HoSt expands biomass boiler portfolio with Eurobiomass Polska acquisition
Netherlands-based biomass combustion technology specialists HoSt has revealed that it has acquired Poland-based biomass boiler manufacturer Eurobiomass Polska sp. z o.o.
"The acquisition of Eurobiomass allows HoSt to continue on its path to increase its already strong position in the bioenergy market”, commented Herman Klein Teeselink, CEO of HoSt.
Previously a part of France-based Leroux & Lotz Technologies (LLT) and member of Altawest Group, Gdańsk-based Eurobiomass Polska was founded in 2005 and specializes in biomass-fired boilers from 0.5 to 12 MW thermal for both hot water and steam applications.
According to HoSt, Eurobiomass has a broad experience with the use of different biomass applications, ranging from clean wood and waste wood to fuels from agricultural residues such as cereal and rapeseed straw, straw pellets and apple pulp. It is the largest manufacturer of straw-fired boilers in Poland.
The deal, the value of which has not been disclosed, enables a significant expansion of HoSt’s combustion product line portfolio making it one of the larger suppliers of solid and gaseous bioenergy systems and components in Europe – anaerobic digesters for agriculture and industry, biogas upgrading systems, biomass and waste-fired boilers and combined heat and power (CHP) plants and fluidized-bed gasifiers.
With this acquisition, the HoSt product range in boilers and combined heat and power (CHP) now range from 0.5 to 25 MW thermal and 5 MW electrical output, said Albert Kuliczkowski, from Eurobiomass and now Country Manager for HoSt in Poland.
