Energyproduction is carried out in our central installation in the Aquarius district where the heating plant in the year 2000 was
supplemented by a Combined Heat and Power Plant in which we produce both electricity and heat. It was the first installation using the new Powerformer high voltage technology in a large scale. The production is based on biomass and the main fuel is wood chips. Thermal energy is also extracted from waste water using heatpumps, oil boilers are used for peak loads. Apart from the production in the Combined Heat and Power Plant, district heating is also produced in six other installations.

Den huvudsakliga produktionen av fjärrvärme sker vid kraftvärmeverket i Västerås, där också en hel del el produceras. I anläggningen eldas i dag i huvudsak biobränslen, torv och en mindre mängd kol. I framtiden planerar vi också för att kunna elda avfallsbränslen, allt för att åstadkomma minsta möjliga miljöpåverkan och med konkurrenskraftiga priser. Kraftvärmeverket är beläget i Västerås hamn och har därför goda förutsättningar för såväl bil, tåg som båttransporter. Totalt omvandlar vi ett normalt år närmare 3 000 GWh bränslen till el och värme och en mindre mängd kyla.
