North Norwegian Defence

Mobile systems warm the Norwegian soldiers

During 2013, Linka delivered three mobile systems to the Norwegian Defence Forces, located at three of their bases in northern Norway.

Linka was commissioned to supply three mobile systems to the Northern Norwegian Forsvarsbygg, which is responsible for maintaining and procuring properties for the Norwegian defence.

The equipment was delivered to three different bases in northern Norway in hard-to-reach areas. This makes mobile plants ideal, as they are built in containers, which are delivered and erected by a crane on a prepared concrete foundation.

Høybuktmoen Leir

The Linka mobile plant provides heat for the base, which is located in northern Norway on the border with Russia. The base houses, among other things, the Border Company, which is tasked with monitoring the Norwegian-Russian border.

The heat comes primarily from a 3,000 kW biomass boiler, with a 4,500 kW oil boiler as backup, both located in one of two containers. In the second container there is a chip store with a scraper system, including six scrapers, from which the chips are transported to boiler containers. The fuel container is built sunken, which ensures quick and easy filling of wood chips.

Bodin & Trondenes Leir

The complete, turnkey heating plants in Bodin and Trondenes Leir, both consist of two containers.

The boiler plant, with a 2,500 kW hot water boiler and an oil backup, is located in one of the two containers. The boiler is designed for wood chips, which are a cheap form of biofuel in Norway.

The fuel container consists of a scraper system that conveys the chips from the storage to a cross auger, which conveys the chips to the boiler via augers. Both fuel containers, like the one in Höybuktmoen, are built submerged.
