A `classic` for agriculture - case study
A 500 kW-Biogas plant (typical to its kind in every regard) is located in Gehlenberg. There, 500 kW were legally defined as the permissible maximum limit value for agricultural operations. In Gehlenberg, the competent consulting services provided by bwe attracted particularly positive attention. After all, the plant (operational since 2006) is impressive in its high degree of overall efficacy and in its implemented heat-utilisation concept. The Esters family – who utilises the generated energy to supply heat to their chicken-mast stalls (among other places) – operates this plant. As input materials, this family-operated business utilises corn and chicken manure. With that, a comprehensive system was implemented. A gas-powered motor manufactured by Jenbacher provides for trouble-free operations in this area.
