RAUTER, the Styrian concrete specialist and subsidiary of the Kirchdorfer Group, is taking the next step in environmental protection. On September 23, the newly installed photovoltaic system and the new boiler were blessed by Pastor Ciprian Sascau.

As part of the annual staff party, the Rauter team demonstrated its measures for sustainable energy management. In August, a 500 kWP photovoltaic system, which was installed on the roofs of the production halls, was put into operation. This can generate around 500,000 kWh of electricity, most of which is consumed by the company itself. The amount of electricity generated is roughly equivalent to the annual electricity requirements of 100 households. The renewal of the wood chip heating boiler is also in the final stages and will go into operation in the next few weeks.

Managing Director Wilfried Klade is visibly proud of the new measures: “With this plant, we are saving 46 tons of CO2. That’s the equivalent of planting over 2,100 trees. Our aim is to become energy self-sufficient. This investment is sustainable for the coming decades and was implemented at exactly the right time,” Klade is convinced.

At the Niederwölz site, the storage area was also expanded in 2020 with an area of approx. 14,000 m² and two gantry cranes with a load capacity of 20 and 30 tons were installed. During this ceremony, the new investments and the employees were blessed by Pastor Ciprian Sascau, in the presence of Mayor Albert Brunner and GR Hubert Lochmann.

Do you enjoy sharing your knowledge with others?

Did you know that we use recycled car tires in cement production?

The motto here is ‘Recycling old tires instead of disposing of them.’ In Ohlsdorf, Upper Austria, the only used tire recycling plant in Austria is located. Kias Recycling GmbH, a joint venture between ART and the Kirchdorfer Group, supplies this valuable alternative fuel for our cement plant. This plant is renowned globally for its cleanest cement production.


Do you like to think outside the box?

Do you believe that we manufacture stairs for fish?

Fish ladders assist fish in overcoming barriers such as dams or hydroelectric power plants. The unique Kirchdorfer fish passage system is a clever prefabricated system, much like LEGO blocks. In Austria, it has been used to build the highest fish passage in Europe.


Construction sites and a hammer in hand are totally your thing?

Did you know that we are part of the largest photovoltaic facade system in Austria?

In 2023, our joint venture Martini Beton renovated its office building. The exterior transformation resulted in an integrated PV facade that annually produces environmentally friendly solar power equivalent to the energy consumption of around 50 single-family homes.
