The wood pellet system, consisting of four boilers, with a total output of 880 kilowatts (kW), covers the entire heat demand of all 233 residential units on an area of 23,000 square meters. This makes the plant one of the largest in the residential real estate sector, which enables a heat supply with energy from 100 % renewable sources.
