URBAS is a privately owned company which operates internationally in three main business fields, Steel Construction, Steel Hydraulic Engineering and Energy Technology. The company was founded in 1929 and has since then maintained its tradition of high competence in all aspects of steel construction.

The youngest section of the company, Energy Technology, utilizes this experience combined with the latest scientific findings to realize the complete potential of biomass technologies. The URBAS research center is an innovative driver for the development of economic and ecological efficiency of modern power systems. 350 qualified employees, based on two separate sites hold responsibility for the entire process chain of projects: Planning, production, installation and maintenance.


Plants designed to generate heat and electricity through the best use of biomass fuels.
Combined Heat and Power. The combined generation of heat and electricity ensuring maximum efficiency in the utilization of biomass fuels. URBAS have realized such CHP plants based on the steam cycle which are available as turnkey, URBAS biomass cogeneration plants.

Process Steam Plants

Plants designed for the generation of high and low pressure steam used in production processes.

Process Steam plants. Many production processes in Food Processing-, Breweries-, Pharmaceutical and other various industrial enterprises rely on steam of the correct quality and quantities. Whether its low pressure or high pressure, URBAS are able to provide and realize plants which meet requirements and supply the most sophisticated solutions.

Hot Water Plants

Plants which generate hot water for the supply of industrial and district heating networks.

Hot water plants. URBAS provides biomass boiler systems which supply hot water energy for industrial or district heating usages with power ratings ranging from 1 to 50 MW. Every plant is tailored to the needs of the operator to find the best solution depending on everything from fuel availability to the flue gas cleaning to ash removal to energy distribution.

Wood Gas CHP

Electrical and thermal energy from wood.

A combustible gas, wood gas, is drawn from wood through a means of thermochemical processes which take place in a specially designed reactor. The raw gas is then separated of dust and tars through a filtering system. This cleaned gas is then used to produce combined heat and power through a gas engine + generator. Unlike other CHP technologies which are based on the combustion of biomass, and require a working medium, (water in a steam turbine, heat oil in the ORC-process) wood gas cogeneration requires no intermediate medium thus resulting in a higher electrical efficiency throughout the entire system.
