BG Biogas Service GmbH operates a biogas plant in the Alb-Danube region in both Langenau and Seligweiler, each with a cogeneration power plant and a satellite cogeneration power plant. Until the engine replacement, all four cogeneration power plants had MWM TCG 2016 gas engines. After some 70,000 operating hours, the oldest cogeneration power plant in Langenau was modernized with an MWM TCG 3016 V16 gas engine in the fall of 2018. About a year later, the gas engine in Seligweiler was also replaced with a new MWM TCG 3016 V16 power genset. The plants are fueled with biogas that is gained exclusively from the digestion of energy plants such as corn and whole plant silage.
