A sorting plant was built in Moskogen, in Kalmar county, to separate food and non-food waste. Holtab was responsible for the power supply to the plant.
The Moskogen facility is Kalmar county’s largest waste handling plant. It receives waste from five local municipalities, namely Kalmar, Mörbylånga, Nybro, Oskarshamn and Torsås, as well as Borgholm.
“This was a unique project for us, notes Holtab’s project manager Michael Johansson. As a rule, we build our stations at the factory in Tingsryd and supply complete buildings, but for Moskogen we built everything on site.”
The assignment was carried out in collaboration with Elcom in Karlshamn, where Holtab delivered the equipment and Elcom set up the connections.
“Our aim was to supply a state-of-the-art, robust and reliable plant that would also be user-friendly and make use of equipment from established manufacturers such as ABB, Schneider Electric, Cubic and Beijer Electronics,” says Anders Haglund, who was in charge of the account at Holtab.
“As we are not dependent on a particular manufacturer, we could choose materials we saw as being most attractively priced and user-friendly, but at the same time we insisted that they should come from established suppliers so that our customers could continue to obtain service even after the guarantee period,” observes Haglund.
Elcom’s project manager was Arne Ericsson. He is very satisfied with the collaboration.
“Yes, it worked well across the board. Holtab supplied the switchgear precisely on schedule and we installed it. The project took a good three months altogether and was not hampered by any delays or other hassles. I have to say that I am very satisfied!”
The customer’s project manager, Peter Mellbo, agrees.
“Everything worked out exactly as I had expected. Holtab is an excellent partner who is completely responsive to all our requirements. This was the first time that I personally worked with them, but I do feel we’ve had a fruitful shared experience. It’s clear that they know their business and supply high quality – in terms of both personnel and equipment.”
