HKA 30 Biomass CHP was put into operation in August 2010 on the agricultural holding of Josef Pflügler.

Since then, the combination of wood gasifier and CHP has been supplying heat to the large residential building, a local heat network for 6 family homes, two sloping floor drying systems as well as a hop drying system.

The HKA 30 Biomass CHP was put into operation in August 2011 on the agricultural holding of Franz-Xaver Metz.

The Biomass CHP supplies heat energy to the large multi-family home, a workshop, two sloping floor drying systems, a hop drying conveyor and a pool. In addition to the Metz family, the residential building accepts up to 15 staff members over the entire year.

Landwirt Huber erzeugt aus Straßenbegleitgrün Strom und WärmeFarmer Johann Huber generates energy from roadside greenery. North of Landshut (DE) is located Johann Huber's agricultural company. The woodchip heating system installed, there was no longer able to cover the heat demand from 2011. Since Huber cultivates roadside greenery for the community and can thus use this raw material, the new heating system should be used again with wood chips. Huber has a special interest generating electricity from wood. So he installed a wood gasifier from Spanner Re².

Repowering of the wood gas CHP from 30 to 55 kWel


Due to an increasing energy demand Huber replaced his old wood gas CHP with a new one in 2018, increasing its plant output by up to 50 %.
