Successful participation at Exhibition in Mariestad

Approx. 10.000 people visited the “Bomässan-exhibition” in Mariestad between Feb. 23 – Feb. 25 making the event a formidable success. Nilsson Energy had the great opportunity of meeting customers and the general public face to face discussing energy solutions for present and future energy system solutions.

In addition to meeting the general public in the exhibition showroom, Hans-Olof Nilsson gave two public talks during the event. These gained lots of positive feedback from the crowd and since they were delivered in co-operation with VänerEnergi (Mr. Harald Bouma) and the Swedish Hydrogen Association (Mr. Björn Aronsson) the attendees were given an holistic view on energy solutions including hydrogen. Mr. Nilsson spoke in a very pragmatic manner about how a Nilsson Energy solution “RE8760” works and illuminated the different applications that are currently being developed and built in Mariestad and Vårgårda.

Nilsson Energy would like to extend a warm “thank you!” to the organisers of the Exhibition, the municipality of Mariestad, VänerEnergi and the Swedish Hydrogen association for providing such a fruitful event.

Meet Nilsson Energy in Mariestad at “Bomässan” Novab Arena Feb. 23 – 25

Nilsson Energy will be represented at the public exhibition “Bomässan” at Novab Arena in Mariestad Friday Feb. 23 – Sunday Feb. 25.

Please visit us at exhibition showroom No. 111 where we will be highlighting the possibilities a hydrogen society is bringing. Nilsson Energy will be sharing the task together with Mariestad´s municipality, Swedish Hydrogen Association and UNESCO/Biosphere.

Hans-Olof Nilsson will be giving two talks on Friday and Saturday sharing his experience as a system integrator as well as highlighting the current projects being realized in Mariestad.

Game-changing solar powered, onsite emission-free hydrogen production unit is being built in Mariestad, Sweden

Mariestad is an international model area for sustainable social development. Now, the municipality, the local energy company VänerEnergi and the company Nilsson Energy are building an innovative energy system for solar powered hydrogen production to the already established hydrogen station next to highway E20. The investment ensures that the hydrogen produced onsite in Mariestad is completely renewable and emission-free. The solar radiation over the solar cell park will also be able to be longterm stored in hydrogen to be used when the sun is not shining by producing electricity and heat through fuel cell technology.

On November 23, it was announced that the company Nilsson Energy won the contract to build an independent off-grid hydrogen production plant connected to the existing hydrogen fueling station in Mariestad municipality. The parties met in the town hall in Mariestad on December 6th to sign the agreement and informed the assembled media about the revolutionary energy system.

Nilsson Energy has been contracted to build an off-grid energy system solution, including onsite hydrogen production for continuous refueling of the hydrogen fueling station, built next to the highway E20 in Mariestad. The contract also includes building a solar park, whose solar energy constitutes the fuel for the system. Through the investment, it is ensured that the hydrogen produced is completely renewable and emission-free. Technical leader and Founding Father of Nilsson Energy, Mr. Hans-Olof Nilsson, renowned energy pioneer, is passionate about renewable off-grid energy systems. Together with his colleagues Mr. Pontus Lundgren and Mrs. Martina Wettin, Hans-Olof Nilsson expresses his excitement about building the world unique energy system in Mariestad.

– Nilsson Energy is the supplier of complete energy systems that are easy for the customer to use. We have the “recipe” for harvesting solar and wind energy, adding water and building completely self-sufficient energy system solutions for all types of energy consumers. As in Mariestad’ s case, it can be about mobility, but we are equally happy to provide housing, business and / or industrial environment solutions. Being the first in the world contracted to build an off-grid hydrogen fueling station “fed” by the sun is obviously fun and important. The way a municipality and the local energy company VänerEnergi, now shows leadership, is also exciting, says Hans-Olof Nilsson, founder and partner in Nilsson Energy

In close cooperation with its component suppliers, Nilsson Energy is now prepared for at rapid expansion for its stationary and modular energy system solutions RE8760.

– There will be more exciting projects soon. Establishing and exporting emission-free and easy-to-use renewable energy system solutions, including recycling of water if the customer so demands due to water-shortage feels very important. Together with its subcontractors and partners, Nilsson Energy will hopefully also soon be a strong export product in line with Mariestad’ s desire for new industrialization initiatives.

Stored energy provides multiple uses

The new energy system enables Mariestad to produce solar energy and by Power-to-Gas do seasonal storage in hydrogen, 100 percent renewable. The hydrogen will initially be used primarily for the refueling of fuel cell vehicles.

-Hydrogen is an excellent medium for long-term storage of energy. It is both economical and safe. Excess hydrogen can also produce electricity and feed the grid, as a power reserve if the need arises. In event of a crisis, we can also lean against a stored hydrogen reserve, explains Harald Bouma, Project Coordinator, VänerEnergi AB.

Sweden’s first off-grid pre-schools

The solar cell park and the energy system solution at the hydrogen fueling station will be in place late autumn 2018. At the same time, project preparations have been initiated to build two pre-schools with innovative renewable energy systems. The two schools will be selfsufficient, or at least partly self-sufficient, using solar power. The surplus of energy might also be stored in hydrogen and be converted via fuel-cell technology during the dark autumn and winter months.
