Fliegl Brings Expertise to UK’s AD and Biomass Market

German farm equipment manufacturer Fliegl – best known for its push-off trailers and agricultural machinery – is now hoping to capitalise on the UK’s growing renewable energy sector.

The family-run company, which recently opened a new headquarters and factory in Lincolnshire, has identified the growth of biogas and biomass technology as a key area moving forward.

It has been involved in the renewables sector in its native Germany and across other parts of Europe for a number of years – providing feed-in systems for AD plants, woodchip dryers and various other attachments for the storage, transportation and handling of substrate.

Jose Viedma, Fliegl Commercial Director for the UK, said they now hoped to use that experience to help British farmers make their own installations more efficient.

“The renewables sector is an area that we’re already heavily involved in within Europe, with years of experience in both biogas and biomass technologies,” he said.

“We know it’s competitive and there are already a lot of other manufacturers but we think we’ll be able to make inroads into the market.

“We have installed more than 1,100 AD plant feeder systems in Europe – so we’re confident that our quality and technology is second to none.”

Among the products the company will be manufacturing in the UK is the Fliegl Biomat – a stationary feed-in-system for AD plants, made from either steel or plastic.

Designed for all raw materials – including maize, grass silage, solid manure and woodchip – the patented ‘push-off’ feeding floor moves the substrate to the dosing unit in a controlled way.

The Biomat delivers energy savings of between 64 and 77% compared to other systems – with a power consumption of between 0.41 and 0.65kWh per tonne of substrate, depending on how the unit is set-up and which dosing attachment is used.
