The first wind farm in the port of Hamburg will commence operations at TRIMET

Feb 24, 2017 | On the premises of the TRIMET aluminum smelter in the port of Hamburg, the municipal energy supplier Hamburg Energie has put three wind turbines into operation. Hamburg’s First Mayor, Olaf Scholz, called the facility a further beacon for Hamburg, Germany’s wind capital: “The three large wind turbines in front of an impressive harbor backdrop clearly show that commercial premises, more than ever before, can contribute to the production of energy. This project, the installation of a wind farm in the heavily-used commercial section of the port, is unique in Germany.”

TRIMET’s “virtual battery” will be part of KlimaExpo.NRW

Jan 13, 2017 | Since its invention in 1886, the aluminum production process has been based on a constant supply of energy. With the “virtual battery,” TRIMET Aluminium SE has overcome this dogma for the first time, making the energy-intensive electrolysis process more flexible. This enables a huge power store to be created, facilitating the integration of electricity into the power grid generated sporadically from renewable energy sources. For this exemplary commitment to climate protection, Viktor Haase, Head of Division, Cross-sectoral Environmental Matters and Sustainable Development in the Ministry for Climate Protection, Environment, Agriculture, Conservation, and Consumer Protection of the State of North Rhine-Westphalia (MKULNV), officially included the project in KlimaExpo.NRW today on behalf of NRW Minister for Climate Protection Johannes Remmel.
