Plant Manufacturer Expanded Portfolio

In January this year, Dieffenbacher – an international active manufacturer of press systems and complete production plants for the wood-based panels, forming and recycling industries – acquired the know-how and key assets of Austrian company BERTSCHenergy, through the newly formed Dieffenbacher Energy GmbH subsidiary.

The acquisition would accelerate the manufacturer’s ability to support its customers while helping to shape Europe’s rapidly evolving energy future, a press release said.

According to the German company, Dieffenbacher’s increased portfolio will include fluidized bed combustion systems for solid fuels (e.g. biomass), gas and steam turbines for power and steam production, and industrial waste heat systems. In addition, the acquisition would extend its long-time use of conventional grate firing in energy systems.
