AGO AG receives follow-up order from Heineken, South Africa
- Order volume €1.3 million
- Energy centre to be extended
- Construction scheduled to take place between January and July 2011
AGO AG Energie + Anlagen (WKN: A0LR41, ISIN: DE000A0LR415) received a follow-up order for the energy centre of the Heineken brewery near Johannesburg, South Africa, which the company had built in August 2009. The order volume for planning and constructing the plant amounts to €1.3 million.
The upgrade of the current hot water plant with 35 MW total output is scheduled to start in January 2011. AGO AG Energie + Anlagen plans to finish construction work in July 2011. Within this period, the company aims to add a 15 MW boiler system to the existing heating system and boiler house and also expand the peripherals.
As well as maintaining and remote controlling the existing hot water plant, AGO AG has been commissioned to control and supervise the construction of the new system. The company anticipates additional five-digit annual revenue from these activities.
AGO AG was also the general technical contractor for the existing energy centre, and as such responsible for its planning, delivery, assembly and commissioning. Construction was completed in just six months, and the plant started operation right on schedule and in time for the FIFA World Cup 2010 in South Africa.
“Heineken brewery’s follow-up order for an extension confirms our technical and operating know-how in implementing modern energy centres and innovative supply solutions. We aim to once again realise this project to our customer’s complete satisfaction with the help of selected local companies. In the medium to long term, we also expect to receive follow-up orders from Heineken in Europe,” commented Hans Ulrich Gruber, CFO of AGO AG Energie + Anlagen.
