The newly established company Inteco 2012 Consulting has acquired a majority stake in the Valencian society ‘Recovery and Treatment of Biomass Trabisa’, which was held by RWE Innogy Iberia Biomass, a subsidiary of the homonym German group. In this sense, Inteco 2012 Consulting, based in Barcelona, now controls 87% of Trabisa, while the remainder is held by a small group of local shareholders.
Trabisa has a facility of 28,000 m2 in Requena (Valencia) and now is handling the treatment and recovery of municipal forestry and agricultural waste from the nearby areas. The company sells processed wood residues to be used as biofuel or in the furniture industry to its clients in Valencia, Madrid and Castilla-La Mancha, among others. Besides, it has requested an increase in its activity and including also the non-hazardous industrial waste treatment, which has plans to start in September.
Inteco, established in Barcelona, is owned by a group of ten professionals with extensive experience in the environmental and energy sectors. Along with the activity of Trabisa, Inteco will also deal with organic waste management in Catalonia, where is already handling two industrial waste management businesses.
Trabisa, which is been operating in the biomass sector for 12 years, is taking in for its services over 1 M €, an amount that their new shareholders expect to double next year.
RWE disinvestments in biomass
The sale of the Valencian society by the German company RWE divestment is part of the divestment the group’s carrying out in our country where they were managing at least eight energy plants based on biomass.
Thus, according to sources consulted by Alimarket Energy, the company has chosen to ‘abandon some projects and sell others’.
Besides Trabisa, RWE has also sold its stake at Juneda Biomass Central to Sener engineer. Anyway, the subsidiary of the German group will continue to operate in our country RWE on the wind power industry through InnogyAersa, a company that manages 447 MW and in 2011 took in 80,24 M € (+2%).
