Sägewerk Schwaiger

Sustainable and careful handling with the forest stock, the basic understanding of nature and the responsibility for next generations characterizes the overall concept of the sawmill Schwaiger.

The sawmill has been owned and operated by the family Schwaiger for three generations, was founded a hundred years ago near the center of Hengersberg and is now one of the largest sawmills in Germany. A constellation of sawmills, a biomass heating plant and a pellet factory, which is coordinated to one another, provides an optimal result regarding the CO2 balance and primary energy consumption.

After the sawmill Schwaiger put in 2014 two AGRO container plants with an output of 2 x 2.5 MW / th and an AGRO thermal oil boiler plant with 15 MW / th and 3 MW / el in operation, now an additional AGRO thermal oil boiler plant with 10.5 MW / th and 1,5 MW / el covers the growing energy demand.
