Environment and energy

The world/Germany is in the middle of the energy transition, and we are involved in the development of concepts and the realization of energy-optimized projects in many locations.

We make sure that energy potential is being utilized in a professional manner and find ways to involve the general public. We promote renewable resources and are also the perfect partner for realizing a photovoltaics plant on a waste disposal site. If you have questions on both central and decentralized supply systems, we are the ones with the right solution for you.

Environmental protection requires a good basis. We can give you this basis in the form of environmental impact studies, special assessments taking into account the laws governing the protection of species or water development plans for renaturation projects. Another area of our expertise is in the waste management sector and the operation of waste disposal sites. The issues here are potential hazards, post-treatment and modern technologies allowing for an optimized utilization of the resulting gases.

Clarifier of the company sewage plant     mehr Info...

Contractor: Molkerei Meggle Wasserburg GmbH & Co. KG
Measure: New construction

Since sewage volumes increase every year and the company Meggle intends to drain all vapour condensate that is generated during production into its own sewage plant, the waste water treatment performance must be increased. To increase capacities, the existing sewage plant was extended by a new clarifier, a circular tank with horizontal flow with a diameter of 28 m. Additionally, new connections were planned to operate all tanks linked to each other. To guarantee optimum distribution, regulating and distributing constructions were planned as well.

Trades and work phases:
  • Preliminary investigation, planning and realization of civil engineering measures
  • Safety and health coordination (SiGeKo)
General drainage scheme Bad Griesbach     mehr Info...

Contractor: Bad Griesbach
Measure: General drainage scheme and geo information system

Calculation of the current condition of the sewer system with rain volumes that recur every two years. After the investigation, the sewers that are flooded in this scenario were defined as in need of renovation and the requirement was issued that they must meet the requirements of rain volumes recurring every three years.

Water tank renovation Ebersberg     mehr Info...

Contractor: Ebersberg
Measure: Renovation

The inside of the water tank Ebersberg was renovated to increase the supply safety and to guarantee hygienic conditions. The inner surfaces of the water tank (3,000 m3) had been damaged by hydrolysis and had to be renovated. The tubing of the water tank was removed during renovation and pickled in a full bath. The existing coating on the inside surfaces of the water tank was removed with high pressure water jets and damage to the concrete and reinforcement repaired where necessary. Subsequently, a new mineral coating was applied.

Trades and work phases:
  • Concept for renovation
  • Civil engineering works: WPH 1 – 9

Waste disposal Steinmühle Mitterteich     mehr Info...

Contractor: District Tirschenreuth
Measure: Bottom and surface sealing

The Steinmühle waste disposal is a class I waste disposal for household and industrial waste of approx. 20 ha. The entire project was divided into several sections to modernize the landfill to the current state-of-the-art standard. The building measures for the bottom and surface sealing were carried out with Trisoplast and a filter layer from different materials (gravel and drainage membrane).

Trades and work phases:
  • Bottom sealing: WPH 1 – 9
  • Surface sealing: WPH 1 – 4
Mathiasgrube Schwandorf waste disposal     mehr Info...

Contractor: Special purpose association waste management Schwandorf
Measure: Bottom and surface sealing

The waste disposal in Schwandorf has a total area of 17 ha and is a class I as well as class II waste disposal. It contains household waste, industrial waste and construction waste. The challenge of the project was that the large open surfaces generated the corresponding amount of seepage water and that at the same time the surface of the waste disposal had to be used. A further element of the project was the new construction, the drilling and the renovation of three seepage water pumping shafts. A special feature of this waste disposal was the bottom drainage and waste disposal gas monitoring carried out with selective passive gas collection of methane oxidation.

Disposal and recycling center Passau-Hellersberg     mehr Info...

Contractor: Special purpose association Waste management Donau-Wald GmbH
Measure: New construction

The new construction of the disposal and recycling center Passau-Hellersberg is a logistic waste management center for the southern area of the special purpose association for waste management (approx. 260,000 people). The new premise consists of the reception with sorting and improved transport for recyclable materials, hazardous and toxic waste. There is also room for the composting of organic waste from compost bins and garden waste as well as for construction waste processing.

Energy utilization plan for the district Straubing-Bogen     mehr Info...

Contractor: District Straubing-Bogen
Measure: Energy utilization plan

Energy utilization plan for the district Straubing-Bogen with 37 municipalities. During the construction, a property and potential analysis was carried out and a concept developed to realize the implementation. In a following workshop, it was possible to answer questions about central and decentral options for heat supply as well as the question about the economic feasibility of various measures. As a result four concrete measures were worked on in a second expert workshop to bring them closer to implementation.
