Jernforsen Energy is Trosa Energi’s supplier of the loading bay equipment at the heating plant. The company has been using Hardox® wear plate for at least 40 years now and knows the steel’s qualities well. Since Jernforsen specializes in equipment for heating plants and sawmills, it is no stranger to corrosive environments.
“We have specified Hardox® HiAce when there is both corrosion and wear, and it has shown excellent performance in those applications. In this case, we used it for the loading bay, but we’re also looking to use Hardox® HiAce in other applications that will benefit from the steel’s corrosion resistance. The fact that it’s as easy to bend and weld as Hardox® 450 makes for an easy switch to Hardox® HiAce,” says Henrik Fransson, after sales coordinator at Jernforsen Energy. “The maintenance costs for our customers are substantially lower with Hardox® HiAce, such as for Trosa Energi, which doesn’t have to replace the floor of its loading bay as frequently.”
