Plant Optimisation

Changed market conditions and a glance into the future require adjustments to biogas plants. The plant efficiency can be effectively improved through systematic plant conversion or replacement of basic components.

After creating a needs analysis, WELTEC BIOPOWER optimises the biogas plants with individual repowering blocks that are determined under consideration of the specific plant, needs, licence and financial means. We also provide guidance concerning the use of premiums and bonuses and deliver feasibility studies.
