SAACKE Customer Day in Vienna

Keynote lectures and a visit to a district heating power plant – Developed technologies are already available today

Keynote lectures and a visit to a district heating power plant – Mature technologies are already available today

An implementation decision by the EU Commission changes the world of industrial combustion plants. This is because the "Best Available Techniques" (BAT) legislation that will come into force in 2021 requires significantly stricter emission limits to be observed than before. The aim of the SAACKE Customer Day in Vienna was to prepare companies and decision-makers for this and to highlight both the challenges and opportunities. In the beautiful ambience of the Palais Hansen Kempinski Vienna, specialists from the field provided expert and neutral information on the current status of the bill as well as individual plant solutions that comply with the BAT specifications and even enable an increase in efficiency. They provided answers to some urgent questions: Which technical solutions for reducing emissions are already available today? And: How can operational safety and thus a smooth combustion process be ensured when switching to BAT?

The speakers Dr. Arno Kolbitsch and Dipl.-Ing. Thomas Schröder contributed to the intensive exchange with a competent audience. Dr. Kolbitsch is a renowned expert for the optimisation of boiler plants with regard to availability and emission behaviour. In his lecture, he provided a well-founded technical background on environmentally friendly boiler engineering. Dipl.-Ing. Thomas Schröder from SAACKE then pointed out the technical solutions to prepare for future BAT emission limits. "This successful event came at exactly the right time", one participant was pleased with the lively exchange of information following the specialist presentations and explained: "Industrial plant operators and plant constructors are unclear about the country-specific design with regard to deadlines and emission values. There is an urgent need for information. Today, many question marks have been removed".

District heating plant proves: Technology for BAT 2021 already exists

The highlight of the customer day in the Austrian capital was a visit by tram to the Arsenal district heating plant, which helps to cover demand peaks and immediately replaces other systems. This ensures that more than 70,000 households are supplied with district heating at all times. The heating plant therefore demonstrated very clearly that forward planning and technical implementation are already meeting BAT requirements. Today's technology is already off the starting blocks for tomorrow's requirements.
