For many years, the Energy Technology Unit at Savonia University of Applied Sciences in Varkaus has been conducting fuel measurements and flue gas measurements for Famifarm Ltd. in Joroinen. Flue gas measurements can be used to illustrate phenomena occurring in the combustion process. The benefits of testing services have resulted in cost savings as well as information on finding the right fuel mix. At Savonia we are pleased with the smooth cooperation. It has always been easy to come to work in the Järvikylä knowing that we will be welcomed. The plant, which is interesting in size, in its environment will also open up opportunities for cooperation in the future.
”Our goal has been to optimize the fuel mix by better understanding the properties of fuels. We have done well together with Savonia. In addition, we have been able to increase our understanding of ash and emissions issues. Collaboration has been a valuable addition to Famifarm in support of its expertise.
Järvikylä is a food brand owned by Famifarm Ltd., which markets salads and herbs produced by the company. Famifarm Oy was founded by Karl Grotenfelt, the 10th master of Järvikylä Manor in 1987, when the first greenhouse was built on the loft of the manor belonging to the same family from 1674. Today, Kale's dream of revitalizing the family farm and the surrounding countryside has come true: greenhouses work in harmony with other agricultural activities, and the Järvikylä Manor employs a total of 110 people working on Järvikylä products. Kale's children, sisters Albert and Caroline, are also actively involved in the company.
