OilonGroup Oy is Yet Again Delivering Burner Technology that Replaces Fossil Fuels to Special Waste Facilities in China
Oilon Group Oy is strengthening its position as a supplier of burner solutions to special waste incineration plants. This time, Oilon won the new contract for the international waste treatment company Suez. Established in 1880, the Suez Environment Group is the world’s leading water utility company. Its headquarters are in France, and the company has cutting-edge technology in the field of environmental protection. Their business is centred on environmental protection equipment and services. This includes drinking water production and distribution, wastewater treatment, and waste recycling and disposal.
Oilon is supplying a solution to Suez’s installation in Changzhou, China. The installation is a joint venture between Suez and China Everbright International Ltd, and it is located in the city of Changzhou in Jiangsu province.
Oilon’s scope of supply includes three burners, as well as valve and automation units. These make up the main technology of the installation, allowing the incineration plant to burn waste with as few emissions as possible. The value of the order is over one million euros. All in all, Oilon has delivered over 30 of this kind of burner solution to special waste incineration plants around the world.
This project meets China’s strict emission standards, which are equivalent to those in Europe. The safety of the plant has also been ensured in accordance with the strictest international requirements. The energy that is produced will be utilised in regional energy production, reducing the use of fossil fuels.
Earlier this year, Oilon won a similar order from a big corporation named Veolia, which operates in several countries and in many areas of environmental technology. Veolia’s project was sold to Changzhou Jihuan Veolia Environmental Service Ltd. The plant operates in Changzhou city in Heibei province. Oilon will deliver two incineration technology solutions to this plant that are similar to the ones for the recent Suez deal.
The company that made the deal was Oilon’s Chinese company, Oilon Burners Wuxi Co. Ltd. Sami Pekkola, managing director of Oilon’s Chinese operations, is happy in the new business opportunity that opened up three years ago, and he sees these special waste incineration plants as a good addition to Oilon’s other burner business. In general, the equipment supplied has been directed at replacing coal with gas in remote heating and steam production. The Chinese requirements for burning gas, particularly in Beijing, demand 70% lower emissions than in Europe in general.
Founded in 1961, Oilon is a Finnish family-owned energy and environmental technology company. Oilon manufactures burners and combustion systems for liquid and gaseous fuels and industrial heat pumps and cooling plants.
Addition to US, Oilon has production facilities in Finland and China. The company has sales offices in Russia, Brazil, and United States as well as resellers in more than 30 countries. Over 60% of Oilon’s revenue comes from foreign operations.
