Weir Group Plans to Sell Flow Control Division

The Weir Group’s board of directors will initiate a process to sell the Flow Control division. This process will focus on maximizing value for shareholders, with all options to be considered and no fixed timetable. Proceeds will be used to further reduce leverage and to fund future investment in growth in Weir’s core platforms. The current assumption is that proceeds would not be received before 2019.

Wey Valves Supplying German Biogas Plant

In recent years Wey valves have become increasingly common in biogas plants. One such plant can be found at BioEnergie GmbH & Co. KG in Waldmünchen, Germany, which is operated jointly by six farmers. The plant produces a total of 4.5 million kWh of electricity annually for the grid operator Bayernwerk. The plant also provides local heating for 38 buyers via a network measuring 2.3 km in length. Around 30% of this energy is generated in Waldmünchen from slurry and manure, a further 20% each from grass, maize and cereals, and approximately 10% from wheatgrass and silphium perfoliatum – a species of plant native primarily to North America.
