Wood heating for local heating systems

Are you currently planning to build or expand a heating network? Then you've come to the right place. At Heizomat, we have installed numerous heat generators for local and district heating networks. Whether it’s a peak-load or base-load boiler, a cascade or an individual system, Heizomat has the right solution and the suitable system for you.

It's a big trend: neighborhood associations, village communities and small municipalities rely on a cooperative local heating network. Heizomat helps with the planning and implementation of this project and supplies the necessary devices and control units. We remain your service partner in the long term. Whether peak load or base load boiler, whether cascade or single system - with Heizomat solutions you create security and sustainable energy generation for your customers.

Dittenheim Local Heating Cooperative

6,600m of heated pipes, 98 connection points, 26 additions planned, 103,000 liters of buffer capacity and two Heizomat RHK-AK boilers with 400 and 500kW output. These are the figures for the local heating supply in Dittenheim.

The village has 1,800 inhabitants and is located in the Weißenburg-Gunzenhausen district in central Franconia. Initial planning for a cooperative local heating network got under way in 2014. This came into operation in January 2016 and since then has been supplying almost all of Dittenheim with sustainable heat from wood chips and biogas.

Grienberger Energie

Roland Grienberger is delighted when he drives through Pollenfeld and doesn't see a single smoking chimney. That’s because he operates a biogas plant and a Heizomat RHK-AK 500 wood chip boiler.

This supplies 53 households in the Bavarian village of Pollenfeld with heat through a local heating network. Grienberger has shifted from being a traditional farmer to an energy supplier and we are proud that our products are a part of this.

Dornhausen local heating network

The planning team launched the local heating supply project in 2014 under the motto #TURNINGDORNHAUSENGREEN. They spent hours racking their brains trying to find the optimal heating system.

A mixture of biogas heat and wood chips was ultimately the most economical solution, and Dornhausen finally turned “GREEN” when we sent the first green RHK-AK 500 to the flagship village in central Franconia.

Dürrenzimmern local heating network

While the pipes for the Nord Stream gas pipeline were being laid in the Baltic Sea, a completely different idea was doing the rounds in Dürrenzimmern, a district of Nördlingen. Dürrenzimmern wanted to have CO2-neutral heating with wood chips, preferably as a heating network for the entire village.

The idea turned into a project that started in 2013 with the installation of two Heizomat RHK-AK 400s, making it one of the first heating networks in Germany based purely on wood chips.

  • 70 residential buildings connected

Once the trees have been felled, the raw material must be processed quickly. For optimal value, this also applies to small wood, tree tops and wood waste.

All aspects are considered with regard to environmentally friendly heating with woodchips - including the efficient transport of the woodchips into the bunker.

Heizotruck power packs solve even the most demanding tasks, whether in the forest or in the field. We have models for forestry and agricultural use on offer.
