Summerevent 2018

Normally, August is holiday period. But not for us! Many of our customers have annual holidays and overhaul and repair their equipment. All our specialists are required to do the annual service, to check emissions and bring the electronics up to date in order to avoid downtimes during the upcoming production period. Simultaneously, the installation and commissioning of new district heating plants are to be prepared. So absolute high season, extreme concentration and tension to all the employees is announced. Neverthereless, the culinary well-being should not be forgotten, therefore we have celebrated our annual summer party in the beginning of August. Unfortunately, not all our employees were able to come from our various European construction sites to the summer event.

A glance at the Croatian wood and sawmill industry

With the timber and forestry industry of Croatia, our company combines a long-standing, friendly cooperation. Well-known wood-processing and wood-working companies as well as forestry companies are among our customers.

Spin Valis Internacional d.o.o, a traditional Croatian company focusing on the production of high-quality furniture made of solid wood, draws a positive interim balance after a four-year operating experience with an AGRO combined heat and power plant.

Ciprijanovic d.o.o, founded in 1989 in Orhovica, also one of the most technologically advanced furniture manufacturers in Croatia operates tow AGRO boiler plants.. After the AGRO biomass combustion system installed in 2013, Ciprijanovic d.o.o again opted for an AGRO boiler system in 2017.

The STIMAC d.o.o. has been heated by an AGRO biomass boiler plant since 2012.

Kula Promet d.o.o. with Drvo Samaržija d.o.o. is currently installing a 4000 kW AGRO feed grate firing system.

Richard Stückler - a specialist in the field of mobile concrete - is investing in pellet production in Croatia. The heating will be provided by an 5 MW AGRO biomass plant. The system is scheduled to be delivered very shortly. 

Burkhardt wood gasifier conquer the Austrian market

Burkhardt gasifying technology is unstoppable entering the Austrian market. The philosophy of the Burkhardt technology, that the professional fuel treatment is left to the industry (pellet production) is increasingly accepted. The use of pellets results in plants, that easily exceed the guaranteed full operating hours of 7,500 h / year without essential supervision.

 

3 Burkhardt wood gasifiers with a total output of 495 kW/el and 780 kW/th went into operation at Nahwärme Liesingtal in St. Michael near Leoben.

Europe’s largest sawmill relies on AGRO

Europe's largest sawmill can be found in the heart of Europe: Holzindustrie Ziegler in Plößberg. The company, founded in 1948 and since then managed as a family business, cuts almost 1.8 million cubic meters of wood every year – rising tendency. The Ziegler Group with more than 700 employees operates not only in the timber industry, but also in the logistic and forestry sector. Ziegler Ambiente also emphasizes the production and sale of deco materials of all kinds.

 

Sustainability plays a particularly important role in the family business: "Everyone talks about sustainability. We put it into practice". For that reason, when planning the entire energy concept of the company, it has been very critical searched for an additional source of energy from renewable raw materials. We were involved in this process and could convince with our long-standing experience. The result is an exemplary container solution from AGRO with a 5 MW biomass boiler system, which has already proven its worth under practical conditions.
