About two-thirds of the Republic of Korea is wooded. The stock of wood offers great potential for climate- and environment-friendly energy production. For this reason, representatives from the South Korean Ministry of Forestry visited Spanner Re² GmbH - the world market leader in the field of wood-based combined heat and power plants - in Neufahrn, Lower Bavaria. More than 700 wood-fired power plants are already in operation and reliably generate electricity and heat from wood. The patented wood-force technology with over 20,000,000,000 operating hours of experience encouraged the ministry's representatives to work with Re²'s South Korean sales partner to pave the way into the energy future.

. A new subsidy system may come im 2018 for the green island. So we showed our Biomass CHP at the Hub in Kilkenny. Many farmers and other businesses where interested in our CHP technology. All sizes from our small HKA 10 to our new HKA 70 have been from interest for the visitors. Even the use of woodgas as fuel for existing diesel generators was a asked topic. One more sucessfull step for Re2 into a new market.
With more than 500 exhibitors and 50,000 visitors from 50 different countries, the Elmia Wood is the largest international trade fair for forestry in the world. It happens every four years in the forests south of the Swedish town of Jönköping.
The Spanner Re2 GmbH will present its biomass CHP at stand 309. The technology of using Wood Chips to produce electricity and heat has generated a lot of of interest.
Many international guests, such as forestry business, wood chip traders or sawmill owners from Mexico, Colombia, Russia, Poland, Finland, United Kingdom, Turkey, France and many other countries, had visited the stand of Spanner Re2 GmbH and got informed about the new technology of generating environmentally friendly energy from wood.
The Japanese community of Kawaba and the forestry community Gunma can now independently produce electricity and heat from wood with the EnergyBlock from Spanner Re² GmbH. The Bavarian manufacturer have developed a complete “ready to use” solution which provides reliable and sustainable energy. The opening ceremony of the new EnergyBlock took place on May 9th.
The innovative EnergyBlock has been up and running since April of this year. The total operational solution includes Biomass CHP (Combined Heat and Power), coordinated conveying and discharge technology as well as a fully automatic wood chip drying plant. Due to the factory pre-installation and the ingenious "Plug & Play" system, the EnergyBlock started operation only two months after delivery.
The Biomass CHP has a power output of 45 kWel and 102 kWth, located in a 40 foot container. The electricity generated will be sold to private customers in Tokyo and fed into the public electricity grid for compensation. The resulting heat is used for drying the wood and for running a greenhouse in Kawaba.
This is a local project that will benefit the whole region. The community of Kawaba founded the company "Woodvillage Kawaba" to take over the plant operation and the wood used to fuel the EnergyBlock is generated only by local forest management.
"Kawaba´s total forest area covers 83 percent of the region. With this initiative, we want to push the progess of our community and to present a model for the further development of Japan", said Mayor Kyotaro Toyama at the opening ceremony. The pilot project of the community of Kawaba and the forestry community of Gunma has been well received.
"All the participants who are involved are excited, it’s fun to see the result - a solid technique is of course a requirement for this. As a manufacturer in Japan, we are close to the customer and - understand the natural environmental and social conditions. This understanding is jey to the success of the project and we will continue to focus on these factors for continued future success", said Dr. Oskar Bartenstein, Managing Director of Japan-based Spanner KK subsidiary.
We are the market leaders of the wood based biomass CHP industry.
As one of the first companies to operate in this industry, we have produced our Wood-Chip-Dryers in mass for many years – and all of them are made in Germany. Our extensive experience and knowledge means our patented woodchip technology is consistently reliable with proven running hours.
From 9 kWel to 1MWel – we provide you with a solution that is perfectly matched to your energy demand. As a result of the modular composition of the units you can combine several wood-chip-dryers to build a scalable deployment to suit your unique business model.
We support you in planning and provide everything from one source – from the wood-chip-dryer, to perfectly balanced dryer- and conveyor systems, to turn-key container solutions.
Once you become part of the unique and strong Re² community, you can connect directly with other operators and our specialised personnel to share and exchange knowledge.
Our units produce completely clean and weather-independent energy only from wood – a local, CO2-noncomitted fuel. That means you can reduce your long term energy costs and avoid having to use expensive imported fossil material.
In the first weeks of 2017 the wood-power plants were already presented at trade fairs and the wood gas technology was explained in detail.
The Spanner Re² was also represented at LAMA in Peterborough (UK's largest agricultural fair with 900 exhibitors). In United Kingdom, more than 100 plants have already been put into operation in 2016, and the Spanner Re² trade fairs 2017 still have strong demand and many sales in 2017.
Re² was also represented at Energy Now in Telford, UK, at the RegioAgrar in Augsburg, as well as at the Energiesparmesse in Wels.
