Automation biogas plants
In recent years we have specialized in the automation of biogas plants. Together with our partner firm, Hilbrecht & Schmidt GmbH, we act as full suppliers in this area. In all our projects we implement industry-tested technology, from sensors to switching technology, SPS and visualisation.
- Automation of biogas plants
- Modernization / refitting of biogas plants
- Visualization with biOmatic
- Web portal infOmatic
- Plant optimization
- Controller optimization
The services we have specially adapted for the biogas sector are based on the long-term know-how of our employees, which they have collected in large parts in companies such as GE, Fraunhofer Institute, Siemens, Infineon or Phillips.
Based on our experience with various configurations of biogas plants: direct feed to fermenter, utilization of a mash hydrolysis system, upstream levels of hygienization and pre-acidization, direct heating of fermenters, fermenter heating through heat exchange systems, we have created modules on two control platforms, which enables us to react quickly and cost-efficiently to our customers’ demands.
Whether you are looking for cost-optimised central control or distributed intelligence, ORmatiC offers a solution.

- Control of pump and macerator (especially for concepts with mash/hydrolysis or mixing container)
- Energy management for the maximation of electric power input
- Remote surveillance concept for operators of more than one biogas plants
- Centralised data analysis
- Surveillance and operation via Client Server architecture
