was installed in Summer 2013. With the help of heat pumps the remaining heat energy from the water can be recovered instead of discharging it directly to the sea.

The heat produced in the heat pump plant corresponds to the heating needs of ca. 24 000 citizens of Turku. The wastewater cools down in heat pumps while releasing the heat energy to the water circulating in district heat network, after this the cooled down water is still used to district cooling. The plant is situated in a cave inside of Kakola’s rock. Besides the heat pumps there is a cold water reservoir (16 000 cubic metres) which is used to level daily variations in the district cooling network.

Kalmari farm

Kalmari farm

Kalmari farm is one of the pioneer farms producing biogas in Finland, and an excellent example of innovative use of biogas technology. The farm is self-sufficient in electricity, heat and vehicle fuel. Excess electricity is sold to the grid, and vehicle fuel sales exceeded 1000 MWh in 2011. The biogas plant digests cow manure and confectionery by-products, and in the future will also digest fat trap waste and liquid biowaste.

Esite: Pioneering Biogas farming in Central Finland.


Kalmari farm

Metener Ltd

Mr. Erkki Kalmari, technician and dairy farmer, constructed a biogas plant on his farm in late 90´s. He had seen some biogas plants on a technical tour in Germany and wanted to have his own plant. After few years of succesful biogas CHP utilisation he designed and manufactured a biogas upgrading unit and started to use biogas as a vehicle fuel in the year 2002. In the same year he opened a public CBG (compressed biogas) filling station and founded Metener Ltd with partners.

Metener Ltd has done a lot of R&D work over the years. Metener has its own laboratory for research. Company has done several biogas production trials for different biomasses and co-operated with universities and research bodies. Also biogas upgrading technology has been developed further.
Metener has required permissions to assemble and inspect bio/natural gas installations. In most cases, Metener Ltd delivers process and constructional planning, automation, biogas and biomass treatment equipment and pipe systems, as well as biogas utilisation equipment. Electrical engineering, groundworks and construction works are plannend and contracted in cooperation with customer.

Future


  • We continue designing and constructing biogas plants in Finland and also abroad. Abroad we operate with local partners.

  • We emphasise development of small- and medium sized regional biogas plants and farm-scale plants

  • We continue R&D work with biogas plants and we are looking for efficient ways to utilize biomasses with high dry matter content (e. g. grass from arable lands, landscaping grass, dry manure from horse and poultry).

  • Landfill gas upgrading for vehicles and landfill gas collecting optimisation.

The heat pump in the Water Treatment Plant of the Helsinki Region Environmental Services HSY

The heat pump in the Water Treatment Plant of the Helsinki Region Environmental Services HSY

The heat pump station in the Pitkäkoski Water Treatment Plant of the Helsinki Region Environmental Services HSY recovers heat from the raw water from Lake Päijänne and transfers it into the internal heating network of the station.

The special challenge concerning household water is that heat recovery may not compromise the reliability of delivery or water hygiene under no circumstance. There is also a danger that raw water will freeze in the heat exchangers when the temperature is low. The system pilots new technology and the experiences gained may be utilized in other water treatment plants.

The purpose of the pump system is to produce heat into the heating network of the plant. The heat source for the pump is water originating from Lake Päijänne in the raw water pipeline. The main principle is that raw water is directed to the pump station where heat is recoveded and the water then directed back to the pipeline somewhat colder. The heat benefit is around 2 degrees. The system includes two Oilon’s ChillHeat S280 pumps.

Sybimar's closed circulation concept

Sybimar's closed circulation concept

Sybimar has developed a bioenergy and food production solution based on closed circulation, where waste, waste heat, nutrients and carbon dioxide are used and recycled back to energy and food production. The pilot plant of the concept functions in Uusikaupunki, but the concept can be tailored to serve different needs in local conditions.

The basic idea behind the concept is to create sustainable and economically sound business without burdening the Environment. The concept includes a fishery, a greenhouse, a biogas plant, a generator as well as a biofuel plant. The fishery circulates waste water and is situated on dry land. The nutritious water from the fishery is guided to the greenhouse to fertilize growing vegetables.

The biogas plant recovers all gases formed by the waste in the landfill. Besides this, the organic side streams of the greenhouse and the fishery are directed there. The gas is utilized in Sybimar’s own generator to produce electricity and heat which are then used in the plants of the closed circulation concept.

In the exhaustless closed circulation concept energy is produced from waste and the fishery and the greenhouse are connected to each other. The greenhouse heats up, oxidizes and purifies water, whereas the nutrients from the fish farming fertilize growth. The digestate remains from the biogas plant are used for soil enrichment.


Sybimar's closed circulation concept

Sybimar Ltd

Sybimar Ltd was founded in 2005 and is based in Uusikaupunki, Finland. The company produces biofuels from food industry by-products and manufactures process equipment for producing biofuels.

    Tilkka Hospital

    In early 2014 LeaseGreen enhanced the energy use of the premises of Tilkka Hospital, including a historic former military hospital and associated newer premises. Together with the property owners, the Finnish pension insurance company Etera, LeaseGreen set a target aiming to achieve savings in the use of district heating and electricity worth 200,000 euros during the life cycle of the energy saving measures.

    The project agreement commits Etera to pay monthly fees to LeaseGreen for a period of 48 months. The project started with the installation of smart building technologies including sensors and motion detectors.

    The energy savings already achieved during the project’s first few months indicate that the total savings target will be significantly exceeded. Savings realised in the first four months were 68% higher than the promised levels.
