The technical, organisational and commercial management of Prolignis biomass energy plants is our core competence. Take advantage of our strengths in process-design and -optimisation.
This means Prolignis runs its own energy plants or supports and consults the customer as experienced service provider. Our comprehensive knowledge as "energy entrepreneur" originates from the experiences made in the previous projects. And our experience grows with every new project site, supply concept and energy supply contract.
For our customer's benefit we follow - alongside a sustainable supply strategy - one specific goal: economic success. You will benefit from a customised service package.
At the Melsungen site Prolignis carries the commercial responsibility as plant operator. Our competent and highly specialised staff takes care of the technical, organisational and commercial management of the plant: this is the Prolignis all-inclusive package.
When looking at our service portfolio, this all-inclusive package is only a part of what we do: we are happy to take over operations in already existing plants or consult plant operators with regards to optimising the process - as a whole or just in parts.
Our Prolignis expertise in operations management makes us proven specialists in the optimisation of biomass energy plants.
Knowledge about the raw material wood is enormously important to optimally attune every process - from the delivery of the fuel to the disposal of the ashes - to plant machinery. Prolignis therefore trains its staff in wood procurement, wood qualities and the evaluation process of wood deliveries.
Fuel- / procurement management
The fuel- and procurement management is the basis of plant operations. This aspect ties up a lot of capital and it is therefore critical that the correct amount and quality of material is purchased. As wood experts we examine supplier contracts and restructure them as required. With our specialist knowledge in index linked price adjustment clauses we are able to support our customers in the completion of new longer term contracts.
Site logistics is yet another important aspect for success in the process chain, and often an area with optimisation potential. For this reason, we analyse the processes at the storage site. In order to minimize the natural loss of wood, a correct storage concept is essential. Furthermore the conveyor system has to be planned very thoroughly to ensure a streamlined and efficient process.
You can rely on the Prolignis expertise in plant technology. Our engineers will carry out a comprehensive analysis of the technical components and verify whether the components are attuned correctly to each other.
Depending on the fuel type, Prolignis is constantly working on expanding its competence in waste management. We evaluate various ways to dispose of ash and try to identify the most ecologically-friendly and cost-effective options.
The sale of heat energy
The sale of thermal energy is the most important aspect for economic success. Therefore we analyse potential locations of the biomass plant, determine potential customers for thermal energy and deal with the execution of heat sales.
Prolignis examines your business organisation and lays out key results. A newly structured organisation chart often assists in highlighting development potential, in clarifying responsibilities and lead to a more efficient operations process.
Controlling und monitoring
By processing and assessing key statistics in a 'plan - actual comparison' Prolignis identifies deviations and recommends appropriate measures. This way you have the right tools for the job, and can manage your business successfully.
