Major district heating commission in full swing in Mannheim
A joint project undertaken by Max Straube and Kremsmüller Plant Engineering involving the district heating supply of the Mannheim-based energy company MVV
Max Straube Industrierohrleitungsbau GmbH (Industrial Pipeline Construction Ltd.) is currently completing a major contract for MVV Umwelt Asset GmbH in Mannheim as part of the “Friesenheim Island District Heating Backup Plant (BeFI)” project. In this EPC project, Max Straube is fully responsible for the thermo-technical plant engineering and construction. The project is being realized by Max Straube in cooperation with Kremsmüller Plant Engineering.
The contract was awarded by MVV Umwelt Asset GmbH, which is constructing a new district heating backup plant together with the accompanying infrastructure on the site of the Mannheim combined heat and power plant on Friesenheim Island.
Some of the lots (subsections) taken over by Max Straube include:
- Two new hot water generators each with a capacity of 40MWZ
- One new medium-pressure steam generator 50t/h
- Pipeline construction with internal diameters up to DN 1200
By subcontracting the pipeline construction to Kremsmüller Anlagenbau GmbH, existing synergies within the company network can be put to optimum use, thus enabling complex projects such as this to be implemented.
In fact, important components have just been prefabricated at the Kremsmüller headquarters in Steinhausen and are now in the process of being installed at their final destination.
The purpose of the new district heating backup plant is to ensure that MVV can provide the population with a secure supply of district heating in the event of generator failure and during peak loads as part of the climate-neutral conversion of the Mannheim district heating system.
