Alpine Mayreder Altweitra

Boiler output: 2 x 10,700 kWth (5,000 kWel)

Combustion system: hydraulic reciprocating step grate

Fuel: wood chips, bark, sawdust

Year of construction: 2007

Location: Austria

Project description:

The three steam cogeneration plants are located in the north of Lower Austria, in the Waldviertel area.

The plant located in Altweitra is a high-pressure super-heated steam boiler plant, constructed as a double-boiler plant. The thermal output of the boilers is 2 x 10,700 kW (fire tube boilers with 23 bar, 420°C). This plant produces 5,000 kWel via a steam turbine. The produced electrical output is fed into the local power grid. Part of the thermal waste heat is designated for an adjacent concrete plant.
