Siemens Seeking Validation
Siemens seeks validation for 3D printed burners key to 100% renewable energy for Gothenburg
Award-winning industrial manufacturing company Siemens is in the process of validating 3D printed burners key to a fossil-free fuel initiative in Sweden. Part of a cooperation agreement between the conglomerate and Göteborg Energi, the power provider owned by the City of Gothenburg, Siemens is testing state-of-the-art gas turbine technology that enables the operation of renewable fuels. 3D printing will accelerate the development of these turbines, supporting Gothenburg’s 10-year ambition to generate all district heating from renewable or recovered energy sources.
“The Rya CHP plant plays an important role in Gothenburg’s electricity supply,” said Alf Engqvist, CEO of Göteborg Energi.
“WORKING TOGETHER WITH SIEMENS WE WANT TO EXPLORE THE POSSIBILITIES FOR THE CONVERSION OF BOTH ELECTRIC POWER AND HEAT PRODUCTION AS PIECES OF THE PUZZLE IN OUR WORK FOR FOSSIL-FREE ENERGY INDEPENDENCE.”
