Holzwerke Weinzierl

As already reported in September, the company Holzwerke Weinzierl relies on the innovative technology of AGRO Forst & Energietechnik and covers its growing energy demand with 2 new mobile AGRO container plants with a capacity of 2 x 2.4 MW / th. We do not want to hide from you some great pictures of the plant in operation:

Ligna 2017

We could welcome a lot of visitors on the exhibition Ligna 2017 – most famous exhibition in the wood and sawmill industry – in  Hannover. Very interested people from more than 23 countries in the world wanted to be informed about energy production with renewable resources.

In the evening, the day ended in a magnificent ambience on the banks of the river Leine with our representatives from Central, Southern and Northern Europe, North America and China.

JOWA – Enjoyment with a clear conscience

For more than 80 years, the name JOWA has stood for diversity, enjoyment and reliability. JOWA bread comes every day fresh to every third table in Switzerland. And that is not without reason: At JOWA it is baked with passion and pride.

As the leading bakery in Switzerland JOWA, a subsidiary of Migros, is investing in a sustainable and future-oriented energy supply. After a smooth construction period of only eight months, JOWA is commissioning the new wood-fired heating plant with AGRO Turbo Challenger and AGRO thermal oil boiler in Gränichen. JOWA saves 3,000 tonnes of CO2 per year. This corresponds to the average energy consumption of 566 four-person households per year - according to the sustainability motto "Enjoyment with a clear conscience".

The wood heating system ensures the continuous heat supply and covers 60 percent of the energy demand of the entire bakery in Gränichen. Natural gas is still used for the energy peaks. The wood used for the heating system comes from sustainably managed forests from the region. Heating with wood is CO2-neutral. The burning of wood releases the same amount of CO2 as the trees remove from the atmosphere during their growth.

Holzwerke Weinzierl – Start of assembly

In the end of August we started to deliver and install the two new AGRO container plants at Holzwerke Weinzierl in Vilshofen / Bavaria. The company Holzwerke Weinzierl, existing in the fourth generation, is one of the largest Bavarian wood processors. The growing need for energy will be covered, together with the existing heating plants and CHP's by 2 new AGRO container plants. The excellent integration of the boilers in the existing fuel logistics enables a particularly efficient operation.

Jurmala - Latvia

Located directly on the Baltic coast is the beautiful city of Jurmala, a preferred recreation area of residents of the capital Riga. The long white beach, the Baltic Sea promenade, restaurants and excellent hotels not only invite for short stays in the summer.

Jurmala distinguishes a strict environmental concept — guests need a special permission to go by car to the health resort. The district Bulduri, formerly Bilderlingshof, was before 1914 “the” spa of the Baltic High Society. One rediscovers the ancient traditions. After very careful checks, reference visits and detailed planning only an AGRO biomass plant came into question for the new environmentally friendly energy concept.

Finally, the consulting and service skills of our Latvian contractor Inos – Riga led to the final decision of the investment.
