"We are happy to have been able to recruit Conny Malmkvist as the President of Bomhus Energi, which is a major environmental and energy venture for Gävle. With his experience, we feel that Conny is very well suited to the job and with him at the helm, the new company will be managed efficiently and professionally for Gävle Energi and Korsnäs," says Per Laurell, President of Gävle Energi and Chairman of the Board of Bomhus Energi.
Bomhus Energi's new bio-thermal power plant will be ready in 2013 and is being built at Korsnäs' industrial site in Bomhus, just outside Gävle. Safeguarding the building of the new environmentally sound bio-thermal furnace and building up the operational organisation will be Conny's first tasks as President.
"With Conny Malmkvist as President, I am convinced that we will see Bomhus Energi take shape and develop into precisely the forward-looking and environmentally intelligent energy company that Korsnäs wants to be involved in developing," says Christer Simrén, President and CEO of Korsnäs.
