Mobile energy, independent and flexible

Energy supply is one of the fundamental production factors in industry and related trades. Heat for the heating of buildings and production facilities, refrigeration for air-conditioning and cooling, steam for production processes – continuous and reliable provision of the required forms of energy is a decisive element in the process sequence. Power plants from HOTMOBIL can assure this supply on-demand.

Flexible and cost-effective energy supply

With mobile power plants, your energy supply remains flexible at all times: as rolling miniature power plants for temporary use during maintenance or conversion work, as stationary container-based power plants for heating or steam and as transportable cold water kits, energy can be called upon at the required power level using modern, efficient technology - and leasing is available as well as purchase. This saves on investment costs - money does not need to be tied up in 'redundant' (i.e. backup) energy supply systems.

Customized energy supply independent of location

Mobile energy gives you more latitude for making important investment decisions. Pending modernization of plant to generate heat, cold or steam require an appropriate length of lead time in order to identify the most cost-effective and efficient solution. True of leasing as well as of purchase: the costs incurred by the temporary use of mobile energy can be lower than the costs of prematurely rapid modernization. The engineers in our Planning department can design you a customized power plant to suit your specific needs for heating, refrigeration or the supply of steam: not only that, they can also provide you at the same time with answers to decisive question, such as 'Are parts of the production process to be relocated to a different site?' If so, one of our container-based power plants simply relocates with you. Is production to start up in the new building even though some of the technical facilities are still under construction? The transportable heating power plant from HOTMOBIL can deliver the heat you require right here and right now.

Guarantee against production downtime

Our mobile power plants can be connected up within your plant, even over extended distances. Not only that, but HOTMOBIL guarantees its connection within your company right around the clock, for whenever you have a sudden and short-term need for mobile energy.

Mobile energy - to keep the heart of the town beating

Towns and municipalities need a reliable form of energy supply. 'Sensitive' buildings such as hospitals, nursery schools and care facilities cannot tolerate any interruption in the provision of their heating and cooling systems. HOTMOBIL is on call 365 days a year with its mobile energy power stations to deliver heat, cold or steam - for days, weeks, months or on a permanent basis.

Local supply of remote heating and cooling energy

Any functioning infrastructure demands reliably continuous supply of energy to towns, residential areas and industrial zones. Mobile energy enables modernization of heating facilities to go ahead without any makeshift stopgap measures. Renovation work on public-sector facilities can therefore proceed even during the cold months of the year. In summer, mobile heating systems can provide hot water for public swimming pools. Wherever the required cooling system fails, our mobile refrigeration stations can provide a temporary source of cooling power.

Safe operation of standalone local heating supply systems

Local and municipal supply companies are coming increasingly to rely on decentralized local heat supply through the use of regenerative (sustainable) energies or combined heat and power (CHP). The construction of redundant power generating facilities does however call for greater investment and this imposes a burden on municipal budgets. Mobile 'power stations' for temporary periods can save the expense of maintaining backup systems that increase fixed overheads and that operate at low levels of utilization. Reliable protection from the failure of a local heating supply is provided by the HOTMOBIL Energy Guarantee: for a modest annual fee, the requisite heating, refrigeration or steam generating system is kept aside for delivery and commissioning at short notice within a contractually agreed period of time.

Cost-effective provision of energy for local power supply

The scope for leasing mobile power stations of this kind enables infrastructure to contend with emergencies and any conversion work that may be required. For continuous operation to cover peak loads, and for Contracting projects, the level of investment in an ideally dimensioned energy supply facility can be tailored precisely to match your budget. Talk to us about your specific requirements - we will be delighted to get involved in your local energy supply project and will be pleased to provide you with a customized quotation.


Mobile energy for continous production

Electricity generated from biogas with combined heat and power (CHP) constitutes an important segment of the supply of power from renewables. For newly commissioning biogas facilities, the biogas propellant needs to be substituted in the start-up phase. Mobile heating power stations can assist during the initial heating phase by providing an external supply of heat

Mobile fermenter heating for the start-up phase

With recently commissioned biogas facilities, the supply of thermal energy is essential until such time as biogas starts to be produced automatically in the fermenter tank. A simple, cost-effective variant is to support the initial heating phase with mobile heating plant.

An assured supply of electricity revenue right from Day One

The mobile heating plant is connected directly to the fermenter tank throughout the initial heating phase and supplies the requisite heating power in a direct manner. This saves the need to convert the engine on the biogas plant to run on different fuels. Furthermore, the biomass 'bonus' is protected during the initial heating phase because the biogas engine does not need to be run on fuels that are not covered by the biogas bonus scheme. Not only that but, during subsequent start-ups after maintenance work, the biogas plant can be powered up much faster than would otherwise be the case.

Assured operation and supply - even with a guarantee

The broad performance range of mobile heating plants from HOTMOBILmakes it possible to heat all fermenter sizes to the required temperature level. For this, the range of plant we keep across Germany includes mobile heating plants rated for up to 950 kW as well as mobile heating containers rated for up to 2500 kW of heating power. Mobile energy is also in service to safeguard the ongoing production of heat and power - to cover peak loads or during maintenance work on the CHP plant. To safeguard production and for security of supply for 'sensitive' heat consumers, HOTMOBIL offers its 'Energy Guarantee': for a modest annual fee, we set aside the most appropriate heating plant for your needs and can deliver this to you within a contractually agreed period of time. The HOTMOBIL Energy Guarantee saves plant operators the need to invest in a redundant energy system.

Mobile energy, the engine driving construction progress

Modernization of the energy-related aspects of buildings without interruption of heating supply is made possible by mobile heating systems. In new-build properties, this can speed up drying processes. Mobile refrigeration systems deliver the cooling energy needed for the air-conditioning of buildings. Mobile power stations from HOTMOBIL deliver the required power when and where it is needed.

Energy for buildings

In residential properties, about 75% of the total energy expended is required to provide remote heating with a further 12% for the provision of hot water. In modern buildings, it is a standard feature for this to go hand in hand with the provision of heating and cooling functions. Industrial buildings need heating power as well as refrigeration and steam for cooling purposes and for process energy. Energy-related modernization projects in inhabited residential property require the hot water supply to remain in working order throughout the process.

Shortening drying times and honouring deadlines consistently

Whether at the project stage or in an existing property - the provision of energy is a fundamental component of any viable building services industry.
