By providing more exact and thorough measurements even in low flows and air speeds, it offers major benefits in terms of energy efficiency, simplicity and cleaning. In the indoor climate solutions of the future, UltraLink will be seen as an important component, as its properties enable energy benefits that are in line with climate goals and contribute to achieving them.<br /></span><span><br />The technology behind UltraLink is based on ultrasound sensors, which means there are no protruding parts on which dirt can collect. Instead, it offers uninterrupted airflow with reduced pressure loss.<br /><br />Torbjörn Bruzelius, strategic product manager at Lindab, has this to say about the nomination:</span><span><br />&quot;It is very exciting that UltraLink is one of the four nominees. It proves that it is a solution the whole industry believes in. Our work with smart and comns is ongoing and it is naturally gratifying when an innovative solution like UltraLink receives attention.

Again this year Lindab had several representatives on site.</div> <div> </div> <h2 class="lindab-rteElement-H2">An intensive programme of good ideas</h2> <div>An intensive programme ran over four days inside the Aalborg Congress and Culture Centre. Around 1,000 visitors from every corner of the world attended. The main focus of the congress was energy efficiency and the life cycle of buildings and their ventilation systems. Presentations and discussions about the latest research within ventilation and construction technology took place simultaneously in the building's many rooms. One of the participants was Lindab's R&amp;D Manager for indoor climate solutions, professor Göran Hultmark.</div> <div> </div> <div>In an interactive workshop, led by Göran Hultmark himself, Lindab's Pascal and Solus systems were discussed, as well as what advantages both systems offer in different areas of use. The aim was, quite simply, to spark opinion and allow the participants to analyse and discuss both solutions. The discussions engaged the visitors and many of them wanted to express their views of the optimal climate system in the different conditions that were presented.</div> <div> </div> <div><strong>Article continues below</strong></div> <div><div class="ms-rtestate-read ms-rte-wpbox"><div class="ms-rtestate-notify ms-rtestate-read d872078d-21d4-482a-b1ed-103d9fbf557f" id="div_d872078d-21d4-482a-b1ed-103d9fbf557f" unselectable="on"></div> <div id="vid_d872078d-21d4-482a-b1ed-103d9fbf557f" unselectable="on" style="display:none"></div></div></div> <div> </div> <h2 class="lindab-rteElement-H2">An energy experiment involving Lindab's newly developed Solus system</h2> <div>Someone who has taken a closer look at Lindab's Solus system is Alessandro Maccarini, PhD student at the Danish Building Institute, Aalborg University, in Copenhagen. He presented his study to a large audience right before lunch on the Monday.</div> <div> </div> <div>- I talked about the Solus system and in particular a simulation experiment in which I used Modelica, which is an advanced modelling tool. What I presented was the result of the Solus system's low energy consumption compared with traditional systems.</div> <div> </div> <h2 class="lindab-rteElement-H2">More studies by Lindab employees</h2> <div>Samo Venko, a technical specialist from Lindab IMP Klima, also took part. Venko presented a study he had carried out looking at how different barriers in a room affect the flow of air. For example, a work desk. The work provides further knowledge for planning future houses. Another participant was Jan Behrens, IT Solutions Manager at Lindab. Behrens is one of the authors of a study that validated precision in TEKNOsim 5, an IT solution from Lindab, which is used to carry out thermal climate simulations indoors. TEKNOsim 5 was compared to two other simulation tools and the conclusion was that the algorithms in TEKNOsim are faultless, giving completely reliable results.</div> <div> </div> <div>By participating in congresses such as CLIMA 2016, we at Lindab have an opportunity to share our knowledge and expertise. Lindab supports good partnerships and provides the construction industry with innovative solutions which are energy efficient and which simplify processes. On our own we can do a great deal. However it is through collaboration that we as an industry can achieve the really big improvements. Therefore congresses such as CLIMA 2016 are vital for Lindab's contribution to building a sustainable future.