ThyssenKrupp Xervon acquires water-cooled moving grate patents
Effective as of September 20, 2006, ThyssenKrupp Xervon Energy GmbH, Duisburg, has acquired all patents and rights in the water-cooled moving grate system from Koch AG Verbrennungstechnik, Wallisellen. Moreover, the latter's comprehensive know-how in terms of references, drawings, engineering data, etc., has also been taken over.
Since March 2003, ThyssenKrupp Xervon Energy GmbH has acted as exclusive licensee for the water-cooled moving grate system and installed it into many waste incineration plants - in Bremen, Moscow, Stavenhagen, and Iserlohn, for instance. With this acquisition, ThyssenKrupp Xervon Energy is now worldwide the sole marketer and supplier of this successful technology.
The inventor, Theodor Koch, will continue to advise ThyssenKrupp Xervon Energy exclusively in order to further the successful relationship to date and advance the system.
