Hybrid Heat Pump to the world’s most advanced bio refinery

Hybrid Energy AS has been chosen as a major supplier to a large energy conservation project at Borregaard in Sarpsborg, Norway. Borregaard employs 1080 people in 16 countries throughout Europe, the Americas, Asia and Africa and has one of the world’s most advanced and sustainable bio-refineries.

Borregaard is aiming at reducing the energy consumption at their main plant in Sarpsborg by 60 GWh/year. A high temperature Hybrid Heat Pump from Hybrid Energy AS will contribute with savings of up to 13 GWh/year, or about 20% of Borregaard’s overall target.

The Hybrid Heat Pump will be commissioned by end of year 2016, and will recover waste heat from processes, wastewater and cooling water from the bioethanol plant. The heat will be used to preheat feedwater to the plant’s steam boiler.
