Customer testimonials

Stockholm Exergi

“Our new biofuel-fired combined heat and power plant is truly unique and the heat and electricity production is purely based on renewable energy. It is a milestone in transforming our entire district heating system in Stockholm to be based on 100 percent renewable or recovered energy. The NIB financing played an important role in this investment as it provided long-term funding at attractive conditions.”

Kerstin Levin

CFO of Stockholm Exergi (former Fortum Värme)
