Caverion has agreed to perform Managed Services for Söderhamn municipality and the municipality’s housing company Faxeholmen AB in Sweden. The Energy Performance Contracting (EPC) contract is worth EUR 29 million and it is the largest single EPC project implemented by Caverion in the Nordic countries. For the client, EPC service guarantees energy savings by optimising the buildings and their performance over time.
The project covers the majority of the public buildings in Söderhamn, with a total floor area of 430,000 m2. For the buildings, Caverion guarantees energy consumption reduction of at least 23% by the end of 2019. The contract covers all building systems, i.e. heating and sanitation, ventilation and air conditioning, cooling, electricity, information and communication services, security and safety and automation.
The first phase of the project is to analyse the energy consumption of the buildings. Based on the analysis, Caverion will plan and implement measures that increase the buildings’ performance and decrease the energy consumption and environmental impact. In addition, Caverion is responsible for the maintenance of the buildings and their configuration management until 2019 and guarantees the energy savings for 10 years.
“Energy efficiency significantly reduces our total environmental impact by reducing our carbon footprint. At Söderhamn municipality, we take the environment seriously and are therefore investing 280 million SEK in this project,” says Lars Stål, Technical Manager at Söderhamn Municipality.
“Cooperation, transparency and a mutual commitment to improve the standard of the public buildings from an environmental perspective, have been key elements in the preparing stages of the project. The result is a higher standard of living for the residents, improved conditions in public buildings such as schools and daycare centers, and reduced running costs for the clients,” says Thomas Lundin, Executive Vice President & CEO, Division Sweden of Caverion.
Söderhamn is a town in the Middle Norrland area in Sweden with about 25,000 inhabitants. Söderhamn municipality and Faxeholmen belongs to Caverion’s Public client segment.
