Lohne, 12 September 2016 – From September 1st, three 526-kilowatt (kW) sites have boosted company-owned operations at EnviTec Biogas AG in Lower Saxony. With the takeover of the three biogas plants formerly operated by the agri.capital Group in Sukow, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, the Lohne-based biogas all-rounder has an output from company-owned operations of 58 MW.
Constructed in 2006 by EnviTec, the plants run on an input mix of renewable resources and liquid manure. A small heating network for heating a pigsty is already in place: an extension is planned and will be installed before the end of the year.
"As an all-rounder, the ideal combination is not merely the development of new technologies but also the operation of company-owned biogas plants," says EnviTec Group CEO Olaf von Lehmden, in explaining this capital investment. Offering regular revenue and attractive margins, company-owned operations has been a core component of EnviTec's business strategy since 2007.
