Three new natural gas-fired central energy systems allowing highly efficient combined electricity, heat, and cold generation for automaker BMW Group’s Munich headquarters and production facilities will be delivered by German company ETS (Efficient Technical Solutions), a member of Elevion Group. A leading provider and well-established brand in the German market of comprehensive energy services, the company has been part of CEZ Group’s portfolio of foreign ESCO assets since the last summer.
The comprehensive turnkey delivery will include system equipment, connecting lines, and a heat management control system. Each central energy system consists of a central boiler (unit), a hot-water boiler, and a cooling system. By taking this step, the Munich-based automaker BMW Group will be able to fully replace its current district heating system distributing 70 MW thermal per year as well as to cover its own electricity consumption in the future. Covered by a five-year warranty, the delivery, including installation work, will take place in the second half of this year.
“The BMW contract is another in a long line of prestigious projects implemented by our subsidiary Elevion. Future contracts for other renowned brands are currently under negotiation,” says Pavel Cyrani, Chief Sales and Strategy Officer at ČEZ.
“We are proud that the world-famous automaker BMW trusts our solution and the capabilities of our experts. We take it as an acknowledgment of the position we have gained in the German market over decades of hard work,” says Lars Eberlein, Chairman of the Board of Directors of Elevion Group.
