Axpo and Hitachi Zosen Inova (HZI) have concluded a contract for the takeover of Kompogas business activities in the area of plant construction. Zurich-based HZI, formerly Von Roll Inova, is the global market leader in the area of waste-sourced thermal energy recovery. With this acquisition, the company is expanding its portfolio and, in the future, will also offer construction of the proven Kompogas plants for energy recovery through fermentation. In doing so, the company will carry on the tradition of the Kompogas brand that was successfully established by Axpo. Operation of the plants in Switzerland will remain with Axpo.
