ANDRITZ MeWa launches successful collaboration with new trading partner in France
Graz/Gechingen -- ANDRITZ MeWa, part of international technology Group ANDRITZ, is further extending its worldwide sales network. A partnership was launched this summer with Graen Tech, based in Kehl, Germany, for the sale of ANDRITZ MeWa’s shredding and crushing machines in France.
The new partnership has already been very successful: An agricultural operation in the small French community of Vihiers, located between the cities of Nantes and Tours, commissioned ANDRITZ MeWa to supply a Bio-QZ 1200 cross-flow shredder for pre-treatment of cow and horse manure. The customer aims to make greater use of the large energy potential of the manure and prevent floating layers in the fermenter.
The Bio-QZ reduces the manure practically to “bite-sized” pieces for the microorganisms in the biogas plant and increases the surface area of the material. As a result, the cow and horse manure mix very well with the other fermentation substrate in the fermenter. A decisive advantage of mechanical treatment in the Bio-QZ is its distinctly positive impact on the gas yield. ANDRITZ MeWa has already succeeded in winning a large number of orders in this sector in Europe.
Graen Tech is an established company with extensive know-how in the development, manufacture, and sale of industrial plants in France. The company offers comprehensive services from a single source: technical and commercial consulting for initial and follow-up projects, project management, as well as maintenance and repair work.
