Ernströmgruppen acquires geothermal energy company MuoviTech


Ernströmgruppen acquires 90.1% of shares in the MuoviTech group.
MuoviTech, which has its headquarters in Brämhult, near Borås in Sweden, and subsidiaries in several European countries, is a market leader in manufacturing of collector systems for geothermal energy applications such as renewable heating solutions with ground source heat pumps. The company drives innovation and most sales come from internally developed and patented solutions. In 2020, revenues amounted to SEK 275 million, with good profitability.

The need to take responsibility for the climate and, in line with the EU’s stated ambition, to make Europe carbon emission neutral by 2050, is strongly driving the geothermal energy market. Sweden and the Nordics are leaders in geothermal energy and there is a growing market in Europe. Geothermal energy-based system solutions can extract both heating and cooling and provide seasonal energy storage, which becomes more important with a growing share of intermittent energy production.

Renewable geothermal energy provides low energy consumption and life cycle cost for both residentials and commercial properties. With hybrid systems, where geo energy is combined with solar, environmentally friendly and cost competitive cooling and heating solutions are created. A good example comes from Drammen, Norway (see video in Norwegian:

MuoviTech supplied the geothermal collectors and Ernströmgruppen’s subsidiary SGP Armatec the solar thermal collectors.

“MuoviTech is an example of a company that is an excellent fit for us. They are driven entrepreneurs, have strong market positions and international potential in a business that helps green the planet. We look forward to developing the market and the business together with MuoviTech’s skilled and entrepreneurial people,” says Alexander Wennergren-Helm, CEO of Ernströmgruppen.

“When the world is making major investments to prevent the climate crisis, we see big opportunities to develop our business model to meet the future needs of renewable climate-neutral energy. In Ernströmgruppen, we get long-term owners who can support us in that ambition,” says Kari Ojala, founder and COO of MuoviTech AB.
