ZAUNERGROUP is expanding!

Due to our growing business in Life Sciences and Mission Critical, we also decided to expand our headquarter: Space for more Zauner-Heros will be created in the form of a second floor of our offices, as well as a new parking lot and an additional warehouse building.

A survey among our employees was made at the start of this project, so we were able to include wishes and suggestions of our Zauner crew in the design of our expansion.

The fruit, starch and sugar group AGRANA has built a second wheat starch plant at the site of its biorefinery in Pischelsdorf in the Tullnerfeld region & Zaunergroup was among those involved. We were contracted for the decanter station as well as the equipment assembly of the starch factory and the decanter station. Furthermore, we also completed the piping for the starch and gluten drying. 5 km of pipes, 7000 fittings, 25 tons of secondary steel construction, … was installed in over 64,000 hours of work. The project was completed safe, on time and without any incidents. The start of construction was in March 2018, the plant was completed in December 2019.

Half time in Prague

The operator of the Prague municipal waste incineration plant, Prazske sluzby a.s. has ordered the ZAUNERGROUP for the engineering, the supply, the dismantling/erection and commissioning for the “revamping” of the flue gas cleaning systems of the 4-line municipal waste incineration plant. Hereby, all 4 existing flue gas cleaning systems of the municipal waste incineration plant will be adapted to the new incineration technologies and boiler conditions over the next 4 years.

Smurfit Kappa Nettingsdorf invests & Zauner is part of it

Smurfit Kappa Nettingsdorf is investing €134 million at its Nettingsdorf site to renew the energy supply as part of the Future Energy Plant project. The core of the project is a new soda boiler and a new steam turbine. Zauner Anlagentechnik GmbH is part of this project with the section “Balance of Plants”. This part includes the connection of the new plant with the existing one, as well as a new condensate system and the piping of the turbine hall. Zauner provides the know-how in design and planning as well as the competence in assembly and the global control concept.

A milestone was the lifting of the 105 t B2 pipe bridge, which was lifted in two parts on 20.11.2019. A truck-mounted crane with a load capacity of 500t was used for this purpose. The upcoming work includes the completion of the condensate system and the lifting of the remaining three pipe bridges in January. Also in January, the assembly work will start in the turbine hall, which represents the largest part of the BOP construction phase. The new plant will start up in summer 2020, replacing the old soda boiler and steam turbine.
