A total of 4 232 solar panels were lifted up averaging over 230 lifts which lasted between 06-10 on Thursday morning. AirSon Engineering project manages the project, and now remains the installation of the solar plant which is expected to be completed and in operation by the summer season.

AirSons successful energy project at Väla Centrum

March 01, 2016

Airson Engineering have since some time back offered services within the field of energy efficiency. This has led to a number of new projects for us at Airson. One of these projects is the energy efficiency work at Väla Centre, which has been going on for quite some time and have proved to be very successful.

The energy efficiency work at Väla Centre located in Helsingborg began in late 2012 and was led by Airson Engineering.  The property owner, Skandia Properties, have since project start lowered their energy consumption with a full 25 % until todays date (31 Dec 2015).

One of the first steps in the improvement work was to catalogue all installations within the property and optimize the existing installation without implementing any major investments. This optimization led alone to a reduction by approximately 14-17 % in energy consumptions.

The optimization of the plant is still underway, where further reductions of the plants energy consumption was only made possible by new investments. In 2014 began a comprehensive energy audit of the property, which charted the energy flows and installations. Possible energy reductions from a number of interesting energy saving measures were calculated and investments cost were determined. The results from the energy audit were transferred to an energy plan containing proposed energy saving measures which were to be finalized during a two-year plan. Airson has through the years followed the work and made sure each measure was implemented, by offering services as project managers and designers.

One of the most spectacular measures proposed, was the installation of Sweden’s largest solar power plant on Väla Centre roof. The project which Airson leads, goes under the name “The sun cools Väla Centre” where the annual produced energy from the solar plant is expected to cover the annual cooling demand of the building. This project is now in full swing and is expected to be finalized during summer of 2016.

 

AirSons work at Väla Centrum has received a number of interesting consequences and led to a number of pleasant news updates during the last years. Among others, the work has been appreciated and nominated to one of three finalists for the energy rate E-prize 2015, awarded in collaboration with EON and Veckans Affärer

  • The project attracted attention within the Siemens organization which invited AirSons CEO, Dan Kristensson, as keynote speaker along with Skandia Real Estate operations manager and representatives from Siemens when delegations among other Beijings mayor visited the Siemens office in Malmö.

​​

  • A retail competition was introduced at Väla Centre were annual prizes were awarded to retails which saved the most energy. The idea behind the competition was to create incentives and also inspire retails to lower their energy usage.

AirSon project manages the construction of the largest solar power plant in Sweden!

February 01, 2016

In recent years Airson has led the ambitious energy-efficiency work at Väla Centre’s mall. So far, the project has been very successful providing the property owner, Skandia properties reduced energy consumption by 25 % at the end of the year 2015/2016.

 

Now, the most spectacular of the projects that sprung from the energy-efficiency work has begun, namely the installation of the largest solar power plant on the property’s roof. The project is called “The sun cools Väla Centre” where the solar power plant is expected to produce as much energy as the cooling plants use annually. Airson conducted a pilot study during 2015 and now leads the construction of the solar power plant. The solar power plant is expected to be completed by summer 2016. The plant will have a peak power of 1 100 kW.

AirSon participated in the Sweden-Ukraine Cleantech Forum in Zhytomyr

December 15, 2015

During two days in early December AirSon attended an energy conference in Zhytomyr, a Ukrainian town west of Kiev. The conference was organized by Business Sweden, the former Swedish Trade Council, and discussed Swedish assistance to energy efficiency and energy optimization in Ukraine

 

Ukraine is a country that uses about three times as much energy as the average of the EU countries, counted to their GDP. The country is in great need of energy efficiency as the main part of the energy supply is produced from fossil fuels like coal, oil and gas.

AirSon constructs new plant for KB Components i Örkelljunga, Sweden

October 15, 2015

AirSon recently finalized the HVAC and other process installations for KB Components AB's extended plant in Örkelljunga, Sweden.

AirSon leads the pre-study for the construction of the largest solar power plant in Sweden

March 01, 2015

Airson leads the feasibility study for the construction of the largest solar power plant in Sweden on Väla Centre’s roof in Helsingborg!

 

In recent years, Airson led the work on Väla Centre’s ambitious work energy saving projects. In the autumn of 2014 Airson conducted a profound energy audit of the facility. The audit resulted in a number of energy-saving measures where a solar power plant may be seen as the most spectacular. The project is called “The sun cools Väla Centre” where the produced electricity from the solar power plant is expected to match the annual electricity use of the facilities cooling system. The feasibility study will be completed in late summer 2015 and answer the possibility of the measure.
