Let GETEC help you improve your CO2 balance.

Carbon Footprint

Not many industries experience the same dynamic changes in framework conditions like the energy industry does. Sustainability, which used to be a distinguishing feature, is taken for granted these days.

The Paris Agreement as well as the goals “Renewable Energy” and “Measures for Climate Protection” as two of the seventeen Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) attest to the global relevance of the topic. We fully support the SDGs.

From the very beginning, sustainability has been engrained in GETEC’s DNA. We develop solutions that impress not only through economic efficiency, but also through careful use of natural resources. This benefits our customers – and our environment.

The customised GETEC energy solution

Modern and efficient energy supply concept for the dairy industry.

The challenge

Upgrade of the existing boiler house that supplies steam for the dairy, under continuous operation and without interruption. 

The goal

The coverage of the high requirements for heat and power at the Uelzen location was to be realised in an economically viable fashion as compared to the separate generation of heat in the existing boiler system as well as compared to the external acquisition of power. At the same time, it was essential to minimise the risks associated with the transition toward renewable energies, such as grid fluctuations and total loss of power.

Our solution

GETEC set up a cogeneration power plant with two CHP units and a waste heat recovery boiler. The system is completed with the new construction of two natural gas boilers (shell boiler), which replace two outdated existing boilers. In addition, GETEC is supporting Uelzena’s power supply by implementing a smart load management system.

The customised GETEC energy solution

Modern and efficient energy supply concept for the chemical industry.

The challenge

Because the previous steam supply from the power station Mumsdorf was shut down in the summer of 2013, the management of the chemical company was looking for a viable, ultra-efficient and economical energy supply.

The goal

In the context of the supply concept, the idea was to also destroy the climate-damaging nitrous oxide (N2O) that accumulates on site, thereby lowering the greenhouse gas emission.

Our solution

GETEC opted to install two separate shell boilers. One is fired with particularly economical brown coal dust, whilst the other is fired with natural gas.

Facts and Figures

CO2 savings

approximately 100,000 tons of CO2 equivalents per year

Plant

Combined heat and power station with 2 steam boilers and back pressure steam turbine

Supply

Steam, electricity

Installed capacity

Thermal output: 37.1 MW;
Electrical output: 681 kW

We would never have dared to imagine that the problem with nitrous oxide can be resolved with pulverised lignite firing. […] This helps Radici achieve major savings in emissions trading, close to a million euros each year.

Berlin Exhibition Grounds 

Messe Berlin with its fair grounds comprising nearly 550,000 m2 of floor space, 170,000 m2 of hall space (26 halls) and the International Congress Centre (ICC) Berlin is a crucial economic factor for the German capital and is among the ten top-selling trade fair corporations in the world.


The customised GETEC energy solution

The challenge

The energy costs associated with annual heat requirements of approx. 60 million kWh and power requirements of approx. 37 million kWh as well as the associated CO2 emissions represent a significant locational factor. GETEC was asked to develop a cost-efficient and sustainable solution.

The goal

Therefore, Messe Berlin’s goal was to lower the energy costs and the CO2 emissions.

Our solution

Energy savings performance contracting and innovative plant engineering enabled GETEC to lower the energy consumption of Messe Berlin by approximately 30%. This saves approx. 10,000 tonnes of CO2 emissions per year.

UNESCO world heritage site housing estate "Weiße Stadt" in Berlin-Reinickendorf

The successful transition toward renewable energies is a collaborative effort. GETEC in cooperation with real estate companies has been developing successful energy efficiency initiatives since 2013. The foundation was laid with Deutsche Wohnen SE and the milestone project “Weiße Stadt [White City]” of the joint energy services company G+D Energiemanagement mbH. 


The customised GETEC energy solution

The goal is to generate additional profits with a sustainable and consistent realisation of all possible savings potentials.

The challenge

Supply of approx. 2,500 households with heat / combined heat and power station and district heating network with 31 substations
