The groundbreaking ceremony was held by Gerald Gfrerer, Technical Managing Director of voestalpine Tubulars, Project Manager Helfried Wernigg and Bioenergie Managing Director Jakob Edler. Provincial Councilor Ursula Lackner and Kindberg Mayor Christian Sander also took part in this festive occasion.

In the near future, this project will make it possible to use around 4 MW of our waste heat for the municipality and save up to 3,400 t of CO2.
