The new steam generation plant at Reflex GmbH & Co. KG was inaugurated in Düren, Germany. The plant supplies the paper mill, which has a rich tradition, with steam, as the company says in the press release received by Lesprom Network.
The energy service provider GETEC heat & power AG planned, financed and constructed the energy generation plant on a contracted basis, and will also provide additional energy services for several years.
In February 2015 the paper mill was taken over by German investors under the leadership of a private family-run consortium and the traditional paper converter, MAY +SPIES. In the coming years the company will invest several million Euros in the site and expand production. As part of the restructuring, the company opted to produce its own steam. Until now, Reflex was supplied by a neighbouring company.
The energy service provider, GETEC heat & power AG, won the company over with its concept for a modular, extendible steam generation plant. The new plant supplies up to 15 tonnes of steam per hour.
GETEC constructs and operates the system on an energy service contracting basis. This means that all services are provided by GETEC, from planning and construction through financing, operation, maintenance and servicing.
Reflex will receive a genuinely comprehensive worry-free package for 10 years and – freed from the responsibility of dealing with its energy supply – can concentrate on its core competences.
