Markus Karevaara has joined HögforsGST's sales team as Key Account Manager. Karevaara will be responsible for HögforsGST's energy accounts in Finland.
HögforsGST continues its strong growth journey by acquiring a district heating substations business, including a team of dedicated experts from Swedish heat exchanger manufacturer SWEP International AB. The acquired part concerns SWEP's Business Unit Systems in Gothenburg which has primarily served utility companies and the substation business in Sweden and Norway.
Improving efficiency in district heating isn't done only by investing in power plants but also by lowering the temperature level of the network. District heating companies also aim to lower the temperature of the return water. However, the latter largely depends on the energy companies' collaboration with their customers.
HögforsGST has appointed Petteri Tarkio as their Sales Director. Tarkio will be responsible for managing and developing HögforsGST's sales in the Finnish market.

Unis 100-1RF wall mounted substation is the latest addition to the Unis product family. Unis 100-1RF substation contains a single circuit to produce the hot water required by the heating network. The Unis 100-1RF substation is ideally suited as an additional circuit alongside an existing substation, as well as for independent heating, for example, in properties where there is no need for domestic hot water.
