In 2015, the WELTEC Group had acquired two biomethane refineries. Now the company has taken the
next step on its growth path: In January 2016, Nordmethan GmbH, a subsidiary of the plant manufacturer WELTEC BIOPOWER, purchased an existing biogas plant in Falkenhagen, Brandenburg, Germany.
Following the fundamental technical and administrative restructuring and modernisation, the currently decommissioned Falkenhagen biogas plant is expected to resume operations towards the end of 2016. Upon go-live, the plant with its five digesters, five post-digesters, five digestate storage units and six combined heat and power (CHP) plant will generate 3.3 MW of electricity. The power will be fed into the public power grid, and the exhaust heat from the CHP plant is to be used for the digestate drying process.
Jens Albartus, Director of WELTEC BIOPOWER and of Nordmethan, is confident that these measures will
enable economically successful operation of the biogas plant in Falkenhagen. If things develop as expected, the WELTEC Group might decide to expand its biomethane refinery and
biogas plant operations.
“Our strength lies in the scope of our group: The array of WELTEC BIOPOWER and Nordmethan is capable of covering the entire biogas value chain from the planning stage to permanent operation“, explains Albartus.
