Wellness hotel generates energy from wood chips
Hotel Taljörgele in the Ridnauntal/Eisacktal in South Tyrol has been covering its heat and electricity requirements with wood chips since January 2014. Each of the three HKA 45 plants has already operated for about 8,400 hours in the first year. 8,500 hours have been exceeded in 2015 resulting in a plant availability of more than 97 % per year. The hotel alone requires 280 kW in heat energy.
Run by the Mühlmann family, the 155-bed Leitlhof is one of the few hotel properties in Europe to be completely self-sufficient in terms of energy, producing and using its own energy efficiently. The Leitlhof has set itself the task of taking action here and producing electricity and heat independently and in a climate-neutral manner using wood chips. The short distances involved mean the woodchip production process is also environmentally-friendly.
"We rely on the duo Spanner Re² and HDG for our wellness hotel. Since then we have not only been self-sufficient and independent of oil and gas speculation, but also, as the saying goes, sustainable," says Herbert Stemp, Managing Director of Landhotel Stemp.

"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.
