Well-timed before the start of the football world cup 2010 in South Africa, AGO AG Energie + Anlagen (cusip number: A0LR41 / ISIN: DE000A0LR415)has completed and handed over the energy center for Heineken's new brewery near Johannesburg. The order value for this project amounted to about EUR 3.8 million. AGO AG as the technical general contractor was responsible for the design, delivery, assembly and commissioning of the energy center. The construction of the hot water plant with a total performance of 20 MW took AGO AG a period of just six months. Thus, the plant could be taken into operation according to plan in August this year.

AGO AG is also planned to take care of the hot water plant's maintenance and remote control. From this activity, the engineering company from Kulmbach is expecting proceeds with five-digit amounts.

The supply plant is fired with the primary energy source biogas which is provided for free by the in-house waste water plant. In order to balance peak loads, conventional energy sources such as natural gas and fuel oil are used. The brewery is planning to sell an annual beer amount of 2 million hectoliters.

"Since the foundation of AGO energy in Cape Town last year, we have been very active in the South African market. We are already negotiating intensively with further potential customers from this region and could make interesting contacts at a Trade Fair in July 2009. We were even mentioned in the local press. The number of negotiations and the great interest in the innovative technology used by AGO AG Energie + Anlagen confirm our aim, to determinedly keep establishing our activities in South Africa. With the implementation of energy projects in South Africa, we are planning to generate an annual total turnover of up to EUR 5.0 million, says Hans Ulrich Gruber, speaker of the Board of AGO AG Energie + Anlagen. "Due to the very successful project implementation in South Africa, we are additionally expecting followup orders from Heineken within Europe", says Gruber.
