Changes in the production and energy supply:
- RES: Solar Thermal
Fleischwaren Berger GmbH is a meat-processing company (Sieghartskirchen, Austria) producing approximately 80-90 tons of meat and sausage products per day. At Berger solar flat plate collectors with an overall area of ca. 1,067 m² are installed on a field next to the production facility including a storage tank (60 m³). The produced thermal energy is used for feed water preheating (30°C up to 95°C ) for steam production for ham cooking and hot water preheating from about 40°C up to 70°C required for drying the air conditioning systems (climatic chamber and maturation room for production of long-lasting sausages). The implementations at Berger concentrate on centralized water and steam production facilities that can be found in almost any industrial production site that uses thermal energy. It therefore easily can be copied to other sites and therefore offers a high replication potential.
