WELTEC Opened Sales Office in Magdeburg
The new office in the „House of Agriculture“ in the state capital of Saxony-Anhalt enables more customer proximity for improved local customer care. Like the headquarters in Vechta, the Magdeburg office also offers the entire bandwidth of customer care, from initial yield estimates, offers, and feasibility calculations to support for the grid access, gas sales, and financing. Moreover, Magdeburg is not far from the biomethane plants in Könnern and Barsikow. Thus, potential operators and prospective customers from the vicinity can easily be offered on-site plant tours.
The amendments to the German Renewable Energies Act (EEG), which will come into force in 2012, are another reason for the establishment of the new sales office. Among other things, the objective of the changes is to improve the profitability of large biomethane plants. Due to this new situation, a large number of biomethane plants on the basis of renewable raw materials are expected to settle in spacious regions of the new federal states. Apart from biomethane plants, conventional CHP plants (renewable raw materials or waste) and special concepts for manure plants (including those larger than 75 kW) will also be handled from Magdeburg.
German-based WELTEC BIOPWER celebrates it’s 10th anniversary and is one of the pioneers of the constructors of biogas plants. Based on the modern approach of experienced engineers, the company from Vechta (Lower Saxony) with its expertise of a staff of close to 80, offers complete biogas plants from one source and has developed to a leading constructor of biogas plants in the world.
One of the main strengths of the medium-sized enterprise is the ability to deliver individual and flexible solutions – from compact plants to large computer-controlled plants in the megawatt range, waste recycling plants, and biogas parks with gas processing technology. The plants have a modular structure. WELTEC BIOPOWER uses only proven system components and develops most of the technologies along the entire value chain internally: fermenter technology, mixing technology, control technology, hygienisation systems, and digestate processing solutions originate from the company.
As the hydrogen sulphide and ammonia compounds contained in biogas corrode unprotected parts, WELTEC builds the fermenters from stainless steel. This ensures a long useful life of the plant. The manufacturing depth also guarantees a consistently high standard regardless of the location and ensures an export rate that is far above the industry average.
In 2010, the plants of WELTEC received the „DLG FokusTest“ certification from the German Agricultural Association (DLG) in recognition of their excellent biogas yield.
