Finnish technology company Caligo Industria has inked a 1.2 million-euro deal to deliver a 9.5 MW flue gas scrubber system to Dalkia SA in Tours, France.

The deal represents a significant breakthrough for the company’s greater access to the European market.

“We are the market leader in our special know-how field in Finland,” says Caligo CEO, Juha Järvenreuna. “The deal with Dalkia is, above all, a strategic step for us in our internationalisation. We are the only company globally that has delivered flue gas scrubbers with integrated heat pumps in such volumes as a basic product line. I believe this is why Dalkia trusted us.”

The Caligo scrubber removes Sulphur compounds from the flue gasses produced by biomass heating plants, reduces particle emissions significantly and recovers heat efficiently. It is particularly well suited to plants that make use of wet wood chips or peat. The most marked savings are achieved when the technology reduces the use of oil or natural gas during peak demand periods.

The largest part of the system will be delivered in 2018.
