Project Description

NRW Pellets GmbH

Erection of a new building for the Siegen-Wittgenstein Pellet Plant

With an investment volume of some EUR 21 million, NRW Pellets GmbH, whose stockholders are RWE – Rheinische Westfälisches Elektrizitätswerk at 90% and German Pellets at 10%, realised a factory for the manufacture of wooden pellets. The heat required for the production of the pellets was supplied by the neighbouring RWE Biomass power station.

As a raw material wood from the environs of the Sauerland and Siegerland districts is used. The factory can process round timber as well as sawmill material.

The building construction works were commenced in the autumn of 2009. The erection of the plant and plant components followed in the spring of 2010, so that the works were already initially commissioned after an erection period of three months. The first pellets were pressed in June 2010, and after a brief start-up, the works were operating at full capacity from July 2010.

The pellet works has a production capacity of up to 120,000 metric tonnes of certified pellets per year. This corresponds to CO2 savings of around 100,000 metric tonnes per annum.