</div> <div> </div></div> <div><b>Article date:</b> 6/14/2016 0:00</div> Fredriksson, JohanTue, 14 Jun 2016 08:17:24 GMT rolls out plug-in hybrids<div> <img alt="" src="/SiteCollectionImages/Global/News/hybrid-car-lindab.png" style="BORDER: 0px solid; "></div> <div> <p>​<font face="Calibri">Lindab's first plug-in hybrids have been on the roads for just over a month now. The driving force behind the project, which involves replacing Lindab's conventional fossil fuel driven fleet with plug-in hybrids, is Fredrik Liedholm, General Counsel, M&amp;A and HR director at Lindab.</font></p> <p><font face="Calibri">&quot;We deliberately strive to develop and market systems and products which give our users clean air, better energy efficiency and sustainable solutions,&quot; says Fredrik Liedholm, &quot;so what could be more natural than demonstrating our commitment to the environment by choosing plug-in hybrids for our own fleet of vehicles. It's easy to do wonderful PowerPoint presentations on the environment and sustainability but sometimes it's harder to actively take decisions and actually practise what you preach. We constantly keep our ears to the ground when it comes to new or improved technology, and the transition to plug-in hybrids definitely fits the bill! As far as I know, Lindab is one of the first large companies to take an active stand for sustainability in this field, which is something I think all of us at Lindab can feel proud of.&quot;</font></p> <h2 style="margin:2pt 0cm 0pt"><font size="4"><font color="#2e74b5"><font face="Calibri Light">Gradual transition to 700 plug-in hybrids</font></font></font></h2> <div style="margin:0cm 0cm 8pt"><font face="Calibri">Lindab has some 700 diesel and petrol-driven vehicles in its fleet, 200 of which are in Sweden. The decision to gradually replace these with plug-in hybrids, which emit a maximum of 50 g of carbon dioxide per kilometre (far less than conventional fossil-fuelled vehicles), has been in the pipeline for a long time. </font></div> <div style="margin:0cm 0cm 8pt"><font face="Calibri">&quot;The rollout here in Sweden is now under way and some 70 of our VW Passat GTE/Hybrids will grace Sweden's roads in the near future,&quot; continues Fredrik. &quot;We expect to have completed the transition in Sweden within three to four years, and clearly it includes all of Lindab's markets. We must have a little patience and respect for this process however, because the regulations for both businesses and users vary greatly from one European country to another.&quot;</font></div> <div style="margin:0cm 0cm 8pt"><font face="Calibri">Volkswagen has worked closely with Lindab to achieve a solution which is commercially viable for both parties. This has resulted in an initiative which demonstrates the company's active decision to support a sustainable society. Other manufacturers have also shown a keen interest in being part of this exciting development.</font></div> <h2 style="margin:2pt 0cm 0pt"><font size="4"><font color="#2e74b5"><font face="Calibri Light">Pioneering thinking on the right road</font></font></font></h2> <p><span>Lindab's new investment in plug-in hybrids has created a positive impression both on the radio and in the national press and, not unexpectedly, has been welcomed internally within the business. &quot;In my view, this step towards an environmentally friendly way of thinking and taking a holistic approach when it comes to our own vehicles too is important in terms of its symbolic value,&quot; says Bengt Andersson, Product and Market Director at Lindab and one of the first to drive a plug-in hybrid. &quot;On a purely personal note, it's a really great feeling to drive around knowing that you're having the minimum possible impact on the environment. No noise, a pleasure to drive and sustainable!&quot;</span></p> <p><span></span> </p></div> <div><b>Article date:</b> 5/19/2016 0:00</div> Fredriksson, JohanThu, 19 May 2016 08:12:26 GMT Nomination Committee in Lindab International AB (publ) proposes the election of Peter Nilsson as new Chairman of the Board<div> <p class="lindab-rteElement-P">​<span>Peter Nilsson, born in 1962, has since 2004 been Senior Industrial Advisor within the EQT sphere, whereby he has had several different positions and commisions of trust in various EQT entities.
