Cortus Energy testlevererar syngas till bandugn hos Höganäs AB30.5.2023 17:15:28 CEST | Pressemelding
Cortus har de senaste två veckorna på dagtid levererat syngas till Höganäs bandugn för intrimning av brännarsystem inför kommande driftprover. Intrimningen har gått bra och följs upp med drift och utbildning av driftspersonal under de kommande veckorna. Testleveransen av syngas till en av Höganäs bandugnar är det första steget i att ersätta fossil naturgas med syngas i Höganäs AB:s produktion inom ramen för det samarbete som startades för sex år sedan mellan Cortus och Höganäs. När utbildning av driftspersonal är klar och produktionen är redo kan dagtidstesterna övergå i långtidstester och förhoppningsvis kontinuerliga syngasleveranser. Om allt går som planerat kan det här påbörjas under andra halvan av augusti i år. ”Detta är en glädjens dag för oss på Cortus och en belöning efter alla de vedermödor som varit kring vår WoodRoll® -anläggning. Vi vill också uttrycka vår tacksamhet till alla på Höganäs AB för deras stora tålamod”, säger Rolf Ljunggren, grundare och t f VD i Cortus Energy
