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.
Sustainable energy concept with biomass power plants for electricity and heat generation from wood
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.
