Silo 1 construction starts
Numerous stakeholders from the worlds of politics, business and the local region were invited to the official start of construction work on Silo 1. Our guests included members of Rostock City Council, together with council president Regine Lück, former mayor Roland Methling and the chair of the Rostock Maritime Council, Hans-Joachim Hasse.
“The aim is to use a heat pump for heating in the future. We want to completely avoid the use of gas and district heating in the building,” said planner Ulf Kristen of PMR.
The small silo in the city docks is being redesigned in keeping with its heritage-protected status and equipped with a sustainable energy supply (heat pump, solar panels and ice storage), thus ensuring that the building meets the 40 EE energy standard under the Federal Funding for Efficient Buildings programme (Bundesförderung für effiziente Gebäude, BEG). Renovation of the brick exterior by recycling the existing bricks will enable the building to blend in with the Hanseatic style of Rostock’s harbour.
“This is a step towards sustainability and a green future for Rostock, packaged in the maritime style of our Hanseatic city,” said Hans-Joachim Hasse, welcoming the company’s commitment to retaining the historic substance of the building.
We now have an exciting two-year construction phase ahead of us. eno energy GmbH is pleased to be part of such an innovative project and would like to thank all those involved, especially at Projektmanagement Rostock GmbH. Completion of the construction project is planned for January 2025.
Silos 1 to 5 play a key role in Rostock harbour’s Maritime Mile.”
