"Together full of energy, take the decisive step to a successful future: That is Gammel Engineering."
On 23 April 2014, the gas-engine cogeneration plant was delivered to the BMW plant in Landshut.
The generator will generate a residual current with a continuous output of 2.68 MW. In a highly efficient cogeneration system, 2.37 MW of heat is fed into the company’s grid. The decision for the CHP module by the company GE Jenbacher was made on the basis of an open public tender, followed by an efficiency comparison over the projected duration.
The CHP is part of an overall concept for the Landshut production site with the aim of increasing energy efficiency and reducing the emission of pollutants. In conjunction with the utilization of the waste heat from the foundry and the generation of cooling via absorption chillers, BMW is thus implementing a lighthouse project in the region, which will also be a benchmark for other production sites in the automotive industry. The project is realized as an ‘Energy Saving Contract’ by a consortium consisting of the companies Siemens and Ulrich Müller with Gammel Engineering GmbH as a planning partner.
On 28 March 2014, the Energy Wood Fuel Field Day took place at the “Holmerhof” in Bad Fuessing. Gammel Engineering also participated and informed visitors about the installation of Combined Power Systems (Kombi Power System) which is currently being realised.
While the KombiPower system was being built in Bad Fuessing, the companies involved had made excellent progress. On 14 January 2014, a core element of the plant, the biomass counter-current gasifier, was lifted through the still open roof into the heating power station building. Owner Hans Köck was pleased and satisfied because the deadlines were maintained thanks to the enormous commitment of all companies involved. The quality of the plant also met the owner’s high expectations.
As technical and overall planner, Gammel Engineering planned and developed this innovative plant concept and provided all the necessary engineering services up to the commissioning. The equipment supplier and main contractor was ReGaWatt GmbH. The project manager on site, Kilian Birkeneder was an excellent coordinator of all services (see documentary clip) who also ensured that all quality requirements were met.
We wish our clients a construction period that continues without incidents or accidents!
2. Energy efficiency system at the Clinic Amberg
The engineering team at Gammel Engineering had already carried out all engineering services in 2010 in order to install a highly efficient combined heat and power unit for the clinic in Amberg. The first stage was a gas-engine combined heat and power system with an electrical output of 357 kW and a heat output of 529 kW as well as an absorption chiller unit with a cooling capacity of 320 kW. The Clinic was completely satisfied with the plant, the energy savings as well as the ecological effects. This enabled a clear decision for the second stage of the project. Due to the quality and commitment of our team, Clinic Amberg had once again decided to work together with Gammel Engineering. We are proud to have been awarded with the follow-up project - the trust placed in our company and our team - is our motivation!
A new biomass combined heat and power plant with ORC technology was installed to ensure the heat supply for the Schilling Woodworks in Schwendi. A district heating system was also supplied to the Department of Neurology in Dietenbronn. Expansion of the district heating system is being planned in order to connect further commercial and municipal objects. The spectacular architecture was designed by the star architect Matteo Thun from Milan.
As an addition to the existing heat supply, a non-profit organization, Cabrini Haus, was provided with a biomass plant including fuel for a period of one year, free of charge. Social responsibility is an integral part of our company and we are proud to have supported the Cabrini Haus Offenstetten for many years now.
A biomass heating plant was built to supply the private wheat beer brewery, Schneider in Kelheim. The entire heat requirement of the filling plant, the brewhouse and restaurant is sustainably covered through the energy concept of Gammel Engineering.
