Wood gasifier in Austria | References
Since 2020, two Spanner Re² wood gasifiers in Neudau, Austria, have been supplying a local heating network from Green Energy Bio Wärme with environmentally friendly heat and green electricity. This is because the plant from Spanner Re² is based on the principle of cogeneration, i.e. unlike a classic boiler, the wood-fired power plants from Re² not only generate heat, but also electricity.
After implimenting its innovative energy solution, the Lower Austrian municipality of Kirchschlag is a leading role model for many other regions in the country. With a CHP cascade from Spanner Re² and two biomass boilers, the municipality generates electricity and heat from regional wood chips,supplying hundreds of households with CO2-neutral energy.
"In the first year alone, the plant ran for 8,240 hours. We use wood power to generate clean energy for our boarding house and a local heating network, and on top of that, we have a further source of income from the wood chip drying", Obernosterer family.
The appropriately styled pension "Haus Blatthofer" is located in the beautiful Lesach Valley. Ten beds in apartments - some of them completely furnished - offer a pleasant wellness holiday in a typical rural style. Besides, the HKA 30 wood cogeneration plant supplies heat to a local heat network for ten private homes and the drying hopper.
