About Climeon AB (publ)
Climeon provides a technology that uses the energy in waste heat from industries and low-temperature geothermal heat to generate electricity. The Company received its first order in 2015 and has since then built up a customer base consisting of Viking Line, Virgin Voyages/Fincantieri, Maersk Line, CP Energy and SSAB, among others. It has now reached a stage where it has proven its technology and its commercial marketability through repeat orders from leading players in a number of industries. The product is protected by patents and offers market-leading performance within its areas of application. Climeon has also built a scalable organisation with a high production capacity and an experienced management team primed for growth.
Climeon’s market and focus segments
Waste heat and geothermal energy (below 120°C) jointly comprise a vast energy source that today is largely untapped due to limitations of existing technologies. Climeon's product is the first heat recovery system to be able to utilise this previously unexploited source of energy on a large scale to produce electricity. The Company has therefore the opportunity to enter in a new market with limited competition. Climeon is currently focusing on four market segments: maritime, steel and cement production, genset (generators) and geothermal energy.
